Free Course for Youth Pastors
Gaining a deeper understanding of today’s teenagers—and learning powerful tools to evangelize and minister to them—is the focus of a free course for youth pastors this fall at Baptist Bible Seminary. “Impacting Today’s Youth Culture” may be taken for seminary credit tuition-free. Three veteran youth ministry specialists will lead the course: Mel Walker, Dwight Peterson, and Dennis Wilhite. Walker is BBC&S vice president for Alumni and Church Relations and founder of Vision For Youth. He wrote the Next Generation series of youth ministry books published by Regular Baptist Press and The Greenhouse Project. Peterson, a veteran coach and youth pastor, directs BBC’s Teen Leadership Conference. And Wilhite is professor and dean of BBC’s School of Global Ministries and founder of Pilgrimage Educational Resources.

The four-day course runs daily Oct. 9–12 from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Clarks Summit, Pa., campus. The class is offered during the annual Celebration on the Summit week at BBC&S that features homecoming activities and more. Limited on-campus housing is available for $15 a night.
