Abstract: Jaunimo sielovada Lietuvoje imta domėtis maždaug prieš penkiolika metų. Daugiausia dėmesio buvo skiriama praktikai. Tuo tarpu jaunimo sielovada teoriniu lygmeniu liko mažai tirta, nėra konkrečių studijų atskiroms jos sritims įvertinti. Kompleksinėje-pliuralistinėje visuomenėje jaunimo sielovada savo tikslų gali siekti, kai atsižvelgia į konkrečias jaunimo situacijas ir geba pasiūlyti veiklos formas, kurios padeda vis glaudžiau susieti tikėjimą ir gyvenimą. Norint gerinti jaunimo evangelizacijos, plačiąja prasme, galimybes, be kita ko, reikalingi atitinkami jaunimo pastoracijos teorijos metodai
In Europe youth ministry became the issue for discussions when a separate group in the society, the young, has emerged. It has happened when the standard of living has improved and the number of educational institutions has increased. The young churchgoers began to join into communities and take greater initiative in terms of youth evangelization. In Western Europe this period of time has almost coincided with the Second Vatican Council, whereas Eastern Europe had its own social system and suffered from the suppression of religion. After Lithuania regained its independence, the interest in youth ministry arose. However, the greater attention was driven to the practical things such as organization of particular events, occasional leadership seminars or preparation of the festive programmes. There was an attempt to adopt the experience of other countries. For this reason Lithuanian diocese youth centres have started and continued the cooperation with youth centres from other countries. Unfortunately, this experience was not as successful as it had been expected. Although there are a number of positive aspects in the youth ministry in Lithuania, we could also see some drawbacks of it; namely: • The work with the young is inconsequent. In addition, the major flaw is the evangelization of the young non-believers. • The activity of permanently operating groups has no definite purpose. • Most of the events and activities for the young are organized by adult protagonists and young people usually remain as passive receivers of the services. • A lot of those who take part in the youth ministry do not have adequate understanding of the phenomenon, thus, they do not perceive the aims and objectives of it. Therefore, it is essential to define what youth ministry is and point out the underlying aim of it. Youth ministry is a purposeful youth activity in the Church community.[...]
