TAPT Retreat Adult Leadership Opportunities
Serving as an adult small group leader for our annual diocesan Teens Are Praying Together (TAPT) for high schoolers is one of the best opportunities for youth ministry formation, because it not only trains leaders on how to do small group facilitation and gives them general retreat skills, it allows them to have an immersive experience in youth culture. If you or anyone on your team could benefit from the experience, we will soon be recruiting adult leaders for TAPT XXXI, March 15-17, 2019. You don’t have to wait: reach out to Kevin Driscoll (yyakevATyahoo. com) and nominate yourself or others now to lock in your spot. Three formation meetings train you for service on the retreat. Those dates are Feb. 17, March 3, March 10.
If you have been an adult leader on the TAPT team, loved the retreat (most do!), and would like to dive deeper, consider joining the TAPT Retreat Board team. The TAPT Retreat Board works in the TAPT “off season” to respond to recommendations and explore ways to best meet the ministry needs of teens, adult leaders, and the Diocese of Gary. The Board meets about 3-4 times a year and performs misc. committee tasks as needed. If you are interested in serving as a Board member, contact Jamie Sandona, Board chair, at jsandonaATstjohnbap. org.
