Youth Ministry Formation
Ministry Formation provides the basic theological understanding, spiritual formation, and methodology necessary for those who are appointed by their pastors to hand on the faith to young people in both catechetical and youth ministry settings. Training of youth ministry coordinators and team members (servers, core team, etc.) is necessary to ensure that the faith is handed on in its integrity and in a manner that responds to the needs, cultures, and other special characteristics of those in their care.
The Ministry Formation Program has two levels:
- Level One provides you with opportunities for growth as a person of faith; effective teaching/facilitating skills; and a plan for your ongoing training and developing a spiritual life.
- Level Two is divided into two tracks:
- Catechists – deepens the training by focusing on essential areas of theological training, such as scripture, the Creed, and morality for catechists.
- Youth Minister Team Member – To Be Announced
