The only Christian youth work degree with JNC professional recognition on the island of Ireland will be available from September.
Moorlands College and Youth Link: NI, the inter-church youth organisation for Northern Ireland, will offer a BA (Hons) course in Applied Theology (Youth and Community Work) with JNC at the centre.
‘We’re delighted that Youth Link will work with us in a new centre called Moorlands NI @ Youth Link,’ said Revd Dr David Hilborn, principal of Moorlands College. ‘Their vision, mission and ethos is entirely compatible with Moorlands which has been equipping Christians for ministry among young people, children and others for many decades. The prospect of extending that work is very exciting. Youth Link’s grass-roots knowledge of the Christian context in Northern Ireland and its wider reach and infrastructure mean that students pursuing this new Moorlands BA programme will be excellently equipped for a range of ministries among young people and communities within and beyond the church.’
Since 1948, Moorlands College, part of the Study Zone at CRE Midlands, has given Christians the knowledge and skills they need to impact the church and wider world. It offers courses in applied theology at BA (Hons) and MA level, including short courses and events. Their courses are about applied theology, designed to give students a biblical and theological foundation on which to build their life and ministry.
