The Center for Youth Ministry Training equips leaders and communities of faith to develop innovative, effective, and theologically informed ministries so youth may experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ, leading to identity and purpose. The CYMT accomplishes this mission through three primary initiatives: the Graduate Residency in Youth Ministry, in partnership with Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary; Theology Together; and the Innovation Laboratory. CYMT was created in 2006. www.cymt.org
CYMT believes the church and our organization are most representative of Christ when people of all contexts and perspectives have a voice at our table. That’s why we’re actively and intentionally prioritizing diversity of all forms among our staff, residents and partner ministries. We are still learning and growing, but if you share our passion and love for young people, we have a seat for you at CYMT.
