This concentration is designed for students who are interested in bridging their theological and biblical studies with a study in practical theology. Particular emphasis is placed on children, youth, young adult and college, and families. To understand the development of the adolescent (typically those between the ages of twelve to mid-twenties) and how to translate the Gospel and Christian Discipleship into their sub-culture is key for students within this concentration.
