Paul Jarzembowski explains that discipleship is one of the principles of young adult ministry:

Discipleship makes us grow deeper. Young Adult Ministry calls its leaders to develop disciples for Jesus Christ — following in the tradition set forth in Matthew 28:19: “Go and make disciples of all peoples.” We support, nurture, form, and build a community for the young adults who are developing a connection with their Catholic faith.

This aspect of Young Adult Ministry may involve programs and activities, but the main focus should be on the growth of young adults as persons of faith.
