There's lots of great things I could tell you about our mission here at BTC but I think its best to hear it from some of our teens instead...
SURVIVE OR THRIVE- STL
"Many lay people fear that they may be asked to undertake some apostolic work and they seek to avoid any responsibility that may take away from their free time...This is frequently due to the fact that people feel an overbearing need to guard their personal freedom, as though the task of evangelization was a dangerous poison rather than a joyful response to God’s love which summons us to mission and makes us fulfilled and productive." - Joy of the Gospel
MOM ON MISSION- HAITI
*A guest blog by Amanda's mom after spending a week at the base in Haiti
You’re going where?!...Haiti… For how long?...a week...Really????
This was the conversation I had with my husband, Ron. I promised myself that this year I would be more fearless and just say yes to new experiences. Well, here was my chance! So after lots of prayer and encouragement from Ron, I was on a flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti!

WHAT IS LIFE TEEN MISSIONS?
Life Teen Missions is answering the call from Christ’s final command in Matthew 28:19, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” through our specific ministry to teens. We invest in the lives of the youth around us by going out to them, inviting them into relationship and teaching them what it means to follow Christ.
Prayer is the foundation of all Christian life. As missionaries, we are called to be “contemplatives in action”. All our activity flows out of our prayer life, which includes both personal and communal prayer. Our prayer, the heartbeat of our communities, includes a daily personal holy hour, daily mass where available, and a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Our missionary communities consist of single adults and families committed to a full life in Christ. Life Teen mission communities share a common vision, pray and discern together, and do all things for the Glory of God. Each member lives this out by embracing their unique role and by building trust through vulnerability, affirmation, and encouragement. Community life offers a safe but challenging place to live out our faith.
All Life Teen Missionaries are disciples committed to the person of Jesus Christ and His mission. Being a disciple of Christ demands a response to go out and create even more disciples. As Life Teen missionaries, we desire to be witnesses to all, to journey with an intimate small group and to invest ourselves entirely in our disciples.
