Max Impact - 11th & 12th Grade Youth Ministry in the UPPER ROOM
Making a Maximum Impact with your faith! This group will be offered one time per month. This is a great way to stay connect when life gets so busy.
MAX Impact is our programming that is open to ALL teens that are in the 11th & 12th graders here at OLR. This ministry providesplace for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. It provides an opportunity to serve those students that are preparing to go off to college or the workforce. Perhaps they will be leaving home for the first time... this ministry shows them concrete reasons for staying connected.
The resources we implement speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of high school youth that is preparing to "leave the nest". It is an opportunity for teens to strengthen their Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church, while asking the tough questions. This ministry is geared toward walking with "Upper Classmen" over a period of time with a given subject
The resources make it easier for "Core Members" to plan out their nights, retreats, and to train a team of adults. The Core Team, is formed to assist in the ministry. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand and that is easy to share your faith with one another. It is called to challenge them as they challenge us with the tough questions!
