HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY

Program Description

High School youth are invited to participate in weekly High School Youth Ministry meetings.  We use the Ydisciple program through the FORMED website.

YDisciple is a re-thinking of the way youth ministry is done in the Church. It provides an ideal environment for teenagers to come to know and love their faith. Discipleship is not a program – it is an apprenticeship in the Christian life.

YDisciple is designed to:

  • Train and equip adults to disciple teens.
  • Connect teens with caring, faith-filled adults who can apprentice them in the disciplines of a disciple.
  • Draw teens out of the crowd into an environment where they can be known and cared for.
  • Catechize in a small-group setting where testimony, discussion, and faith sharing can take place.
  • Support parents with resources to grow in their own faith and share their faith with their teenagers.
  • Provide quality content so adult leaders can effectively introduce and explore topics of the faith.
  • Mobilize as many adults as possible to mentor teens through a user-friendly online platform.

Sessions generally follow this format:

  • Dig in – Introduce the Session with Activity or Discussion
  • Plant Seeds – Lead the Opening Prayer and Set up the Theme with a Scripture Passage, Catechism reference, or Notable Quote that Captures the Study
  • Sink Roots – Watch the Video Segments for the Main Content of the Study
  • Live It – Explore how to Live these Teachings
  • Take it to Prayer – Pray and Encourage Prayer and Reflection
  • Bear Fruit – Summarize and Help the Teens Set Resolutions to Live these Teachings
