The International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry is a network of people from all over the world involved in professional youth ministry research. To further the academic study and research of youth ministry IASYM organizes conferences (both regional and international) and publishes The Journal of Youth and Theology (JYT).
The International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry
Join the conversation on Youth Ministry research across the globe and different Christian denominations.
The International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry is focused on furthering the academic study and research of youth and youth ministry, the formal teaching and training of youth ministry (at universities, seminaries, denominations, para-church organisations, local ministries, or wherever else it may occur), and on the growth and development of youth ministry as a recognised profession.
Our goal is to raise the proﬁle of youth ministry as a calling, career and/or professional enterprise, and to encourage the reﬂection on youth ministry as an academic discipline that will support youth ministry at this level.
Latest issue of Journal of Youth and Theology
Full IASYM members can read the journal online. JYT is published in May and November.
Dear IASYM Members: I know that many of you have been eagerly awaiting all year for the printed version of the Journal of Youth and Theology. I have spoken with the editors at Brill and we are assured that the printed versions of both the spring and fall issues will be going out soon, but likely after the Christmas holidays. Brill has had issues with their distributor, but this is soon to be resolved. Thank you for your patience! As always, dues paying members have direct access to the journal online through our website, and that includes Advance articles that have been approved for publication but not yet included in the printed issues. ~ Elizabeth Corrie, editor-in-chief, Journal of Youth and Theology
