YDisciple - Feedback or Experience?

Our parish is made up of around 1800 households. We have several hundred high school aged teens. Over the past three years, we have struggled to grow our youth ministry program because we have had very high turnover with our youth ministers. Last year's YM resigned around Thanksgiving (after a major screw up on his end) and the year was finished out by several adult volunteers.

Here's my topic for discussion ... We have had this program, YDisciple, running for the past few years. One parent sort of "brought the program" to our old DRE and they implemented it in our high school youth ministry. However, we've found that it's not working well for us for several reasons. I don't want to state what they are - yet - because I would love to know what anyone else's experience with YDisciple has been and how it has worked, or not worked, at your parish.

  • I have not used it, but a friend at a nearby parish has. From what they told me it took on too much of a classroom feel at their parish, something both of us were trying to get away from.
