Disciple Maker Starter Pack

Never Alone | Confirmation

One of the most impactful aspects of our NET Retreats is small group ministry. It is a model that we believe in and especially works well with our current generation of young people.

In an effort to make the impact of small groups last longer than a single NET Retreat, we are offering all retreat hosts this curated Starter Pack of our YDisciple materials to give you the best tools to follow up with your students and continue discipling them long after the NET Missionaries leave.

Small group resources

YDisciple is NET Ministries’ small group discipleship resource that provides faithful adults with what they need to make young disciples in their communities. This carefully curated selection of YDisciple resources will help you follow up with your teens after their NET Retreat. NET Missionaries will help them encounter Jesus, but these resources will provide you with tools to walk with your students long after the missionaries leave.

The Invitation

This is our foundational series on discipleship, intended to be the first study completed by every small group. Teens will dive deep into what it means to follow Jesus. (Also in Spanish).

Never Alone: Life With The Holy Spirit

Use this 5-part series to follow-up from your NET Retreat and explore the truth that every Catholic Christian is invited into a living relationship with the Holy Spirit (Also in Spanish).

YDisciple's Mentor Profiles were created to help encourage and inspire potential adult volunteers to take on mentorship roles in the lives of young people, specifically as small group leaders. Our team flew around the continent (and across the ocean!) to talk with some of the adult mentors who inspire us about how and why they do what they do.
