The Life Teen Core Team is a group of adults (21 and up) in the parish who wish to help lead our high school youth closer to Christ through creating welcoming environments, forming an intentional relationship, and journeying with them in their relationship with Christ. We have recognized the importance of ministry not only to teens but also to those guiding them!
The Core Team gives the adult community, especially parents, a broader understanding of the Life Teen program and how it works. At the same time, it develops the adults spiritually and fosters good Christian friendships.
