Troy Bauer began as our summer 2015 Youth Ministry Intern. At the end of the summer he was invited to continue on a part-time basis to assist in helping to lead our youth events while he finished his final year of college. He was active in our parish youth programs when he attended high school. After Troy graduated from St. John’s University in May 2016 he began working as the full time Youth Ministry Coordinator.
Troy ministers with our middle and high school teens. He also supports a program for young adults (ages 18-23) called ACTS. When you see programs advertised like the mission trip, M Squad, The Study, Last Friday Night, Core Team, Open Refuge, Middle School Madness, Friday Night Live and Valleyfair, those events are coordinated by Troy. He also coordinates our ninth and tenth grade Confirmation program.
In his spare time he likes to play sports, watch the Minnesota Twins and Green Bay Packers, plus spend time with his family and friends. His younger nieces, nephews and Goddaughter are favorites!
“SSYM ministries seeks to develop youth in their walk towards discipleship and leadership through dynamic, relational, Christ-centered programming. We seek to build strong leaders in the Catholic Church and in the community through challenging opportunities that allow them to use the talents and gifts that they’ve received.”
