Old Become a Missionary

Discernment Begins Here

Young adults come from across the country to devote nine months of their lives to serving others. We believe every NET Missionary is needed in our mission to encounter young Catholics.

Are you one of the few?


Step 1

Fill Out Your Application

The application includes basic information as well as some questions that can help in your discernment. We know there can be unknowns in the process, but don't worry, our staff of recruiters are here to help every step of the way!


Step 2

Register for a Discernment Weekend

Discernment Weekends take place at the NET Center in West St. Paul, MN. More information can be found here.

Friday includes a 30-45 min interview with NET Staff. Saturday is an all-day event where you will learn more about the mission of NET, what it practically looks like to be a NET Missionary, large and small group discussion, times of prayer, and more.


Step 3

Sign Your Contract

Once you’ve submitted an application and attended a Discernment Weekend, you’ll hear back from our staff in about a week regarding your acceptance.

We hope you have the opportunity to see if the Lord is calling you to serve with NET Ministries through this intentional process.

If so, then as soon as you sign your contract…

Welcome to the 2024-2025 NET Missionary Year!
