The adolescent years are some of the most important developmental years for young people. It’s a time of physical, emotional, and spiritual development that can be incredibly influential on the rest of their life. In this course Dr. Sean McGever draws from his years of experience working with youth to lay a solid foundation for others to work with these important age groups. McGever begins by exploring the spectrum of youth in our culture today—from those just entering adolescence in junior high school through college-age young adults. That span covers several development stages, and the course explores the issues they face in each stage, the challenges in communicating to that group, and effective ways to meet those communication challenges.

Upon successful completion you should be able to:
  • State the implications of recognizing that youth are created in the image of God
  • Describe the biological, emotional, and psychological changes that occur during adolescence
  • Describe the ideal of cooperation between parents or guardians and youth ministers or workers in helping youth through the difficult developmental phase of adolescence
  • State and understand the importance of the “rules of thumb” for ministering to youth
  • Identify the elements that should be included in a talk for youth
  • Compare and contrast how different age ranges respond to sermons
  • Describe tips for effectively communicating with each age group
