Catholic Youth Ministry Mindset

Stop being the youth minister. Become the Director of Youth Ministry.

Stop being the youth minister.
Become the Director of Youth Ministry.

  • Stop working overtime. To survive full-time parish youth ministry, you need an approach to your job that is sustainable. Learn to take control of your calendar and to effectively plan your weeks, months, and years.
  • Build a team of leaders. When you’re the only youth minister, the responsibility is all on you. You need to build a team of leaders, not a team of task-doers. Learn how to give away all your problems and empower a team of leaders, instead of begging for volunteers.
  • Cast a parish-wide vision for youth ministry. There’s no silver bullet, and there’s no perfect program. This course isn’t another curriculum to follow, it’s a mindset that will give you a framework for evaluating the “big picture” of your parish’s efforts to evangelize the youth of your parish boundary.

This course is currently in Beta testing, and is available at an early-bird price of $49. Purchasing this course gives you access to any future upgrades to the course. Once the full course launches in Fall 2019 the price will increase to $149 forever.

Transforming youth ministers into Directors of Youth Ministry.

A New Mindset for Your Role as Youth Minister.

You’re not just a youth advocate, a glorified event planner, or the only person responsible for being “relational” with youth.

You have a heart for bringing teens closer to Christ, but that mission can take a toll on you. You might be tempted to blame the pastor, the lack of support from volunteers and staff, or being overworked and underpaid. The truth is the solution starts with YOU and your MINDSET about what your job and parish youth ministry is really all about.

In this short course you’ll start at ground zero and rebuild a vision for how you fit into God’s mission for your parish as a full-time professional youth minister.

In this course you’ll learn:

  • How you fit into God’s mission for making disciples of all nations.
  • How to share your missionary burden with others in a way that attracts leaders to join your parish’s mission of bringing youth closer to Christ.
  • A framework for evaluating everything your parish is doing to minister to youth.
  • A method of evaluating whether or not your youth ministry is fruitful.
