Young Adult In Ministry Intiative Scholarship


The National Conference of Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) seeks to encourage young people to consider this ministry through its Young Adult in Ministry Initiative.

The purpose of this Young Adult in Ministry Initiative is to:
- raise awareness about professional catechetical ministry among young adults who might be discerning ecclesial professional roles
- foster arch/diocesan involvement in bringing forth strong candidates for professional catechetical ministry among young adults
- create an awareness in young adults of the benefits of gathering with NCCL, the professional organization for catechetical leaders which includes parish and diocesan leaders, academic members, and publishers

This year NCCL is sponsoring young adults. Each will receive a full registration, allowing them to participate in all Liturgies and prayer services, major presentations, learning sessions, NCCL Forum and Province discussions, as well as the NCCL Awards Luncheon, OSV Lunch, the Sadlier Event, and visiting the exhibits. The value of this award is over $350. It does not include travel, lodging, and other meals and expenses.

To be eligible, Young Adult in Ministry candidates must:
- be 30 years of age or younger;
- hold a bachelor’s degree or higher;
- never have been a paid full-time professional parish/diocesan catechetical leader
- demonstrate an interest in catechetics or a related field
- be nominated by a professor, a department chair, or an NCCL member
- be able to cover the additional expenses not included in this award
- not have received this award for a previous NCCL conference
