calendar, helping line up RiTi)
3. Council ministry chairs (Worship, Education, Deacon, Missions): include the designated youth leaders in your ministry emails, invite them to your monthly (and other) meetings keeping in mind that his/her main task is to lead youth, but help them to do that in a way that is integrated with the
whole life of the church.
