Ablaze Ministries

So let us tell you a little bit about ourselves…


360° Approach to Ministry

Ablaze Ministries exists to fill a need that is not being met. We provide ministry from a 360° approach by ministering to the youth, parents, and youth ministers. These three main functions of our model have developed into our 3 ministries: Ablaze Youth, Ablaze Families, and ProjectYM.

our Ministries

Ablaze Youth exists to provide consistent, high quality youth ministry to parishes of all sizes. Parishes hire and entrust their youth ministry programs to Ablaze, who find young enthusiastic youth ministers for these parishes. Ablaze trains and supervises their youth ministers as they provide youth ministry in the parish. Ablaze believes that ministry should be done in teams, both for the health of the minister and to the benefit of the whole community. At every level within Ablaze, the individual is being poured into spiritually, trained to be a better minister, and is constantly growing within the community.


Ablaze Families exists because being a parent is hard. However, being a parent and leading your children in your faith, while also trying to grow your own faith in a world that disparages both, is even more difficult. Ablaze Families is a community and resource for parents that want to help their kids fall more in love with Jesus while growing in the faith themselves. Ablaze Families seeks to provide tools and resources to dive deeper in faith and a love of Christ in both parents and their children. Sainthood starts at home, so let’s make some saints!

ProjetYM exists to serve those in ministry because we known it is difficult and that you want to focus on bringing Christ to youth. The ProjectYM team provides resources, community, engaging games and has served 20,000+ teens through ProjectYM Live. ProjectYM offers training, broadcasts, courses and so much more because youth ministers should not feel like they are doing it alone. ProjectYM seeks to serve ministry workers everywhere so they can focus on bringing Jesus to youth!
