The Children youth and family program invites students to work on a thesis project during their capstone class. These projects explore the cutting edge ideas in children, youth, and family ministry.
The CYF prize is given annually to two students who demonstrate excellence in reflecting theologically, culturally, and pragmatically on the practice of children, youth, young adult, or family ministries. The prize is awarded in connection to an 18 to 22 page thesis paper.
