Our Team aims to share life with young people in such a way that the trinitarian love of God is modeled with our lives and bears fruit.
"With such affection for you, we were determined to share with you not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well, so dearly beloved had you become to us"
1 Thessalonians 2:8
Core Members are passionate individuals who choose to respond to their baptismal call by serving young people. There is no "cookie cutter" or perfect Core Member - only ones who are willing to offer their specific gifts and talents to the next generation. Living a deeply sacramental life, Core Members are essential to our Youth Ministry, as they yoke themselves to teens and journey with them through the trials and triumphs of life and faith.
The most important role of a Core Member is Relational Ministry. Relationships are central to the human heart, and if we are inviting teens into a relationship with Christ, we must be willing to engage with them in a healthy relationship as well...meeting teens where they are and entering into life with them. Jesus incarnate models this for us, and it is to that degree of authentic friendship in which hearts are transformed.
Core Members embrace growth and open themselves up to continual formation as disciples, which includes making sacrifices to ensure young people come to know the love of Christ and his Church. Whether helping plan a retreat, preparing a talk, or coming to a meeting in the middle of the week, our selfless Core Members often are asked to stretch themselves for the sake of others.

"To love a person means: to accept not understanding everything about that person. Being prepared to change and to suffer, to renounce something for them."
