   Vision of  Youth Ministry at Nativity!

At Nativity, our vision for Youth Ministry is rooted in  Renewing the Vision – an inspirational document of the USCCB:

  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, & work of the Catholic faith community
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person
  • To Encourage parents and caring to participate in the faith formation of teens, share their love of Christ and make a difference in a young person’s life.

How do it… with love, pray, patience and using the LIFE TEEN ministry program.

The Well – Youth Ministry Space – A Teen Space

The Well is what we call the dedicated Youth Ministry space.  This room is for youth ministry events, gatherings, and is also our teaching space.

The name comes from the Gospel of John Chapter 4 story of the woman at the well.  Jesus was sent by God to Samaria to wait for the woman who would be his disciple.  He did this by being there for her, for listening to her story, talking with her and bringing her to God.  This is what we are called to do – be present to the teens – and parents – and lead them closer into a relationship with Christ and one another.
