The Parish Success Specialist is a key position that focuses on retaining and supporting current Life Teen, Edge, and Purpose subscriber parishes through empowering and training a team of Area Contacts to lead, minister, and build community among youth ministers. Our new Parish Success Specialist will empower parishes to be successful in their efforts to lead teenagers closer to Christ by diving into data to assess opportunity and risk management for parishes, and creatively engage and support youth leaders in sustainable ministry growth planning.
The Parish Services division is a group of disciples that are passionate about leading teens closer to Christ through exceptional parish support through written and digital resources, direct contact and coaching, and a continued relationship building with parishes. We recognize that this comes with great affirmation but also great spiritual attack, criticism, and sometimes frustration. We support each other in prayer through our victories and help each other when we fall. We strive for the best because the Gospel deserves it.
Our mission is to empower passionate Catholics to become bold and authentic evangelists who transform their parish, community, and culture. We live that mission every day through a culture that is authentic, affirming, faithful to our vocational call to holiness, joyful, charitable, centered in a Eucharistic-spirituality, and evangelistic.
The individual that is going to succeed as Parish Success Specialist is self-motivated, collaborative, and joyful. Our new Parish Success Specialist is excited at the prospect of building relationships with our Area Contact team and parish leaders to assist in creating sustainable youth ministry that empowers parishes to lead young people closer to Christ.
