Council evaluates youth ministry by ProQuest


Dean Peter Wall, of the diocese of Niagara, told CoGS that although youth ministry is having a "life-giving and life-changing impact" for young Canadian Anglicans, it is currently not only outside the established structures of the church but it is being done "at multiple levels" and "with no clear lines of accountability."He noted that when the church's 1995 strategic plan was adopted, youth work was moved to dioceses, where in many cases, it has been "foundering" and has been "further downgraded" to parishes. He said that, most dioceses do not have full-time staff dedicated to youth ministry so that "we have lost much of our knowledge" around that area of work.
