“Today I felt really connected to God, especially during the prayer time. I felt like He was in the room with us and I was embracing His love.”
Walking with your youth in their faith journey.
A team of young adults in your community for two years, re-engaging young people in their Catholic faith.
What we’ve heard ministry leaders say
What it looks like
A team of young adult missionaries come to your community for up to two years. This team will share their faith and journey with your young people. They will reach out to unchurched youth and draw them into a relationship with Christ and accompany those students who are committed followers of Christ, taking them deeper. Perfect for your parish, school or diocese!
“I and all in the parish who have met, worked with or experienced the joy, enthusiasm, and self-evident love of Christ in the team, are both happy and grateful for the great work they have begun here and will continue to do in the months ahead”
“The NET Team helped me reclaim my faith, and I am so grateful for that”
How the Process Works
What do Discipleship Teams Do?
Backed by a professional staff team and over 600 hours of ministry formation, priests, parents and ministry leaders can lean into the NET Team’s support to plant seeds of faith in their youth through the facilitation of youth groups, small group Bible studies, classroom presentations and other opportunities for evangelization and discipleship.
We provide the opportunity for schools and parishes across Canada to have a fully packaged youth ministry run by one of our Discipleship Teams. The team arrives in the community in early October and does ministry until the end of May (with a mid year break for the Christmas holidays). A new team comes for the second year following the same timeline. Each team is fully trained and equipped to run youth nights, music ministry, youth accompaniment groups and more.
Do you work for a diocese? We have offered Discipleship Teams to entire dioceses before! Talk to our staff if you would like to hear about what we’ve done in other places and how you can get a Discipleship Team in your diocese.
Already have a youth coordinator in your parish? Great! We love working alongside and supporting parish youth coordinators. We help the youth coordinator by extending his/her reach to more youth, while also helping raise volunteer leaders to support the youth coordinator.
Youth ministry can be intimidating if you don’t know where to start. By bringing a NET team to your area, you can be a part of this mission to transform the lives of young people. Contact us today!
What could you do with a NET Team at your school, parish or diocese over the course of two years? If you are interested in starting a conversation about having a Discipleship Team, please contact our Discipleship Ministry Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
