Youth

Our Theology of Youth Ministry

  • Youth contribute and serve in all the work and ministry of the church – this is our foundational understanding of youth ministry - that every ministry includes young people.
  • You don't have to be a member of St. Mark's, or any church to take part in youth group - you just have to come with a heart and mind willing to serve, and learn, and share
  • Youth ministry is relational - it is about showing up and being fully present
  • Confirmation is a rite of passage into the community, not out of it
  • Youth will speak in the language of faith, if that is how we speak to them
