Youth Director

A church youth director is often responsible for developing and organizing programs for kids and young adults that are designed to aid in their spiritual development. These individuals may create activity schedules, offer counseling for troubled youth and work with other parties to organize events.

Church Administrator

Responsible for running their church’s daily operations, the role of a church administrator is to ensure that income and contributions are expended efficiently.

About College of Theology

Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
