Youth Ministry Leadership

About

We are always looking for teens and adults to assist in our Youth Ministry programs. Whether you are leading a small group during Confirmation, hanging out during Eden Hang Outs, or attending retreats or other events with us; we are always looking for people to partner with us in growing our ministry.

What is the J.U.I.C.E. Team?

J.U.I.C.E. stands for Join Us In Christ Eternally!! This team is comprised of teens who have been confirmed and young adults who commit to making the Confirmation and Youth Ministry programs the best they can be. This team comes together to plan the retreats for Confirmation as well as being the small group leaders and speakers on retreat. This team meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays of the Month for formation and planning. If you are confirmed and want to give back to the Confirmation and Youth Ministry programs then this team might be for you!

How Can I help

If you are a teen who has been confirmed, then the above J.U.I.C.E. Team is for you!

If you are an adult who feels the call to work with young people, then there are a couple of different things you could do to make our ministry grow.

  1. Pray – You can pray for the teens and our ministry.
  2. You can support us by helping us with single events. Driving to a special event or chaperoning a retreat.
  3. You may choose to help us on a regular basis. You can be an adult helper at our Eden Hang Outs, Youth Nights, or Confirmation Session.
  4. You can support the teens by donating so that teens can attend our events who may need monetary help to attend some of our events.
