Center for Youth Ministry Training

The Center for Youth Ministry Training (CYMT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to equip youth ministers and churches to develop theologically informed and practically effective youth ministries. CYMT partners with churches from multiple denominations within a four-hour radius of Memphis, TN and Austin, TX to place students from the CYMT Graduate Residency who serve for 3 years as their youth minister. During the 3-year practicum, residents work towards their Master of Arts in Youth Ministry in partnership with either Memphis Theological Seminary or Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. In addition to the placement of the resident, CMT equips partner churches with the tools to develop sustainable youth ministries. To learn more about becoming a Partner Church or a Graduate Resident, visit CYMT.
