Life Teen’s Catholic Youth Ministry Training Convention has become America’s premier event for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. Why? Maybe it’s because we are different. We believe in practical, comprehensive youth ministry training. But we don’t think that’s enough. That’s why we incorporate elements of a spiritual retreat into the training convention. Because youth ministry isn’t about what you know, it’s Who you know.
Experience Real Community
The Catholic Youth Ministry Training Convention provides a beautiful mix of practical, comprehensive training and spiritual renewal. There will be over 60 creative sessions to choose from, led by some of the best youth leaders around. Daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Reconciliation, praise and worship, and prayer time will be incorporated throughout the convention. By the end, youth leaders will leave knowing they are not alone, but a part of a greater community that is ready to help and support them.
Training for Everyone
From humble beginnings many years ago, the Catholic Youth Ministry Training Convention has grown and evolved over the years, just as the Life Teen movement has been strengthened through God’s guidance. However, our charge remains the same: equip adults to lead teens closer to Christ. So whether you are a priest, a high school youth minister, a middle school youth minister, a DRE, a core member, campus minister, or an interested parent, we are ready to serve and train you.
