MAST 6350 (3-3-0) Family-Based Student Ministry
A study of the developmental aspects of the way junior and senior high school students relate to and live with their parents, siblings, and extended family members. Special emphasis will be given to the identification of needs and problems unique to families, both churched and unchurched, and the value of local churches addressing those needs and problems. Special attention will also be given to such topics as the relationship between adolescents and middle-adulthood, the separation process, multiple family configurations of modern society, and sibling relationships. The students will also develop a strategic plan to minister to teenagers and their families through the local church. Online.
