OFFICE OF YOUTH MINISTRY
A comprehensive approach serving youth, pastoral leaders, and parishes in the
Diocese of Jefferson City
Who we are
The Office of Youth Ministry strives to empower young people and those who minister to them to live as disciples of Jesus in the Church and world.
Our approach is comprehensive, understanding that youth ministry works best when the entire parish is involved. Using the framework outlined in the 1997 document, Renewing the Vision, the Office of Youth Ministry collaborates with parish leaders to draw youth into a deeper relationship with Jesus, and fuller participation in the life, mission, and ministry of the Church. By supporting parishes in the ministry of welcoming, engaging, and forming youth, and by providing effective resources to adult Youth Leaders, we hope to create communities where needs are met, people are supported, families are strengthened, and Christ is served.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions, inquiries, or assistance. We are happy to help.
