Because of your support, many teenagers are entering into the process of discipleship
Our first mission territory has been Dowling Catholic High School, in Des Moines, IA. The high school took a leap of faith and hired staff to focus on building discipleship within their high school community. We started training their team 7 months ago and the high school now has 13 discipleship groups up and running.
In the Diocese of Fort Worth, TX, we have been training four parishes and we gave a presentation to all of the youth ministers in the diocese. The entire diocese is moving to a discipleship focused youth ministry model and many of the parishes have already started their first discipleship groups with teenagers.
In December, we offered our first training for Ablaze Ministries which currently has a team of 14 missionaries working in parishes in the Austin, TX Diocese. Ablaze and St. Andrew Missionaries have a strategic partnership which allows St. Andrew Missionaries to accomplish our goal of having missionaries trained for parish evangelization and discipleship.
We also hit several other, milestones in 2017:
- St. Andrew Missionaries was officially launched on November 30, 2016 – the Feast of St. Andrew, apostle.
- We were featured on Catholic Answers Live in June 2017.
- My second book –The Art of Forming Young Disciples – is due for release on March 22, 2018.
- We traveled to 5 states offering training and presentations on discipleship youth ministry.
Please be assured of my prayers and gratitude for your support. I am looking forward to sharing more success stories with you in 2018!
