The Music Director-Youth Minister Paradigm: Bridging the Gap (SUMMARY DESCRIPTION)
With over a decade of experience working with Life Teen and Youth Programs, Aarom Thompson elucidates a paradigm for creative and satisfying collaboration between the parish's music ministry and youth programs. How does a music director successfully work with youth ministers trained and energized by ministry models driven by Christian radio and worship music?
Aarom will discuss how you can partner with and fill the needs of the 'new youth ministry paradigm,' while providing an authentic Catholic worship experience, and encouraging sound liturgical formation/ participation. He will explore new ways of exciting youth, whatever you ministry background or whatever program you use. The issues of time, vision, theology, talent, vocation and communication will be explored.
This workshop may be customized for Music Director or Youth Director attendees.
