What is EDGE?
Combining formation with catechesis, we hope to create a state-of-the-art youth program that reaches our youth on a personal and spiritual level. It has been shown that foundational life decisions are set not in high school, but more and more in middle school. We know what it takes to communicate to this generation of teens. We feel it is imperative that they experience a vibrant, Catholic culture with like-minded youth before they enter high school. When our middle school students make the transition to high school, our goal is that they will have the courage needed to stand up for what is right and have the tools they need to fight for their beliefs.
When is EDGE?
We meet in the Social Hall, (usually) every other Wednesday. The nights run from 6:15 pm – 8 pm, and we average about two meetings a month.
Who is your Youth Minister?
Husband, father, unabashed nerd, lover of all things Tennessee Athletics (no matter the pain it may cause), but most importantly, a son of the Father who keeps messing up but is trying to get better each and every day.
My name is Jesse Butrum, and I serve as the Life Teen, EDGE, and Confirmation coordinator at All Saints. I met my (now) wife when we served as a Life Teen missionary in 2012, and we were married in 2014. We have three beautiful children, Eliza, Emilia, and Michael. I graduated from The University of Tennessee in 2013, with a degree in English. I began my mission here at All Saints in 2013, and every year since has been a new and exciting adventure with the young people of this amazing parish.
