Resources for Youth Ministers

Youth ministers — full-time and part-time, clergy and lay — engage in the theological work of developing relationships with young people, modeling to them the unconditional love of God through community. Responding to the needs of young people for community development, spiritual formation, and physical and emotional wholeness is no simple task, and the diocese works to support youth ministers in every way possible.
