“Overall, the retreat was amazing, despite it being a bit different with everything being online, I was able to look at my relationship with God in a sort of new light.”
Re-engage your young people’s faith.
A retreat with a NET Team will give your youth an opportunity to hear about, respond to and live for Jesus Christ.
Connecting with youth about their faith can be difficult.
What it looks like
A NET Live Retreat led by a team of our vibrant young adult missionaries can effectively offer your young people a simple, clear message of God’s love and a chance to experience the Gospel personally without having to gather in the same room. We work with you to reach many youth in a short time and build momentum for your local youth ministry. Effective. Convenient. Flexible.
“The presenters were fun and engaging and connected well with the kids. The student feedback was very positive. […] It is awesome to have young adults as role models for our students who are just in their teen years.”
“[My small group leader] is one of the best people I’ve ever met. She’s so nice and so positive about everything. Thank you so much for helping me believe in God and be a better person. Thank you!”
How the Process Works
What Do Retreat Teams Do?
Backed by a professional Staff Team and over 600 hours of Ministry Formation, educators can lean into the NET Team’s support to plant seeds of faith in their youth through the facilitation of retreats, classroom presentations and other opportunities for evangelization and discipleship.
We provide the opportunity for schools and parishes across Canada to have a fully packaged retreat run by one of our retreat teams.
Currently, we offer NET Live Retreats, a virtual and engaging retreat experience for young people. Each young person will connect to the retreat via WiFi and a personal device (laptop, computer, iPad, phone, etc.), and the team will lead your young people through games, presentations, video recorded dramas, music and prayer opportunities. Each team is fully trained and equipped to put on retreats for students grades 6 and up. The ideal size for a NET Live Retreat is 24 young people, with the maximum size being 30 people.
In-person retreats are currently limited. When in-person retreats resume, teams will be able to offer retreats in multiple formats, from classroom presentations to full-day retreats. The team would arrive at the designated retreat site and run the event from start to finish.
When in-person ministry resumes, over the course of 10 months one Retreat Team will:
>> Serve in roughly 17 different dioceses
>> Travel over 20,000km
>> Facilitate approximately 125 retreats
>> Share the Gospel with over 8,700 youth
Youth ministry can be intimidating if you don’t know where to start. By booking a NET Live Retreat, you can be a part of this mission to transform the lives of young people. Contact us today!
