Local Church Youth Ministry

What's a Youth Worker?  

  • An adult over 21

  • Member of a Local Church

  • Cares about youth

  • Open to learn and grow in ministry

‘It’s important to remember when you get below the surface of today’s students that they want to grow, want to be invested in; today’s teenagers long for something more. They want a faith that is real, experiential, intellectual, holistic and one that calls them out of the norm and into the movement of Jesus on earth.’ –Brock Morgan

As adult workers with youth, we can be inspired by these words that say a lot about today’s young people. They are searching for a faith that is authentic and life-changing. They want to know that they can make a difference in the lives of others, and that their opinions count.

The call to serve as an adult worker with youth is a noble and critically important ministry. To serve well, we must be fully trained and prepared for the task. As volunteers, we soften our hearts and open our lives to these young believers and seekers as we continue this journey together.
