Youth & Young Adult Catechesis: Forming Peer Leaders
When we address the topic of peer leadership in youth ministry, the conversation can be all over the board. Some use the term to speak of peer leadership roles, like older teens helping with junior high or the Confirmation program. Others refer to the actual formation of the teens, and still others refer to service projects and empowering teens for social justice. It will be helpful in this discussion to give some definition to what we are actually talking about. To do that, I’d like to look at the overall process of evangelization.
