Most Effective Formal Ministry for Adoscents is Good Liturgy
If your parish has more than 12 teens,
you can't expect one person to minister

of the Word
Discipleship: The end product of evangelization.

Definition: One who embraces and assists in spreading the teachings of another.

Requirements:
Passion, Zeal, or Vigor
Knowledge and Competency
Commitment to a way of life, even if sacrifice is involved.
Evangelization: The entire process of inviting, forming, and sustaining Disciples of Jesus.
GDC #49:
The process of evanglization, consequently, is
structured in stages or "essential moments":

Missionary Activity -- directed toward nonbelievers
and those who live in religious indifference;

Initial Catechetical Activity -- for those who choose
the Gospel and for those who need to complete
or modify their initiation;

Pastoral Activity -- directed toward the Christian
faithful of mature faith in the bosom of the
Christian community.

These moments, however are not unique: they may
be repeated, if necessary, as they give evangelical
nourishment in proportion to the spiritual
growth of each person or of the entire community.
GDC #53:
The Christian faith is, above all, conversion to Jesus Christ, full and sincere adherance to his person and the decision to walk in his footsteps.

Faith is a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, making
oneself a disciple of him. This demands a permanent
commitment to think like him, to judge like him and to
live as he lived.
Evangelization
Missionary
Catechetical
Pastoral
Knowledge of the Faith
Knowledge of Liturgy
Knowledge of Morality
Knowledge of Prayer
Knowledge of Community Life
Knowledge of Missionary Work
Definition of Catechesis
NDC #19:
"Catechesis is that particular form of ministry of the word
which matures initial conversion to make it into a living,
explicit and fruitful confession of faith."

"To put it more precisely: within the whole process of
evangelization, the aim of catechesis is to be the teaching
and maturation stage, that is to say, the period in which
the Christian ... endeavors to know better this Jesus to
whom he has entrusted himself...."

What about a person would indicate that they have
improved in their discipleship?
To empower young people to live as disciples
of Jesus Christ in our world today.
To draw young people to responsible participation
in the life, mission, and work of the
Catholic faith community.
To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
