Summers can be overwhelming for youth ministers – with so many different events offered that bless the teenage soul, how does a leader discern which opportunities are the best “fit” for the teens in their specific youth group? The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.
