Why we do this
Originally founded by youth, Torchbearer Ministries empowers teenagers to fall in love with the beauty of Christ and His Church, and to live their lives as a reflection of that love in their world.
As a response to the decline of passionate youth, we strive to create the most effective resources for those who interact with youth to share the truth and beauty of the faith. We do so through an apostleship model that shares primary resources, promotes organic conversation, and speaks the truth with tact but without apology.
"It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle."
-Pope John Paul II
