WE'RE EXCITED THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE WITH US IN STUDENT MINISTRY!!
Knowing Jesus is one of the best parts of life and we hope that many students will have the opportunity to meet Him through this ministry. La Salle student ministry exists to see students encounter Jesus and become contagious lifelong followers of Him.
The quality of character in each of our youth leaders is extremely important to us. We emphasize that each of our leaders must have a clear love for Jesus, high level of integrity, and a heart for students.
We hope that this page will assist you in getting to know this ministry and play a role in helping you discern your involvement.
As always, my role is to support you on this journey. Please feel free to reach out (call/text/email/drop in) if you have any questions or would like to discuss any part of this process.
May God guide you and bless you,
Pastor to Students
Review the commitment
Serving as a youth leader can be very rewarding! Many youth leaders describe the joy they experience when they serve students and witness the power of God on a regular basis. The joy we experience in this ministry doesn't come without sacrifice. For this reason, it's important to start your discerning journey by counting the cost.
We know that being a youth leader takes time and energy. Each member of our team sacrifices other important parts of life to have the opportunity to serve on this team. Being a youth leader isn't because we have extra time to give, it comes by making Christian service a priority in our schedules. Here is a short outline on the time commitment expected:
JumpOut Leader (our grade 7-8 program)
Each Wednesday evening, September to May
Sr. Youth Leader (our grade 9-12 program)
Each Friday evening, September to May
Review the covenant
As youth leaders, our lives are constantly under the microscope. In order to keep the integrity of this ministry and the witness of Jesus from not being hindered, we must live our lives to a higher standard.
While we are not looking for legalistic perfection in every area of life, we expect a trajectory toward integrity and a willing attitude of repentance in every area of life.
