Volunteer: High School Ministry

2014-15 St. John Discipleship Groups

Attention, volunteers! In case you missed the changes to our high school program last year, the model we use for formation at the high school level at St. John the Evangelist is a small group discipleship model.

What does this mean?

This means that once things are rolling for the school year, small discipleship groups meet with their core team leader every two weeks for two hours. This requires a signed commitment form from the students, just like any sport/school activity. This gives our ministry an opportunity to better meet the needs of the individual students of our Parish by ministering as Jesus did (James, John and Peter were his closest homeboys).:)Ministry bears much more fruit in this way.

What does this mean for me as a volunteer?

It means we need people who are strong in their faith and willing to serve as witnesses and share their experiences with small groups of high school students who are in the developmental stages of their own faith journeys. You don’t have to be a super-smooth presenter, and you don’t have to have an amazing, come-to-Jesus story to tell…you just have to be open, honest, and willing to invest a little bit of time in the lives of our youth.

Below is a sign-up form to volunteer with the high school youth group. Fill it out and return it to Jen Meitl Conrad or drop it by the Simon Parish Center at 1229 Vermont St. If you have questions, contact Jen at or call/text her at (785) 766-6189. Thank you for your interest!

Volunteers should be 21 years or older. The successful candidates must have a commitment to working with both youth and adults as well as an ability to plan and implement programs within their specific areas. Training and assistance will be provided throughout the time of service!
