Discipleship for Youth
. . . responding to God’s love in the community by practicing love for God and one another
But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knitted together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.
Youth ministry in the Diocese of California strives to create an environment and community that nurtures young people in their faith, in their spiritual, emotional, and physical health, and in service to the community. Our Diocesan youth events, retreats, and summer camps bring together young people from throughout the diocese and beyond to share a community of the spirit.
We endeavor to lift up, support, and sustain the ministry of those who care for young people by offering resources and training for youth ministers, safe church policies and training for adults who work with minors, a resource center with up-to-date curriculum and teaching tools, and a monthly newsletter Grow Up in Every Way for everyone who ministers with young people in the Diocese of California.
