Find Your Leaders

A quick way to find some good young adult leaders in your parish is to take a quick glance at your lectors and eucharistic ministers listing and then cross reference that by age. Highlight anyone in their 20s and 30s and then think about their leadership skills or their potential to become leaders. Invite them to take a leadership role on a young adult steering or planning committee. Ask your parish for a list of the young adults who were married in the past year and follow the same procedure. Then, think of other existing parish ministries. Who are the young adults involved with them? You may find many “hidden gems” already involved with your parish.
