Please note that YouthLeader is for high school youth that have completed 9th grade (and have never participated in YouthLeader) & their adult leaders.
Each year, the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, in partnership with the Center for Ministry Development invites parishes to send teams of high school leaders and adults to a week-long leadership training event.
YouthLeader is a team approach to Christian leadership formation for youth and adult leaders, which integrates Christian spirituality and ministry skills. This process includes a five-day conference that will prepare youth to be leaders in various ministries and form youth to bring their Christian values to their leadership roles.
Topics covered during the week include:
Principle Centered Leadership
Proactive Leadership Following Jesus
The Young Church of Today
Win/Win Group Facilitation
Win/Win Decision Making
Plan to Serve! – Planning Skills
Mission and Spirit
