The Next Steps course is for the purpose of understanding the findings from the Adventist Millennial Study conducted by the Barna Group, and empowering a research-informed, relevant approach to young adult ministry.
The Next Steps course does not assume any prior knowledge in young adult ministry, welcoming any and all participants willing to learn, grow, and implement mentorship with next generations. After watching the videos, completing course learning materials and activities, and taking short multiple choice quizzes, you’ll earn 0.4 continuing education units [CEU] and a training certificate in young adult ministry for your Adventist Learning Community ePortfolio.
By the end of the Next Steps course you will be able to apply the research findings from the Adventist Millennial Study to young adult ministry in various contexts.
