Join us in Sydney, Australia from 4-7 January 2017 for our next biennial conference.
Supporting and developing the professionalisation of youth ministry around the world
The IASYM is focussed 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.
The association produces the Journal of Youth and Theology, published two times a year by Brill publishers.
Members of the association receive discounted subscriptions to print and electronic versions of the Journal of Youth and Theology, and discounted registration to international and regional conferences.
