STA Youth Ministry
HIGH SCHOOL LIFE TEEN AND CONFIRMATION
WELCOME! Dear Potential Youth Core Member,I’m glad that you are interested in serving in our youth ministry! I am always looking for talented ministers to serve in our youth ministry program. Solid ministry is built on relationships between adult staff and teens. Relationships are key to teens feeling loved and accepted so that they can understand the love of God in practical ways. This is when real spiritual growth takes place in a teen’s life.
HOW WE DO THIS:
Our Youth Ministry Program requires a substantial team of volunteers working at all levels – from Core members who lead small groups, Instructors in a Classroom setting, to Life Support who setup environments and serve food. The challenge of our Youth Ministry is to access the wealth and diversity of resources within and around the area so as to provide a meaningful and effective faith formation program for High School teenagers who engage their energy, imagination,curiosity, compassion and playful spirit in an exploration and engagement of our Catholic faith. Thus, the quality of our youth ministry volunteers is very important.
I am looking for men and women who have made a commitment to Christ and a desire to care for teens. With the aid of prayer and consideration, read the enclosed materials. I encourage you to observe one of our youth ministry events before making your decision to start the process. Because I place a great value on this ministry, I place a great value on our volunteers. Once you have completed the Archdiocese of Santa Fe Virtus Training and I have your application, Virtus Certificate, I will schedule an appointment with you to discuss your application. All the information will be kept strictly confidential. In the meantime, please feel free to observe our youth ministry programs.
Youth ministry is a great way to give of your time and serve the Lord. I’m looking forward to meeting with you and spending some time talking about your hopes and desires for ministry. If you have any
need to reach me, please feel free to call.
