Yet, today’s youth have so many issues to navigate and more information at the tips of their fingers than ever before. As a result, without solid guidance, false ideas about God and Christianity run rampant. We all know the stats about the alarming number of youth leaving the church. Good apologetics addresses almost all of the main reasons given for their departure. Combine solid apologetics training with good biblical teaching and you have a winning combination for youth ministry.
Through integrated apologetics-focused Christian education, undergirded with sound philosophy and theology, Southern Evangelical Seminary will equip you to form a complete and systematic Christian worldview. This vital training provides the necessary tools you need for effective evangelism and discipleship. These tools can be practically incorporated into your own ministry as you equip your youth to proclaim the Gospel and remain steadfast in the truth.
*”Biblical Worldview” is defined here as making sure our understanding/choices are consistent with God’s principles and commands.
Youth pastors looking at online programs in theology, philosophy, apologetics, or biblical studies are impressed when they discover how our digital campus experience pushes far beyond the outdated models of asynchronous education most schools still use.
