GO MAKE DISCIPLES.
WE ALL KNOW JESUS' FINAL COMMISSION TO "GO MAKE DISCIPLES..." (MATTHEW 28:18-20). DON'T GET ME WRONG, THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT AND SOMETHING I AM LITERALLY LIVING INTO THESE DAYS AS A MISSIONARY, BUT THE PART THAT STICKS OUT TO ME IS WHAT HAPPENS RIGHT BEFORE THOSE WORDS ARE SPOKEN...
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN GRATEFUL FOR LATELY?
PRAYING THAT YOU SEE THE BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE AND THAT YOU MAY KNOW HOW GRATITUDE TURNS EVERYTHING INTO ENOUGH...
IT SEEMS SILLY, BUT MY PROBLEM IS THAT I'M COMFORTABLE. NOW, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE SWEATPANTS AND COMFY CARDIGAN THAT I'M WEARING RIGHT NOW. I'M TALKING ABOUT THE AREAS IN MY LIFE THAT I'M SLOWLY BECOMING COMPLACENT IN BECAUSE OF MY SENSE OF COMFORT. MOSTLY, I'M TALKING ABOUT HOW I'M TOO COMFORTABLE IN WHERE I LIVE, THE PEOPLE I LIVE WITH, THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT I FORM OR DON'T FORM, AND THE HABITS THAT HAVE STARTED TO CREEP SLOWLY BACK INTO MY LIFE...

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.
