Recently, I have become extremely frustrated with the lack of young adult ministry in my city, and I know I am not the only one in my city (and in others, perhaps) who is also frustrated. It is not hard to believe that there are others in other cities who share my concerns.
There is no one right way to accomplish it. The Diocese of Green Bay does it on both the parochial and diocesan level (and when a Minnesota Vikings fan praises anything related to the city of Green Bay, you know there is something special occurring). Kidding aside, the parishes of Rochester, Minnesota have banded together to do young adult ministry. There are various parishes across the nation that have their own group.
But, I think the main reason there are so many places where young adult ministry is non-existent is the fact that some do not see the need for it. Young adult ministry is seen as unnecessary. I beg to differ.
Why is it needed?
