Youth Leadership Team

Our youth and their leaders have developed core values of ministry, ministry guidelines, a vision and overview, training opportunities, and an opening to discernment through prayer toward a God-centered, inclusive, dynamic youth ministry.  This ministry includes Sunday morning programs, mission and pilgrimage trips, and worship and service opportunities.  Youth are involved in leadership roles in the parish, including a position on the Vestry and inclusion on the leadership team for the Youth Mission trip.

Empowering our Youth to Lead

The youth are empowered to lead and help create and guide their ministry.  With support and guidance from advisors, clergy, and staff, a group of youth leaders works together to help plan and execute this ministry model.  The Youth Committee is made up of adult advisors with the chairs of the youth leadership as members.  This committee helps to keep the vision of the youth ministry and advises the Youth Leadership Team. The Youth Leadership Team is comprised of youth from each age level and adult advisors who work closely with them.
