This September the Catholic Youth Services is excited to be hosting the very first Life Teen Australian Training Conference! Having empowered thousands of youth leaders at similar conferences right across the USA the Life Teen Australia Catholic Youth Ministry Training Conference is coming to Australia in September 2015.

This opportunity will provide a beautiful mix of practical, comprehensive training and spiritual renewal for those working in youth ministry. There will be creative sessions to choose from led by youth leaders from Australia as well as Steve Allgeyer (Life Teen Vice President) and Stephen Lenahan (Life Teen Director of Events) from the USA. Youth leaders will leave this conference knowing the...y are not alone but part of a greater community that is ready to help and support them as they implement dynamic youth ministry that leads young people closer to Christ.

Youth Leaders Formation Course

The Youth Leaders' Formation Course (YLFC) was born out of the vision to raise up and equip a new generation of young people who would be able to offer faithful leadership to other young people, both inside and outside the Church. Since 2007 the YLFC has transformed the hearts and minds of 170 young people from Sydney and around Australia who have returned to their homes renewed and ready to share the Gospel. The YLFC is a completely unique experience and an essential opportunity for those working as youth leaders and those who feel called to be involved in youth ministry.
