The BEST First Youth Ministry Job.

Make a difference in the lives of youth with your new best friends.

This isn't like other
youth ministry jobs.

Other youth ministers work alone at a parish with no team and no guidance. At Ablaze, you’re part of a team working at a parish together. More ideas, more feedback and more great times.

The biggest struggle for youth ministers is burnout, here at Ablaze we keep you cared for, loved and surrounded by a quirky team of Catholics who care about you

๐Ÿ™ Prayer is priority

Daily team prayer, Mass and Adoration are just some of the ways we ensure God comes first.

๐Ÿ™‚ People > numbers

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.

What you will be doing

Youth ministry isn’t free pizza and chubby bunny.
It’s being the person God created you to be.

โšก Thriving

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.

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.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Fundraising

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.

๐ŸŽ Teaching

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.

๐ŸŽฎ Befriending

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.
