All Youth Workers are invited to attend the Empower Youth Ministry Training, sponsored by Life Teen, on August 25, 2018, at Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Glen Allen, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

Empower Core Member Trainings are a call to arms. We want to equip youth ministers and core members with the tools and techniques that their ministry needs to not just survive, but to thrive. From relational ministry to understanding teen culture & development to tackling the tough topics, we’re here to set you up for success. Our goal remains simple: to help parishes lead teens closer to Christ.

Registration and payment is handled directly through Life Teen.
