Journey to Adulthood (J2A) 

Is a complete youth ministry program of spiritual formation for young people in 6th – 12th grades. Bible study, prayer, rites of passage, outreach ministries and both serious and playful activities are just some of the methods used to underscore its core messages.  It encourages teens to explore the four areas of Self, Spirituality, Sexuality and Society, and learn to connect their faith to all areas of life.


The middle portion of the program engages youth with the skills and critical thinking needed in adulthood. The youth plan and embark on a pilgrimage together at the end of this segment.  A mentor and student work together as they prepare for Confirmation.
