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.

Thoroughly delightful and informative presentation. Great data analysis transformed into extremely insightful and usable information. Highly recommended.
This course has transformed the way I used to see myself and others. Thank you so much for this exciting course.
Great course and content; leaving room for individual churches to work it out in their context
I would encourage all church leaders to view this series!
