St. Luke the Evangelist Church in Slidell, Louisiana, is seeking a Youth Minister.  

This individual will be responsible for engaging young people in the life of the parish and the larger Church.  This is not simply a teaching position; he/she should be viewed as an equal peer of the Director of Religious Education, liturgical coordinator, physical plant supervisor, staff secretaries, etc.

In the ideal ministry situation, the Youth Minister and the Director of Religious Education should collaborate to ensure that all areas of adolescent religious development are being addressed by the parish and that the two programs are not in competition, but instead complementary.


- Must be a confirmed, practicing Catholic, deeply rooted in the values, teachings and morals of the Catholic Faith. Must be in full communion with the Church, with no encumbrances or restrictions to the reception of the sacraments.

- Must have experience in Youth Ministry, having attained a certification in Youth Ministry or working toward that certification.

This part time position encompasses approximately 20-25 hours per week, with adequate on-site office hours as well as hands on youth activity time, much of which will include weekends.  Due to the nature of youth ministry programming, it is understood hours worked may vary from week to week, but will average over the course of a month/quarter. This position has the potential of full time status depending on the growth and success of the programs developed.
