Diocesan Youth Staff

Most of the seven New Zealand Dioceses have a Diocesan Youth Facilitator, Co-ordinator, Enabler or Adviser. While the roles vary in detail, generally each one has supportive oversight of parish youth ministry in their region, and acts as an advisor to their Bishops about youth ministry in their Diocese. Click on the map near your town for contact details of your diocesan youth staff member. They would love to hear from you. They are there to help youth leaders and churches to develop healthy youth ministry.
