Community

We believe that ministry done in community will create an environment for the minister to thrive. At Ablaze, we live every part of our mission in community. No matter what parish team you are on, you will never be alone. From youth nights to retreats, you will always have a community around you. Not only that but we begin everyday in prayer together as a staff!  

Formation

Ablaze is committed to continuing your spiritual and theological formation. Every missionary is required to attend the St. John Bosco Conference hosted by Franciscan University of Steubenville as well as other professional youth ministry conferences and trainings throughout the year. Every missionary meets with their supervisor regularly for guidance, training and accountability within their program. Ablaze Ministries’ theological formation meets the Diocese of Austin’s requirements for Catechist Level 1 Certification. 

Missionary Support

All of the jobs below are considered missionary roles. Ablaze Missionaries are individuals called to serve the Church by participating in the mission to “make disciples of all nations,” entrusted to us by our Savior to the Apostles in Matthew 28:19. Because of this radical connection to the mission of the Church, missionaries of Ablaze are dependent on raising their own salary while supporting their ministry. This allows our missionaries to invite others into their mission and be financially sustained.

Does Fundraising sound Scary?

Some of our missionaries have thought that too. Check out these articles written by our staff about their experiences:

We also want to kick some myths about fundraising to the curb:

  • Myth: Fundraising is begging
  • Myth: People won’t support me being a missionary
  • Myth: Fundrasining is unprofessional
  • Myth: I’m going to be poor
  • Myth: This is impossible
