Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test. It is a relationship.
Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy.
Spiritually is not about perfect; it is about connection.
Mike Yaconelli was a writer, theologian and church leader who pastored a church and ministered to students. He shared the words above in one of the many resources he penned and his wisdom stands at the foundation of the ministry we do with and for our young people at St. John’s.
Any learning that may come from their engagement in confirmation or youth groups is icing on the cake – establishing relationships and deepening connections between the students, the adults who serve in the ministry, the wider congregation and God are paramount.
