YDisciple Exclusive Content

Programs don't made disciples, disciples do.

Since 2019, YDisciple has been a part of the mission of NET Ministries. Because NET cares for both our Catholic ministry leaders and the young people they serve, we want to be able to support you every step of the way. We are a relational ministry, and that means we are here for you. By having our ministry leaders subscribe and use YDisicple.tv, we can more personally serve you and assist your ministry needs.

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.
