The purpose of the Youth Ministry program is to prepare students for effective ministry in middle high, senior high, or college.
Youth Ministry is the attention we give to our young people which enables them to reach their full God created potential, including embracing their gifts and to walk with them in their process of becoming all they can be.
That is, everything our faith community is involved in that promotes both healthy development and faith growth in adolescents.
We work to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person and seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith.
Ponds Youth Ministry seeks to help youth share their gifts, grow in life skills, develop a positive self-image, overcome prejudices, develop respect for differences, serve those in need, and foster social change, participate in the sacraments, develop a personal spirituality and prayer life, apply faith to daily life, and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.
