My area of ministry is teaching the sophomore religion class at Providence High School. I would like the students to develop a deeper relationship with God. This project will be an attempt to bring these students into a deeper understanding of themselves and their church community. The ultimate goal is that the students will grow spiritually by the grace of God.

The time period for this project will be from August 1997 to March 1998. I will start with several surveys and other forms which will give an overview of where the students are presently in their faith development. We will proceed on a weekly basis to develop their love and relationship with God, using the textbook as a basis for the themes. The students will be given different activities that they will work on individually as well as in groups to expand their prayer life.
