Through their witness marked by the joy and hope of Faith, the Young Disciples Teams seek to challenge the youth of North Dakota to love Jesus Christ and to embrace the life of His Church.
The Diocese Of Fargo, North Dakota covers 1/2 of the state. Many of the parishes are in small rural towns. With the decline of religious sisters and the rural crisis, the need for parish camps has increased. Last summer alone, over 25 parishes did not receive the assistance they asked for. The Young Disciples Teams were created to help fit this need. The teams are young adults on fire for the Lord, willing to share/teach their knowledge and faith with children and their families.
