The mission of Ablaze Ministries is to implement the US Bishops’ vision of comprehensive youth ministry, by engaging, nurturing, and empowering discipleship in young people, ministers and volunteers, as well as within families.
Ablaze Ministries is a youth organization, geared toward bringing youth, and in turn families, to Christ through discipleship and with the aid of its programs and events—all of which uphold the Catholic teachings to enhance each student’s relationship with, and knowledge of, Christ. Ablaze provides youth ministry to both middle school students and high school students.
My job title with Ablaze is the Confirmation Coordinator. The Confirmation Coordinator is responsible for creating and organizing all Confirmation paperwork—registration forms, attendance, parent letters, retreat registration, Baptism certificates, saint essays, sponsor forms, eligibility paperwork, and service formation logs, as well as preparing 6-12 weeks of Confirmation preparation classes and the Confirmation retreat, and implementing the teachings required by the Diocese into each class. The Confirmation Coordinator should be someone with organizational, time-management, and communication skills, willing to uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church.
