1/31/19 — Youth Minister St. John the Apostle,  Sandbridge Beach (just south of Virginia Beach)

Youth Minister

St. John the Apostle,  Sandbridge Beach (just south of Virginia Beach)

If you have ever been to Sandbridge Beach (just south of Virginia Beach), you probably have attended a Catholic Church called St. John the Apostle, with a pastor there named Fr. Rob.  The interesting thing about Fr. Rob is that at first glance, you would think that you were in for a whole lot of kumbaya and felt banners and the like, due to his “surfer dude” type hair style and other things.  But as someone who has attended many a Mass with him, he is solid, and is a very good priest, and he is very knowledgeable about Christendom College (We have a very loyal donor family who are parishioners there who tell him great things about us).  The point to all of this is that Fr. Rob is looking for a youth minister, and I want to encourage any alumni to consider it.  It is a growing parish, with a school attached to it, and a very solid priest and deacon on staff. If you are interested, I would be happy to contact Fr. Rob directly and tell him to keep an eye out for your application.

God bless,
