What is a Life Teen and Edge Webinar?
We’re committed to serving you in your ministry to teens and middle school youth. How can we stay connected all year long? Life Teen and Edge webinars! Network with our energetic staff as well as youth ministers, Core members, priests and directors of religious education around the world and even internationally. Ask questions you need answered via the webinar chat feature or over the phone as if you were having lunch face-to-face.

Are you staring Edge for the first time or possibly new to Middle School Ministry? Let us help you with this one-hour webinar that walks you through how to implement Edge in your parish. This interactive training will cover all aspects of Edge, including:

Relationships are at the heart of true conversion. In order to bring teens into a relationship with Christ, we must be willing to engage in relationship with them. In it’s simplest form, Relational Ministry is building Christ centered relationships with teenagers by going where they are: school, work, and play. This webinar will share with you the tools and techniques you and your Core Team can use to evangelize and minister to them through relational ministry.
