Young Adult Ministry Basics

Leadership Team

Most young adult ministry in parishes is led by young adult volunteers. The Office for Young Adult & Campus Ministry strongly suggests that young adult ministry be led by a Leadership Team. Here are some key roles to consider when forming your leadership team. Not every ministry will have all of these roles filled. When starting a new ministry, it is best to start at the top of this list and then continue to build the team from there.
