  1. 1. Refocusing Catholic Youth Ministry

  3. 3. Refocusing Catholic Youth Ministry
  4. 4. 1976
  5. 5. 1976 1997
  6. 6. 1976 1997 2007
  7. 7. Church documents agree that adolescent catechesis seeks to form adolescent Christian disciples.
  8. 8. The GDC designates evangelization as the church's essential mission in the world and situates catechesis as one function within it.
  9. 9. The NDC, published after both RTV and the GDC, acknowledges the role of comprehensive youth ministry in adolescent catechesis, but it does not resolve the confusion.
  10. 10. It may well be time for an alignment of vision for youth ministry.
  11. 11. Refocusing Catholic Youth Ministry •Discipleship
  12. 12. Discipleship We need to provide concrete ways by which the demands, excitement, and adventure of being a disciple of Jesus Christ can be personally experienced by adolescents
  13. 13. Discipleship Young people need to have a true opportunity for exploring what discipleship ultimately involves.
  14. 14. Discipleship The Christian faith is, above all, conversion to Jesus Christ
  15. 15. Discipleship This conversion is the acceptance of a personal relationship with Christ, a sincere adherence to him, and a willingness to conform one’s life to His.
  16. 16. Discipleship Be prepared to put your life on the line in order to enlighten the world with the truth of Christ; to respond with love to hatred and disregard for life; to proclaim the hope of the risen Christ in every corner of the earth.
  17. 17. Discipleship • Are we truly taxing and testing teens’ resources? • Do they have true opportunities to explore what discipleship involves? • Are we (with the Spirit) seeking conversion, relationship with Christ, adherence, and conformity? • Is discipleship “life on the line” stuff?

  25. 25. Refocusing Catholic Youth Ministry •Discipleship • The Big 2: Evangelization and Catechesis • Relationships not Programs
  26. 26. Relationships not Programs A Vision of Youth Ministry did not recommend program models or specific activities, recognizing that the day had passed when one program structure could respond to all the needs of youth.
  27. 27. Relationships not Programs
  28. 28. Relationships not Programs High Tech / High Touch
  29. 29. Relationships not Programs Social Networking
  30. 30. Relationships not Programs Social Networking
  31. 31. Relationships not Programs
  32. 32. Relationships not Programs
  33. 33. Relationships not Programs
  34. 34. Relationships not Programs Effective ministry with adolescents was built on relationships. The central place of the Emmaus story in A Vision of Youth Ministry demonstrated the primacy of relationships and of discovering God within those relationships.

  45. 45. UNCHAINING CONFIRMATION: • We are cultivating a spirit of commencement; it is an outward signs of an inner change of heart. • Every new conversion moment begins in us a new way of being disciples.
