Emory University Youth Theological Initiative Summer Academy



With the goal of cultivating public theologians, YTI provides students with an intensive examination of theological issues. Faculty encourage boys and girls to ponder theological questions; explore theological literature (including the Bible); engage, analyze and address global issues from Christian theological perspectives; and experience various ways of worshipping together as an ecumenical group, such as attending services with Christian congregations and other religious communities. Students typically leave the program with more defined educational and vocational plans in theology.
