Our Mission

Diocesan Children, Youth, and Family Ministry is called by the Spirit to create and uphold authentic and transformative experiences in faith for youth, young adults and those who minister to and with them. We equip them for passionate leadership, ministry and advocacy; empower them in their response to God's call and in faith-based decision making; nurture their spiritual gifts; and provide opportunities for them to explore their relationship with God through intentional safe communities, creative and engaging worship, Christ-centred leadership development and relationship-based programming, rooted in the Anglican tradition.

We honour and uphold volunteers and staff in youth ministry at the parish and diocesan level; respecting their call to ministry by providing continuing education, support, recognition, and resources, and by encouraging them in faithful risk taking. In our quest for excellence in ministry, participants, volunteers, staff and parents regularly provide feedback about programs, resources and goals which is integrated into our continuously developing ministry.
