Supervisor/Manager: Youth Minister and Director of Youth Ministry
We are a team of missionaries that provide Catholic youth ministry. Ablaze Youth Ministers are young adults on fire in their faith with a passion for drawing youth to Christ. They foster collaboration and support with those working alongside them, truly serving one another as team members. Each Youth Minister is dedicated to serving a specific parish community, while learning valuable ministerial and professional experience from their Director of Youth Ministries at Ablaze. We believe that ministry done in community will create an environment for the minister to thrive. When the youth minister thrives, the ministry will thrive.
The mission of Ablaze Ministries is to implement the US Bishops’ vision of comprehensive youth ministry by engaging, nurturing, and empowering discipleship in young people, ministers and volunteers, as well as within families.
For the youth: Ablaze Ministries enables schools and parishes of all sizes to sustain professional, cost-effective, and enthusiastic ministry rooted in prayer, fellowship, and formation. Our ministry enables collaboration of community parishes, highlighting the true connectedness of the universal Church.
For the ministers: Ablaze Ministries provides youth ministers with spiritual formation, professional development, and theological training. Our team of missionaries work together in community, sharing each other’s gifts and holding each other accountable to meet the needs and the call of the Catholic Church.
