Summers can be overwhelming for youth ministers – with so many different events offered that bless the teenage soul, how does a leader discern which opportunities are the best “fit” for the teens in their specific youth group? The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.

Life Teen is a Eucharist-centered youth ministry movement within the Catholic Church. Our mission is simple: lead teenagers closer to Christ. The movement of Life Teen has been reaching teenagers, restoring parishes, and reclaiming culture for over 30 years and we believe the Holy Spirit is just getting started.
We need your help to fuel this mission so that we can reach every teen and every parish. 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.
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.
Your contribution to Life Teen will allow us to continue the mission of leading teens closer to Christ, and reach more parishes in more ways than ever before. In the midst of all the world has to offer, nothing will outlast the truth and love of Jesus Christ, and it is our desire to spread the Gospel message to the ends of the Earth. Join us.
