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.

The full-time missionary is responsible for evangelizing & discipling middle and high school teens within a Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Full-time missionaries will work a flexible schedule of 35-40 hours a week. They will serve alongside a missionary team, led by a lead missionary, to fulfill the vision in forming teens through 1-on-1 discipleship, youth group, bible studies, retreats, and other ways the team discerns to serve that particular mission.

We envision lives, and indeed churches, renewed through people worshiping God with their whole lives through knowing, loving and serving God in the ordinary and extraordinary. We pursue this vision by sending missionaries to the underserved communities in the church to work with their junior high and high school youth, and developing relationships and trust with their families and the greater parish community. Our aim is to remain steadfast in our presence and show that life in Christ is worth living. At their best, these parishes are realizations of the whole of Adore’s mission.
Our goal for our missionaries is to create a sustainable lifestyle and to give them the freedom to serve with their gifts and passion. We strive to build an environment and culture that allows people to begin their journey in ministry or continue in it sustainably for the long term. We support our missionaries so that they can thrive mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially whether single, married, just out of college, discerning religious life, or even if you have a house full of kids.
