Having a youth ministry in the parish requires some degree of management skill to maintain. Below are some resources for managing a comprehensive youth ministry strategy in your parish.
Vision - Having a clear vision for what you want to accomplish is key for an effective youth ministry in your parish. Once a clear vision is identified, you can build support for the idea with the pastor and key leaders in the parish.
Resources - Another aspect of managing youth ministry is to know what your resources are. Having a comprehensive list of tools that are available and how to utilize them will be helpful. Resources can include anything from facilities that are available for use to sponsors who are willing to contribute program supplies for activities.
