The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
A core mission of Life Teen is to equip parishes to do the hard work, the ongoing day-to-day ministry within the lives of teenagers. Supporting parishes often means meeting you in your needs, questions, and struggles with the hope of creating solutions, sharing inspiration, and celebrating this common mission. One of the premier ways we seek to accomplish this is through the Catholic Youth Ministry Convention.
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 Catholic Teen Bible contains supplementary material to help people understand and navigate Sacred Scripture. The Word of God exists to convict hearts and draw people into the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Edge helps middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ.
Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
When the Holy Spirit breathed these words through the pen of St. John, we were given more than a theological truth … we were entrusted with a mission. In the beginning, God commanded “let there be light” and, ever since, an epic battle has been waged between light and darkness.
Time and time again, across human history, the darkness has encroached and — at times — even enveloped the light but has never been able to overcome it. The light of Christ cannot be stifled, trampled, suffocated, or silenced.
From generation to generation, it shines on through valiant men and women who have offered their lives to share Christ’s light into the surrounding cultures of darkness. These souls move forward in humble boldness, receiving the faith that was handed to them and courageously passing it onto the next generation.
We at Life Teen view this process of handing on the faith as our primary mission. How do we communicate the timeless truth of the Gospel in timely, relevant new ways? How do we meet modern teenagers where they are and walk them into a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church? How do we help those entrusted with much to maximize their impact not only on the Church of today but the Church of tomorrow?
Through our Annual Appeal, we are asking those who know and love Christ and their Catholic faith to share the light, once again. To pass on what has been entrusted to them to the next generation.
We are inviting parents and grandparents, core members and youth ministers, priests and local leaders to let their lives shine brightly — bearing witness through talent and treasure — that the faith must be handed on and programs put in place that ensure young hearts will encounter Jesus Christ.
Isaiah once prophesied, “I will not keep silent … I will not rest until her vindication goes forth as brightness and her salvation as a burning torch” (Isaiah 62:1). At Life Teen, we view this as our ongoing mission. When a soul truly encounters Christ, it changes everything. We will not be silent. We will not rest. We are on a mission to lead all teens closer to Christ … to pass on the torch of faith entrusted to us, and we invite you to come alongside us as we do just that.
In many ways, teens today are more receptive to the Gospel than ever. They crave authenticity and truth in a world of marketing and identity crafting – but they don’t know where to find it. Life Teen works to reach teens where they are – at school, on sports fields, or on Instagram. We engage them through diverse events targeted to resonate with their lives. We strive to ensure that each young person is seen and heard for who they are, and we walk alongside them as they experience life, day in and day out. And as we walk with them, we walk them to the table of the Altar. We walk them into the arms of Jesus.
Parishes across our nation are dwindling, and pews are left empty. Communities are praying for vocations each week, praying for attendance, but steadily losing hope that anything will change. Life Teen knows that there is hope for change – for a return to vitality. Youth ministry is the hope of struggling parishes. Life Teen, with your help, will reach and restore every parish no matter the size, location, or budget by equipping them with all they need for effective youth ministry. As we come alongside parishes, we provide training, materials, and support. Through this, we see more holy marriages, more vocations, and more thriving, active parishes across the US and around the world.
The content of Jesus’ teaching hasn’t changed for 2,000 years, but our language and cultural context has. Life Teen is dedicated to communicating the timeless truth of the Gospel in a culturally relevant way, helping teens engage with Scripture and the faith in a way they can understand and apply to their lives. We engage with, navigate, and when necessary, confront culture where the conversations are taking place: online, through media, and in-person. And as we do so, rather than allowing our youth to be buffeted about by the winds of a fickle culture, we equip and empower them to stand firm. Now, when they take their place in their parishes, schools, and on the sports field, they are ready to reclaim culture.
We need your help to fuel this mission so we can reach every teen. We humbly invite you to partner with us as we raise up a generation of young people to live for Jesus and His Church. We can’t do it without you. Join us.
