What is the Youth Ministry Core Team? Core Team is a group of youth who commit, for at least one year, to be a servant-leader and missionary disciple in youth ministry. Essentially Core Team is a group of youth leading youth to Christ! Core Team has four main aspects: 1. community, 2. ongoing formation, 3. visioning & planning, and 4. leadership development. If you join Core Team, you are committing to being a part of a team, to growing in your personal spiritual life, to live as a Christian witness, to attend our monthly meetings (typically the second Sunday of the month, 9:30am-11:30am. This means you will have to attend either Saturday 5pm Mass or Sunday 8:30am Mass), to attend our summer and winter Core Team Retreats, and to help lead youth ministry activities throughout the year. All committed members of Core Team are edible to serve as Extreme Team leaders for Extreme Faith Camp 2019.
I ask you to pray with the Scripture verse, Matthew 28:18-20: “Then Jesus approached and said to them, ‘All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.’” These are the words that Jesus used to commission His disciples. As many of you know, these are the words that Jesus used to call me to study and serve in youth ministry. I ask you to pray with this verse and the Core Team Job Description and Core Team Covenant and see if the Lord is calling you to serve in this way.
