Serve in Youth Ministry

Studies have shown that intergenerational relationships are a major part of helping our young people develop a long-lasting faith. There are numerous roles for adults in Glen Mar's youth ministry, including teachers, small group leaders, mission trip crew leaders, Confirmation mentors (Friends in Faith), drivers, retreat chaperones and hosts for summer activities.

All adults assisting with Glen Mar's youth ministry are required to complete Safe Sanctuaries training. You can find out more about Safe Sanctuaries here. If you are interested in serving with youth at Glen Mar, contact Sean Danaher (Senior High), sean.dahaner@glenmarumc.org, or Jen Rowell (Middle School), jen.rowell@glenmarumc.org.
