Outreach Is a Ministry Opportunity

Jessica Coblentz evaluates how utilizing young adults in outreach can also be a ministry opportunity:

This is a chance to affirm the talents that young adults have to offer your parish. In addition to having important input about your outreach strategy, your young adults may have expertise in the communication tools you need for executing this strategy. Don’t know how to create that catchy looking graphic that your outreach plan requires? Ask a tech-savvy young adult to teach you how to navigate the necessary software. This will utilize and recognize the gifts of young adults at your parish and is another form of outreach and ministry; it sends the message that young adults are valued. They will want to belong to communities that need and affirm their gifts.
