The purpose of youth pastoral ministry training is to produce pastors who can love, feed, and lead God’s people in a way that advances God’s mission in the world. The individually designed and personally supervised programme is designed to equip our graduates with the knowledge, skill, character, and passion to do this, recognising the variety of contexts and roles in which they will serve.
Students accepted into this programme will graduate with:
Bachelor of Applied Theology
Diploma of Pastoral Leadership – specialising in Youth
A Carey Baptist College Youth Pastoral Leadership Commendation
3 years of Biblical & Theological learning provided by our Bachelor of Applied Theology, which includes mission, formation and ministry courses focussing on youth ideally suited to Youth Pastoral Leadership:
Foundations of Youth Ministry

Adolescent Development & Spirituality
Te Ao Maori
Introduction to Preaching
Introduction to Pastoral Care
Spirituality of a Leader
I would recommend the YPL track at Carey for anyone who wants to work with youth.
It is challenging but very rewarding; it sets you up for ministry and gives you lifelong relationships with others in youth ministry.
