With very little prompting, middle school youth know how to quickly amplify any situation they are in – whether it’s the volume at which they speak or the way they react to a situation. in the life of most middle school youth, this is a time when everything seems amplified – friendships, desire to be autonomous, school, sports, etc. that is why we are introducing – Amplify.
This new resource contains some great new additions for you, your core team, and even for your youth. First, we want to include articles and blogs about middle school youth culture, development, and other relevant going-ons in the middle school world. Hear from other youth ministers about their ministry and see what is happening in the wonderful world of Edge and Life Teen. Which, by the way, if you haven’t yet visited edgeyouthministry.com, please take some time and do so.
Amplify is a supplement to the edge Semester Planning Guide that you receive. in the Semester Planning Guide, we provide a systematic approach to catechesis with middle school youth. use the Semester Planning Guide to provide the majority of your Edge Nights. However, we also recommend that you offer Issue and Social Nights for your youth. that is where Amplify comes in. In this little magazine, you will find the issue and social nights for your ministry. For more Edge Nights, be sure to visit catholicyouthministry.com/download.
Share the articles with your Core Team so that they are able to continue to grow in their love of middle school youth ministry. the more that your core team knows, the better they are able to serve and minister to the youth in your group. Take time for core team development throughout the semester – and let us know if there are topics you would like to see covered here.
We pray that this new Amplify resource, as well as our other edge resources serves you well. through the use of these dynamic edge nights and transformational retreats, may the youth you serve, their families, and your parish community comes to know the love of Jesus in a deep and intimate way.
If you have any questions, feedback, or suggestions please contact me at 404-252-8815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
be assured of our prayers for you and your ministry!
