Student Life

Students in the YMI spend Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm in the Teens For Christ office. The mornings are reserved for online studies and in-house classes providing students with the time they need to devote to their studies. Afternoons are devoted to ministry training and personal development.

During the fall and winter, students receive the opportunity to go on two retreats providing time for leisure, bonding, and quiet time. Throughout the school year, there are also frequent events, mini-trips, and occasions to celebrate together. The family atmosphere of the Institute allows for deeper community and support as students grow together.

For students who are looking for housing in the Lima area while in the YMI, we have a network of host families who provide accommodations for students. Rent rates vary depending on the particular family.

Tuition

One of the great benefits of the YMI is the Christian education and training that you can receive at a fraction of the cost of attending a Christian University. The $4,000 annual YMI tuition covers the costs of the in-house classes, training, retreats, Converge, Boot Camp, and other events throughout the year. Additionally, our students receive a discount on tuition from Clarks Summit University.
