Cultivating Virtue in God’s “Brainforest”: Creating Youth Ministry Curriculum with Neurodiversity in Mind

The Institute for Youth Ministry secured a grant from the Fuller Youth Institute to create Christian education curriculum on neurodiversity and faith formation in youth ministry. The curriculum aims to equip leaders to shape congregations in which young people of all neurotypes flourish. The project is part of Fuller Youth Institute’s “Character-Forming Youth Discipleship” project, funded by The John Templeton Foundation.
