Building a Sustainable Catholic Youth Ministry
The following has been adapted for Catholic parishes from the book Sustainable Youth Ministry: Why Most Youth Ministry Doesn’t Last and What Your Church Can Do About It by Mark DeVries (InterVarsity Press, 2008). These four lists are practical considerations for building a sustainable youth ministry and are intended as working check lists for you to use in planning and developing your ministry. They are not meant to be a complete list for every parish, nor is there a strict timeline. They are simply to help you grasp the big picture and build something sustainable.
There is a PDF at the bottom if you'd like to download the entire thing and print it.
