From Our Faculty

Training and equipping are at the heart of the gospel mission. We are commanded to teach, to make disciples, and to equip the saints. When we isolate ourselves from this endeavor we lose perspective. When we engage in training, we gain passion and purpose in the kingdom issues that God has ordained.

Michelle Anthony

Dean of Youthmin Academy & Family Ministry Architect at David C Cook

As a seminary professor with over 30 years of experience training and equipping ministry leaders, I believe Youthmin Academy is an excellent opportunity for ministry practitioners who are not able to attend university or seminary to receive quality training. Faculty members from acclaimed institutions across North America have joined together to ​provide youth ministry leaders with the resources they need to excel in their God-given responsibilities. I am happy to play a role in this program and I whole-heartedly endorse its faculty and course offerings.

Michael J. Anthony, Ph.D., Ph.D.

Research Professor of Educational Leadership Talbot School of Theology

God is raising up a new generation of youth ministry leaders that passionately want to make life long disciples that change the world. This generation is learning to think and lead differently and are bringing a fresh vision to their local churches. Youthmin Academy will equip and empower you to be one of these dynamic leaders in these important times.

Dr. Bill Staffieri

The Youthmin Academy meets a real need by offering highly skilled and valuable professional training in easily-accessed format, fitting the real-life needs of youth leaders. The ability to interact with the incredible faculty and fellow leaders from around the country through online connections will allow those who did not have the opportunity for formal education to be thoroughly equipped for the good works God has planned for them.

Dave Keehn, Ph.D.

Director of Christian Ministries / Associate Professor
Biola University

When God has called you to a ministry, don't let a sense of inadequacy or a 'poor educational background' keep you from following His lead. Youthmin Academy can help you discover and accomplish God's purpose in your life!
