This Week on the Hill: Residential classes start next month, Ross discusses youth ministry

| Jul 13, 2020

"This Week on the Hill" is a weekly roundup of campus news, announcements, and events from Southwestern Seminary and Scarborough College.

How COVID could trigger a radical youth ministry shift

Youth ministry needs to change, and COVID has made those changes more necessary and more possible.

Last week on Ministry Now, we were joined by Richard Ross, professor of student ministry at Southwestern Seminary, to discuss how the current pandemic could be leveraged to drive needed change in youth ministry strategies.

Ministry Now is a resource from Southwestern Seminary, helping you live your calling in an ever-changing ministry landscape. Episodes air at 10am CT on Facebook and YouTube Premiere.

This week, we'll be joined by W. Madison Grace, discussing house churches: the church of the COVID era?


Residential classes are on!

On-campus classes are indeed scheduled to start August 17. Check out the full course list, choose the class style that fits you, and get registered today.
