Join us in forming the young Church.
Ablaze Missions is dedicated to forming the young Church, rethinking youth ministry and striving to reignite a zeal for discipleship within parishes and communities.
“But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring [the] good news!” Romans 10:14-15
Missionaries work as a team in parishes to run youth nights, empower volunteers, lead small groups, run retreats and prayer nights—all for the sake of helping young people grow as disciples of Jesus in His Church.
“The missionary is a sign of God’s love in the world – a love without exclusion or partiality”
Pope St. John Paul II – Mission of the Redeemer 89
Ablaze Missionaries participate in on-going spiritual formation, seeking to remain close to the Father through prayer, the sacraments, weekly staff prayer, Daily Mass, leadership instruction, book studies, and professional youth ministry conferences.
“We cannot understand or carry out the mission unless we refer it to Christ as the one who was sent to evangelize”
Pope St. John Paul II – Mission of the Redeemer 88
Every Ablaze Missionary is loved, cared for, trained, mentored and challenged to be a better Catholic and disciple. Ablaze provides a Holy community to serve alongside, ongoing formation and financial stability.
At Ablaze we seek to follow that example by sending out multiple missionaries to serve together, carrying out ministry, and mobilizing the entire parish to accompany young people in their faith.
Each team is composed of a team lead who will mentor the missionaries and foster an environment where everyone grows in relationship with the Lord and their ability to minister.

At Ablaze, you’re on a team working to transform the church. When youth ministers thrive, the ministry thrives.
Daily team prayer, Mass and Adoration are just some of the ways we ensure God comes first.
From getting to know the Ablaze team, to cheering on the underdogs in a 3-legged race your mission is to make friends and be yourself.
The Ablaze culture is designed around you. Our events, retreats, and daily meetings ensure you’re getting what you need. If you’re not thriving, we’re not doing our job.
We want you to leave Ablaze smarter and closer to God than ever before. We invest in you and your education so don’t worry about being an expert in metaphysics, we’ll take you as you are.
You might be a middle school youth minister bringing kids to Adoration for the very first time. You might see kids go to confession for the first time in years. You’ll be on the front lines of bringing youth to Christ.
You can’t do it alone. We equip you with the knowledge and support to bring donors into mission with you. The next generation of youth depend on it.
Sharing Christ with young people is our primary goal, so you’ll be hosting youth events, planning retreats and sharing the Gospel like never before.
Sometimes you’re just hanging out with youth talking about Star Wars and video games. So much of this is simply loving people where they are.
