Youth Ministry Academy (YMA) is a ministry of Nazarene Youth International. It exists to resource, train, and connect youth workers around the world so they are better prepared to serve the church and the youth in their community.

Through Youth Ministry Academy you will have access to training materials and teaching resources prepared by youth workers around the world, webinars presented by experienced church leaders, an online forum to exchange youth ministry ideas on a global level, and much more! Together we are creating a global network of learning among Nazarene youth workers. You may be a lay leader, an NYI president, a youth pastor, volunteer, or youth coordinator; whatever your role, we are grateful for your investment in the lives of youth and we invite you to be a part of this community to learn from each other and to walk together in ministry.

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17).
