Job Description

Description Overview:

St. Gabriel is growing, and we are reorganizing how we do the work in our Youth and Young Adult Ministry (Y&YA) office by creating a new position. The Y&YA Ministry Program Assistant supports the Director and Associate Director of Y&YA Ministry with ministry communications to parents and youth, registration and administrative tasks, and other program support as needed so that teens, young adults and their families can follow Jesus into missionary discipleship.

Intended Outcomes from this role:
• Youth and their families will find support as they explore the best way to grow in their Catholic faith through participation in St. Gabriel’s youth and young adult ministry
• Youth, their parents, and the St. Gabriel community will witness attractive communications that beckon youth more deeply into the call of missionary discipleship and encourage the community to support a young person’s journey of discipleship
• Unnecessary obstacles in the administration of Confirmation Preparation are removed so parents, youth, and program leaders can focus their energies on the missionary discipleship process
• Youth and Young Adults ministry programs are supported so departmental staff can focus more on the people-to-people tasks of ministry

Primary Work:
• Manage registrations for youth ministry offerings and offer supportive assistance for those registering
• Manage administrative tasks relating to Confirmation sacramental preparation and record keeping including communication to youth and parents
• Support in the set-up, supply gathering, administrative, and final preparation tasks of youth and young adult ministry events

o Create content (using graphic templates tools) to build a social media presence that engages youth and young adults in the mission of the church
o Manage and maintain the youth and young adult website
• Collaborate with the Parish Information Specialist to collect, organize and maintain data for youth and young adult participants – helping to maintain the integrity of information for participants
• Assist in the production and publication of videos (including filming, editing and publishing) that are effective for the intended audiences (teens, young adults, parents)
• As administrative task and time management is mastered, grow to assist in the coordination of youth and young adult projects, programs and events where possible
• Any other duties assigned by the Pastor and Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry
