Ablaze Full-- Time

Join us in transforming the church one youth at a time

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

Ablaze Missions is dedicated to transforming the Church through its mission to youth and striving to reignite a zeal for discipleship and intentional accompaniment 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 to radically serve the parish and boldly do outreach to youth in the community—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.

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 parishes and communities to accompany young people in their faith

Each team will be led by a Mission Multiplier, who will empower missionaries to “Go Forth” in the parish and community, proclaiming the Gospel and inviting youth into a deeper relationship with Christ.
