Youth Ministry

Are your youth prepared to engage the culture with the truth and beauty of the Gospel?

Today’s youth have so many issues to navigate and more information at the tips of their fingers than previous generations could have ever dreamed. As a result, 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 that with good biblical teaching and you have a winning combination. Southern Evangelical Seminary & Bible College provides integrated training in theology, philosophy, and apologetics that will enable you to equip your youth to proclaim the Gospel, engage the culture, and defend the Truth.

Taking You Beyond Online Education

Students 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or biblical studies are impressed when they discover how our digital campus experience pushes far beyond the outdated models of asynchronous education most schools still use. Everything we have developed at SES will equip you to engage a culture that is hostile to the Gospel, and you can get this training without leaving your current ministry context.

Why Should You Seriously Consider Studying at SES?

You almost certainly have at least some basic — and perhaps even advanced — knowledge of Christian theology and apologetics. Many new students at SES have studied books like Tactics by Gregory Koukl, Lewis’ Mere Christianity, or I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by SES alum Frank Turek and SES co-founder Norman Geisler. These are all very helpful resources, but perhaps you have reached that point in your self-guided research where you hit a wall or find yourself out of your depth.

It’s one thing to employ tactics effectively in conversation and know the basics of Christianity. It’s another thing to realize you have not been grounded in a sound philosophy that integrates into a full, robust systematic theology. You can be a good philosopher without being a good apologist, but it does not work the other way around! Giving you the philosophical foundation you need for both theology and apologetics is just one of the ways that a degree or certificate from SES will serve you well.

"SES taught me to see the gap in my discipleship strategy. I was faithfully teaching what to believe biblically, but I was leaving out the why we believe it and why it matters both personally and culturally to have a correct view of reality. My education at SES has strengthened me as a discipler and I am grateful!"
