OCTOBER 13-15, 2024 // BOERNE, TX


We’ve crafted an entire conference with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish! We’ll be providing you an opportunity to witness first-hand a thriving Life Teen youth ministry program in action. Then we’ll be walking through the essential components for launching or revitalizing youth ministry in your parish. You can expect to receive a systematic, comprehensive introduction to quality youth ministry along with the practical steps to make it happen. And, because youth ministry flows to and from the sacraments, this training won’t just be about the logistics of ministry, but will also provide you an opportunity to renew your own relationship with Christ.


If you’re brand new to youth ministry or brand new to Life Teen or Edge, this conference is for you! And bring your priest, music minister, and anyone else who is or will be a key player in your ministry. If you’re a veteran youth minister, this conference is a great one to send new staff or new core members to so you can rest assured they’ve received systematic, quality training as they begin to serve. You’re guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged into a vast network of support, knowing that you’re not in this alone.
