High School Youth Theology Institutes

"Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation."

Nelson Mandela

Where can today’s youth go to explore questions about God, faith and ministry in the world? How can their roots in their own faith communities blossom into the fruits of leadership for the church now and in the future?

FTE partners with the Lilly Endowment on its High School Youth Theology Institutes (HSYTI) initiative to offer spaces for young people to explore questions about their faith, purpose and call to ministry in the world. The institutes within this initiative work with colleges and universities, congregations, denominational offices, service agencies and youth ministry organizations to identify, ignite and cultivate the gifts of future Christian leaders who will impact our communities.

For general information about the initiative, contact HSYTI Coordinator, Jodi L. Porter, at jporter@fteleaders.org or 678.369.6917. To learn more about specific programs, please contact the appropriate institute below.
