Ablaze Full-- Time
Missions

Join us in forming the young Church.

This isn't a job.
This is a mission-field.

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

Outreach

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

Formation

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

Community

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.

Jesus sent his disciples out two by two.

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.
