B.A./B.Th. Youth Ministry

Overview

The Youth Ministry focus combines 28 months of Horizon’s Pastoral Leadership program (includes 4-month internship) with a 10-month Youth Care Worker’s Certificate or similar program from an approved institution (e.g., Saskatchewan Polytechnic; Red River College). Students graduate with both a B.A. from Horizon and a Certificate from an approved institution.

Duration: 28 months at Horizon*

+ Youth Care Workers Certificate

*Month duration is estimated on average full-time completion rates of 10 courses per 8-month period. Actual completion rates vary based on individual student course loads.
