Frequently Asked Questions About YDisciple

1. What is YDisciple?

YDisciple is a re-thinking of the way youth ministry is done in the Church. It provides an ideal environment for teenagers to come to know and love their faith. Discipleship is not a program – it is an apprenticeship in the Christian life.

YDisciple is designed to:

  • Train and equip adults to disciple teens.
  • Connect teens with caring, faith-filled adults who can apprentice them in the disciplines of a disciple.
  • Draw teens out of the crowd into an environment where they can be known and cared for.
  • Catechize in a small-group setting where testimony, discussion, and faith sharing can take place.
  • Support parents with resources to grow in their own faith and share their faith with their teenagers.
  • Provide quality content so adult leaders can effectively introduce and explore topics of the faith.
  • Mobilize as many adults as possible to mentor teens through a user-friendly online platform.

2. How much does the YDisciple digital platform cost and what does it include?

YDisciple is available as a part of the FORMED parish subscription for only $159.99 / month or $1680 / year. Parishes can subscribe exclusively to YDisciple for $119.99 (or $1439.88 / year). But for only $240.12 more per year, you have access to all of FORMED—including hundreds of video programs, movie, audios, and e-books!

FORMED is an amazing digital platform that gives parishes access to all the digital studies, activities and training videos. Adult volunteers and teens would also have appropriate access to the online platform (i.e. adults would be able to see the training videos, but the teens would not; everyone would have access to the study videos).

3. How long is a small group session of one lesson?

A small group (5-8 teens) session designed to last 90 minutes

4. What does a session look like?

Sessions generally follow this format:

  • Dig in - Introduce the Session with Activity or Discussion
  • Plant Seeds - Lead the Opening Prayer and Set up the Theme with a Scripture Passage, Catechism reference, or Notable Quote that Captures the Study
  • Sink Roots - Watch the Video Segments for the Main Content of the Study
  • Live It - Explore how to Live these Teachings
  • Take it to Prayer - Pray and Encourage Prayer and Reflection
  • Bear Fruit - Summarize and Help the Teens Set Resolutions to Live these Teachings

5. Will YDisciple follow teens over all 4 years?

Yes. Currently about a year’s worth of studies are available on the digital platform, and the Augustine Institute will continue adding studies to follow teens over all 4 years. In other words, a teen will be able to watch new studies throughout all 4 high school years.

6. Does YDisciple include more than just small group session material?

Yes. Though small groups are at the heart of YDisciple because they are at the heart of discipleship, the Augustine Institute recognizes the importance of community and large group events. Therefore YDisciple also includes resources for community building, social events, prayer experiences, and service projects.

7. Can I view samples of the YDisciple videos?

Yes! See some samples by clicking here.
