Coordinator of Discipleship for Middle School Youth and Confirmation

St. John the Baptist in New Brighton, MN is looking for Coordinator of Discipleship for Youth who is a missionary disciple who loves Jesus and the Catholic Church. A passion to share this love with middle school youth is a must. This person would ideally desire to build upon the great foundation of discipleship-focused youth ministry already established in the parish and be willing to use Lifeteen’s Edge for middle school ministries. This person would need to love the high energy of middle school youth and the creativity needed to meet their personal and spiritual needs. It is necessary for this person to have knowledge and experience in theology and ministry with the ability to draw deeper the teens already in love with the Lord and outreach and evangelize those less engaged. Responsibilities include Faith Formation, School Campus Ministry, and 9th Grade Confirmation preparation.

St. John the Baptist is a flourishing suburban parish that strives to live their mission statement in every area of the parish. We Bear witness to Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Go. Make. Teach as we foster our core values of reliance on prayer, willingness to grow, and a generous spirit. St. John’s is known for living and praying liturgy well and many parishioners fill timeslots in our Cenacle Perpetual Adoration Chapel. We offer vast and diverse formation opportunities for all ages in order to help people grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with Christ. A longstanding charism of St. John’s has been a spirit of generosity. We willingly serve those in poverty both physically and spiritually.

We have 2400 households and 300+ students enrolled in our Catholic School. Parish leadership understands the essential work of youth ministry and supports it with space, time, and resources. For the past three years we have been blessed to have a NET Ministries discipleship team minister alongside our current Coordinator of Discipleship. The three teams have invested in cared for our youth. This investment has helped ignite our youth program by establishing a good structure for youth group and discipleship small groups. One of our anchor events in our overall youth program is Catholic Youth Summer Camp, formerly known as Extreme Faith Camp.
