Youth Minister Formation

The Office of Youth Ministry is committed to strengthening the youth ministry programs in the diocese by offering opportunities to full-time, part-time and volunteer youth ministers to continue their formation through a variety of different programs.

Spiritual Formation

The Upper Room Youth Minister Retreat is a 3 day, 2 night gathering of all youth ministers and their teams to grow in the faith. This weekend usually has a mix of faith, fun and fellowship. It is also usually held in the month of June.


The Intercultural Workshop is a time for all adults working with youth to come and be trained on how to minister to the Hispanic youth community. Within the Diocese of Savannah, approximately 54% of youth are Hispanic.
