Core Team is a relational ministry opportunity for adults over 18 years old who are passionate about their faith and feel called to lead high school teens closer to Christ. Responsibilities include participation in Life Teen youth ministry program Sunday afternoons and then ending with Life Teen Mass. We have bi-weekly planning meetings, two retreats, various outside activities, and interaction with teens on their “turf”. Members are blessed with the opportunities to be part of an amazing faith community, grow in relationship with God, and deepen their understanding of the faith. It requires a one-year commitment, 6 or more hours per week. Adult Core members will need to have a background check and Safe Environment training, which are required by the Archdiocese.
Teen Leads are called Disciples of L.I.G.H.T., which means Living In God’s Holy Truth. They are mentored by our adult Core members and given the opportunity to help lead small group discussions, coordinate and plan events or gatherings. They help set up and break down Life Teen meetings. Teen Leads are expected to do 4-5 service projects a year as a group. Teen Leads are involved with our Sunday experience by volunteering as hospitality hosts, ushers, and lectors. There are two mini retreats and one “Life Teen Leadership Conference” that Teen Leads will attend. We also fellowship outside of church by going to various activities such as bowling, movies, dinner, or any other activity the group feels they would like to experience. Being a Teen Lead requires a one-year commitment, 2-3 hours per week. Training is provided.
