Faith Formation Professional Team
Faith Formation for grade 9 youth begins in January with the YDisciple program. YDisciple is an interactive film series that allows for group discussion and growth. Adult mentors are there to facilitate and engage the students in conversation about the video topics.
YDisciple meets young people exactly where they are at and asks simple, but profound questions which allow youth to search their hearts for an open and honest response rather than a "textbook" answer. In YDsciple, there is no judgement but rather a freedom to search and find meaning in Christ.
YDisciple challenges young people to consider what they truly believe. In small group sharing and discussion young people are given the opportunity to own their faith and learn from the shared stories of others.
YDisciple small groups are facilitated by two adults and consist of 4-8 youth per group. They will meet weekly for 12 weeks during the spring semester of their 9th grade year going into their 10th grade year. This program fulfills first-year preparation for Confirmation.
