What is Life Teen?
Life Teen is a movement within the Roman Catholic Church. Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
Saint Joseph Life Teen welcomes all high school teens in 9th through 12th grade. This relational ministry program provides teens a safe environment to experience Christ – spiritually, emotionally, and educationally. This learning approach teaches students and supports parents by fostering spiritual growth, promoting discipleship, and drawing youth into the life of the church. To join, receive updates and reminders, or aska question drop and email to Scott Link.
In every effort initiated by Youth Ministry at Saint Joseph, we hope to:
- Grow disciples of Jesus Christ by fostering and engaging the individual growth (spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally) of each young person so they can embrace Jesus Christ and a life in the community that He founded: the Catholic Church.
- Teach our young people spiritual tools through formation, fellowship, the sacramental life of the Church, and outreach that will help them deepen their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and guide them to seek Him in their everyday lives in order to be disciples in the modern world.
- Create a culture in which young people can thrive and become servant leaders of Jesus Christ in our parish community, their families, and social lives, not simply at Youth Ministry gatherings.
The heart of a youth ministry program is not workbooks, but people. It is through these people that the love of Christ is embodied, and a young person comes to know of God’s love. At Saint Joseph, these are our Core members, who are adult men and women giving the greatest gift of all – God. If you want to learn how you can get involved with Core Team, contact Scott Link.
