Mr. Chris Wesley, SJS Parent, Named SJP Director of Youth Ministry

Msgr. Rick Hilgartner recently shared the good news that the church had hired a new Director of Youth Ministry -- Mr. Chris Wesley. As Father Rick and his pastoral team look forward to Chris "growing and energizing our ministry", the school family adds our best wishes to Chris and his wife, Kate, who are SJS parents of a son in first grade. Chris, who served as the Director of Youth Ministry at the Church of the Nativity for 12 years, most recently was working as a youth ministry coach and mentor and producing resources for his website "Marathon Youth Ministry." He also has written several books on ministry for young people including "Rebuilding Youth Ministry" and has been a sought-after speaker on the subject. He says, "I'm looking forward to working with the members of St. Joseph Parish to grow disciples and invest in the next generation of the church."
