Crossroads Four-Year Curriculum

Ever feel that it is impossible for youth ministry to wed evangelization and catechesis?

Do you struggle with keeping your teens after their sophomore year?
Do you wish you could have a process that would help teens make a lifelong decision to follow Christ?

Imagine significantly cutting your planning time for your youth meetings!

YM Central is excited to introduce its Crossroads Curriculum, a four-year curriculum that includes 12 semesters and 144 meetings.

The Crossroads Curriculum offers a unique approach to forming a teen’s faith. Following the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the curriculum is a systematic and complete process that helps teens grow in their faith, no matter their level. The 12 semesters are divided into 6 units, with each unit consisting of 2 meetings.

  • The first is an evangelistic Youth Group meeting directed to teens of all faiths. These sessions invite teens to make a commitment to Christ through the Church.
  • The second is a Going Deeper meeting to help the teens develop catechetical roots to their faith. Using apologetics and sound Catholic philosophy, each Going Deeper meeting is a Bible study for teens to help them know and love the Catholic Faith.

While many themes are repeated throughout this curriculum, teens who participate in it for four years will never have to go through the same meeting twice!
