The Parish Youth Minister: Going From Doing to Empowering

  • Ela Milewska, Archdiocese of New York

Youth ministry is the work of the whole parish and not just one or a few people. This is a good idea theory but is hard in practice, especially when the community looks to you as THE youth minister. This workshop will address real strategies to move from being the primary minister to young people to the facilitator of a community of ministers.
