Youth ministry, also commonly referred to as youth group, is an age-specific religious ministry and is the way in which a faith group involves and engages with the young people who attend Hollies or any other place of worship, or live in its community.
Youth ministry will usually encompass one or more of the following:
- Encouraging young people who profess a faith to learn more about it and become more involved in spiritual life.
- Providing open youth clubs or other activities for the common good of the young people, sometimes without an overtly religious agenda.
- As well as organizing events and activities, youth ministry will usually include some form of religious education and a pastoral oversight of the young people.
