Empower Core Member Trainings are back! We want to equip youth ministers and core members with the tools and techniques that their ministry needs to not just survive, but to thrive. With a focus on team building along with practical training for the current youth ministry landscape, these trainings are designed to set you up for success.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish! We’ll be walking through the essential components for launching or revitalizing youth ministry. You can expect to receive a systematic, comprehensive introduction to quality youth ministry along with the practical steps to make it happen. And, because youth ministry flows to and from the sacraments, this training won't just be about the logistics of ministry, but will also provide you an opportunity to renew your own relationship with Christ.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

Job Type: Full-Time Position
Location: Parker, CO
The Coordinator of Youth Evangelization + Worship Leader works on the Faith Formation Team and is partnered with the Coordinator of Youth Discipleship. This person is tasked with transitioning and executing our middle school youth ministry. Success in this position depends on the development of a culture of encounter and accompaniment – meaning that this person needs to be able to recruit and train volunteers who are capable of sharing witness and forming relationships with youth. Middle School youth are at an age developmentally where they present a great opportunity to have a first encounter and first commitment to Jesus Christ. We are transitioning out of a model of classroom catechesis and into a more experiential model of youth ministry. The person in this position will develop a blend of opportunities for “encounter” while also building a youth ministry with developmentally appropriate catechesis.
We are hopeful to fill this position with someone who is a capable worship leader. We have a strong desire to add a worship leader to our Faith Formation team and to incorporate opportunities for praise and worship both into our youth ministry and our parish at large. We would like a skilled worship leader for this position, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. Please see the note in the “Final Considerations” for more clarification.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Youth Ministry is a time consuming and challenging ministry. We value your spiritual, emotional, and personal health. We, as a parish, want to invest in you by offering you opportunities for prayer, continuing education, personal retreat and leadership development. You are encouraged to spend one hour of each workday in prayer. The parish will pay for you to take a class through the Augustine Institute or the Denver Biblical School. As a staff, we value teamwork and collaboration. Our experienced Parish Leadership Team mentors the members of their departments to help them be productive while maintaining a healthy balance between ministry and everyday life. We want you to thrive in ministry and we want your gifts and talents to be put to the building of the Kingdom of God.
We are exploring the possibility of making our Sunday evening Mass a “Youth Mass,” however we are not committed to this idea. The person who fills the position would have considerable input into that discernment process.
It is our preference to hire someone who is a capable worship leader for this position, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. Our priority is finding someone to lead evangelization initiatives with middle school youth. Preference will be given to candidates who are capable of leading worship, but please apply if you are only interested in leading the middle school youth ministry. We are seeking the right person and we don’t wish to disqualify capable youth ministry leaders if they are not skilled in worship leading.
We value creativity and new ideas. We have a strong desire to see our Youth Ministry thrive. Youth ministry is a key piece of the puzzle to continue to make Ave Maria a great and beautiful parish. With the support of the Pastor, staff and volunteers, we hope to make this a team effort. You are not alone in this ministry.
