Beefy Levinson: Youth Formationator
Strictly speaking, youth and young adult ministry ought not exist. It is the chief responsibility of the parents and the priest to adequately form young people into intentional disciples of Jesus Christ. For various reasons this has not been working out too well in practice for the last fifty years. The Youth and Young Adult Minister asked if I wished to be on his team and I assented. I'm not looking forward to those occasions when we have to think of social events or games or whatever; I never liked those even when I was a youth. But if you're looking for someone to put the fear of God into those little... darlings, then I'm your man. Just call me the Ron Swanson of parish life.
