Jessica Newell, Youth Minister – Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn
Lumen Christi Catholic College hosted its first LEAD Youth Ministry Team Training, run by Nathan Galea, Huw Warmenhoven, Eileen Reckord and myself.
This was my first LEAD event I had ever been a part of! Overall I felt the day was very inspirational for the students and for myself and I learnt more things that I could implement into my Youth Ministry. This opportunity was offered to the senior leadership team at Lumen Christi, providing direction in their roles at the school after this time of isolation.
Huw Warmenhoven commented on the training, saying that “it is exciting to see the emerging Youth Ministry Team at Lumen Christi bring active faith and service together as they seek to bring the light of Christ into their school community and beyond.”
Throughout the training the message that was heavily emphasised was “what are your gifts that you can bring to your role” & “how you don’t have to have a badge to be a leader”. Coming away from the training a lot of students have had nothing but positive comments about the whole conference.
