Vision of this ministry:
The Youth Musician works directly with the MS and the HS Ministry Directors to supervise the formation and discipleship of the young people (6th- 12th grade) of the parish- especially male leadership. His two main priorities will be: 1) discipleship of leaders and 2) youth music.
1) His priority is discipling (relational ministry with ) the adult and youth heads of the various ministries- (at this point, these are the High School Core Team, Youth Leader, Rebel, Doulos, music ministry team, and chaperones for YM events.
2) While the music ministry– which prepares and performs the music for the Youth Mass, Rise, and YM Events– is the most visible of these discipleship groups in the parish, the other groups are highly important supports to our ministry. Works directly with young people in a variety of settings-e.g. social, spiritual, catechetical, and outreach-is vital.

General Responsibilities:
• The Youth Musician works with the Youth Ministry Staff to discern the needs of the parish community and will annually develop and discern a comprehensive ministry plan to meet those needs. Serves as an advocate for young people to the broader staff, the pastor, and the leaders of the St. Francis community.
