Why are you a youth leader at ACP? I believe that our teenage (and preteen) years are an incredibly important phase of our faith lives.  As we start to become independent individuals we can now chose to either grow closer to God or farther from him.  Youth group had a huge impact on my life during middle and high school, creating a foundation of faith that has stayed with me until today.  Now it is my turn to give back and contribute to this important ministry in my parish of ACP.
