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.

September 21-23, 2018 // San Antonio, TX
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 all the essential components for launching or revitalizing ministry for middle school or high school youth. And because youth ministry flows to and from the sacraments, this training won't just be about the logistics of ministry. It'll also be about renewing your own relationship with Christ.
We’ve compiled our best training material into one weekend so that you'll receive a systematic, comprehensive introduction to quality youth ministry along with the practical steps to make it happen. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry!
You’ll get to meet our parish coaches in person and network with others in your area and those who are in similar situations to you. 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.

They’ve had an active Life Teen youth ministry program for over 15 years, so they know a thing or two about serving teenagers!
