YDisciple Make-Up Policy

YDisciple is a program based on small group discipleship to teens. Groups consist of 5-9 students and 1 or more mentors. Since these groups are so small, when one student is absent, it impacts the entire group. For that reason, we encourage teens and mentors to work together to plan their sessions for days and times where the entire group can meet. We understand that life happens, and sometimes you get sick or have a last minute commitment that is unavoidable. For this reason, we allow three "excused" absences (20% of our classes). Missing more than three sessions may result in a student needing to repeat a year, with that decision being made by the DRE and Pastor. Instructions for making up missed sessions (changing an "Absent" to an "Excused") can be found below.

To make up a missed session, you will need to create an account on To do so, please download the following document. Once you create your FORMED login, you will need to locate your missed study by following the instruction on this document. Once you have located your missed study on and watched the videos, please thoroughly answer the questions that go along with those videos, in your YDisciple journal. You will need to show your journal to your mentor to get an excused absence. Questions for each of the videos can be found below:
