HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Huntington University graduate student Jennifer Bradbury was honored with the youth ministry student excellence award during the commencement hooding ceremonies on May 18.

“Jen Bradbury’s work throughout her studies was excellent, but her culmination research project about forming a faithful Christology among Evangelical Lutheran Church of America students distinguished her above the rest such that she was the youth ministry leadership program director’s choice for this honor,” said Dave Rahn, director of HU’s M.A. in youth ministry leadership and the vice president and chief ministry officer for YFC/USA ministries.

The Association of Youth Ministry Educators invites participating member institutions to nominate outstanding exemplary students who are graduating from their programs each year for this citation.

Bradbury of Glen Ellyn, Ill., graduated with a Master of Arts degree in youth ministry leadership.
