YOUTH MINISTRY WOULDN'T EXIST IF IT WEREN'T FOR VOLUNTEERS.

Life Teen came into existence at Holy Trinity by the hands, energy, and hearts of a group of volunteers.  The same story continues today, and to keep it going week-in and week-out, it requires a team of people who are still willing to give of themselves and their time to help students discover a faith and life they were created to live.  

We have found that students respond well to adults who are genuinely interested in their lives, their humor, their celebrations, and their pains. It is from safe and healthy relationships that we establish a rapport that leads students deeper into a personal relationship with Jesus and His Church. 


want to get involved?

Think you might be interested in being a part of making this happen?  Don't  let the assumption of what it takes to work with students stop you from considering a role in our ministry.  There are lots of ways you can contribute.
