The YLTP is an incredible opportunity for an emerging leader to be developed in their ministry with teens. It is a working partnership between the emerging leader, the local church, and FEB Pacific. This program can help an existing volunteer in youth ministry to grow in skills and confidence as a youth worker (through a 1 year certificate program) — or to challenge an emerging leader toward full time pastoral ministry to teens (through the full 3 year, mentored program). Please take the time to read through the description of this program here: http://www.nbseminary.ca/academic-resources/undergraduate-studies/yltp/
1. The local church you are a part of must be willing to support you. This means the youth pastor or senior pastor is willing to mentor you — the church has identified within you a call toward youth ministry — and the church desires to financially contribute one third of your educational costs. We would love to hear from you and help you sort this out — contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Discover your academic elegibility. If #1 is settled, then contact Northwest Baptist Seminary and find out what approach will work best for you. The point person at the seminary is Mark Carroll, and you can contact him at: Mark.Carroll@twu.ca
3. You will be required to have an interview with some team members of the FEB Youth Network. We want to hear about your conversion, your call to youth ministry, and your heart for this program. We want to encourage and support your pursuit of ministry to teens.
4. Ensure your mentor is qualified. If the youth pastor or senior pastor has not been approved as mentors in this program, they need to work through our application process. They can request the application here: email@example.com
