Youth Ministry (YM) Track

In cooperation with Life Teen, this track offers an efficient and in-depth two-part series of workshops providing thorough formation for youth ministers, including presentations that are practical, academic, theological, and spiritual.  The most important factor in successfully evangelizing and discipling adolescents is the human one:  the authentic witness and genuine love of those willing to invest in the spiritual growth of younger souls.  This track helps youth ministers to impact families, who bear the primarily formative responsibility, and to walk alongside adolescents in the Spirit’s power, with pastoral prudence, doctrinal confidence, and a generous life witness.

We recommend to take these courses in the order they appear, although it is not required to do so.
