MORE than 50 leaders and teams involved in youth ministry in Brisbane archdiocese are expected to gather for a Vision Youth Leadership Breakfast on February 11.
The breakfast at Riverglenn Conference Centre, Indooroopilly from 8am-10am, will be the first event for the year for Emmanuel Youth Outreach (EYO), and will focus on growing young leaders in the Church.
It is open to youth leaders, leadership teams, campus ministers and anyone involved in ministry to young people.
Vision Breakfast co-ordinator Luke Plant said it was an exciting way to start the year in youth ministry.
“We were very pleased with the response to the first leadership breakfast last year, and so we’re excited for the four breakfasts we have set for this year, starting with this first one in February,” Luke said.
He said he believed one of the benefits of events such as this was it connected youth leaders and built strong relationships between leaders and ministries.
“There is so much potential in the young people of our Church, but the ministry is not always easy.
“The whole vision is about supporting each other in pursuing the needs of youth ministry, and building a positive Church environment for young people,” he said.
Chairman of the National Evangelising Teams (NET Ministries) board of directors, Robert Falzon, will be the keynote speaker at the breakfast.
Mr Falzon, who is also co-founder of MenALIVE, a Catholic men’s movement formed in Brisbane in 2004 and an award-winning businessman, has been a leader in various Church ministries since his youth.
