About Us

YOUTH EVANGELIZING YOUTH

YouthInk is a ministry of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. We passionately engage young people to cultivate a vibrant community of evangelizers. We provide a way for young people to express themselves through their artistic and creative talents. We proclaim God’s love, joy and mercy through new media, such as blogging, podcasts, and social media. In YouthInk, we want to empower young people to grow as leaders and to be positive influencers of their friends and family through education and evangelization.

Musician & Teacher are my professions.  Doing both to serve God is my passion! Everyone has a gift to share and my joy is in helping others find that gift.

"With a passion for art and sharing God’s love, I try my best to use my talents to love my neighbours and glorify HIM. I’m an experienced graphic designer and social media coordinator and I’m excited to work with everyone!

I may seem calm, but trust me, I’m panicking."

I am a nursing student and I am passionate about bringing peace to my patients. I love to write about God’s extraordinary love and the unique ways I’ve encountered Him.

 

In my spare time, you can find me updating my Spotify playlists, drinking large cups of tea and spending quiet time with the Author of Life.

“I have a knack for planning and coordinating events, focusing on detail and getting things done – all for the better glory of God.”

“I believe there is a calling for everyone and I know that God has a great plan. His love outpouring is my drive to continue to do good and share His word.”

​Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
