  • Stories Jesus Told Teen Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    If you’re human, you love a good story. Whether it’s a novel, a film, or a song, we are products of the narratives that have formed us. We’re made up of stories we’d like to forget, as well. If you’re looking for fresh inspiration, or stuck living under the weight of a story you can’t shake off, the Parables of Jesus can form who we are and reveal more about God than we ever thought possible – and they’ll provide the hope we’re all looking for, speaking above all the other noise we are experiencing.

  • Philippians Teen Bible Study

    $21.00

    As disciples of Jesus, we have been given the great responsibility of stewarding our influence for the glory of God. We were created to think, dream, and lead at the feet of Jesus. Leadership is, then, cultivated under the overarching purpose of discipleship. This is why leadership doesn’t begin with action, but rather identity – not with what we can accomplish, but rather what Jesus has accomplished for us. In this study we will dive into Paul’s letter to the first church ever planted in Europe. A closer look allows us to glean the transformational ideas that successful leaders have embraced, both past and present.

    In this 7-session Bible study, students will learn from Student Leadership University Vice President, Brent Crowe, as he examines the life and leadership of the apostle Paul, exploring twelve key elements of Christ-honoring leadership. Students will begin to recognize their own leadership potential, understand what it truly means to lead others, and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.

  • Hes Where The Joy Is Teen Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    The Trinity.

    Does just hearing that phrase make your eyes glaze over and your mind begin to reel? Are you paralyzed, afraid someone will ask you to explain who or what the Trinity is?

    It’s easy to believe that the Trinity is such a lofty and mysterious idea it’s not even worth your time to try and grasp it. But God wants you to know Him and He reveals what might sometimes seem like intimidating doctrines of faith through His Word and the power of the Holy Spirit.

    As you grow in your understanding of the Trinity, you’ll deepen your intimacy with God. In He’s Where the Joy Is, you’ll see that drawing closer to God ushers you into more peace and abundant life than you imagined possible-in His presence you’ll find fullness of joy.

    In this seven-session study, Tara-Leigh Cobble carefully and biblically pulls back the curtain to help you get a clearer view of the Trinity. You’ll look at the Trinity as a whole and examine each of the Persons of God individually-Father, Son, and Spirit. You’ll see how knowing God in His three-in-oneness transforms how you relate to Him. A richer understanding of who God is will begin to inform everything about the way you make peace with your past, live in the present, look to the future, and interact with others.

    What you learn about God will shape you for the rest of your life. He’s waiting to delight you with who He is.

  • Lead Them To Jesus

    $17.99

    Do you feel overwhelmed with the logistics of starting or keeping a youth ministry going? What about the tricky theological questions that keep you and your fellow youth workers on your toes? It’s a lot for what is usually an “all-volunteer army.” Help is here! Veteran youth pastor Mike McGarry offers a practical, comprehensive tool to jumpstart your youth ministry and help youth workers with biblical answers to the tough questions students ask. In a two-part approach, he tackles both the practical skills and biblical depth needed for effective gospel-centered ministry to today’s youth. He leads readers through twenty theological truths they should be equipped to discuss with students and offers twenty practical skills every youth worker should cultivate.

    Lead Them to Jesus offers insight into the religious worldview of Gen Z and illustrates how to connect the gospel to their questions and core desires. Not only are young people ready to discuss hard issues such as suicide, suffering, and navigating difficult relationships, they are looking for authentic leaders who are committed to speaking truth and investing into their lives.

    McGarry prepares both youth pastors and ministry volunteers to go deep with students about what they believe and why. He also helps them think through the strategic role of fun and games and shares how to navigate conflict and cliques. Lead Them to Jesus shows youth workers how the gospel shapes every part of how they do youth ministry and will get your whole team on the same biblical and logistical page.

  • 3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager

    $19.99

    Today’s teenagers are the most anxious, creative, and diverse generation in history–which can make it hard for us to relate. And while every teenager is a walking bundle of questions, three rise above the rest:
    – Who am I?
    – Where do I fit?
    – What difference can I make?

    Young people struggle to find satisfying and life-giving answers to these questions on their own. They need caring adults willing to lean in with empathy, practice listening, and gently point them in the direction of better answers: they are enough because of Jesus, they belong with God’s people, and they are invited into God’s greater story.

    In this book, which is based on new landmark research from the Fuller Youth Institute and combines in-depth interviews with data from 1,200 diverse teenagers, Kara Powell and Brad M. Griffin offer pastors, youth leaders, mentors, and parents practical and proven conversations and connections that help teenagers answer their three biggest questions and reach their full potential.

  • TruthFilled Teen Girls Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” -Colossians 3:16a

    Many of us want God’s Word to dwell richly in us, but life can get in the way.

    We’d never intentionally write chapters of confusion, failure, loss, pain, conflict, or suffering into our stories. No one plans to wrestle with her identity in Christ, to struggle to love those most important to her, to feel lonely or helpless. Yet we often find ourselves in these seasons, struggling to embrace the hope we need.Join Ruth Chou Simons in this 7-session study of the Book of Colossians as she leads girls through a practice of preaching gospel truth to themselves by studying Paul’s example. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us. In today’s culture, there’s no shortage of self-help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill us up and satisfy us fully.

  • Chasing Love Teen Bible Study Leader Kit

    $83.50

    Doesn’t happiness come from finding “real love”?

    Our culture says to live for yourself first, but Jesus said to put His kingdom first. This is accomplished through loving God and loving other people (Mark 12). But committing to follow God above all else may come at a price. After all, it means giving up some of the things our culture says are good.

    So how do we seek God and His kingdom first in our relationships with other people? This is the great task Jesus has called us to.

    There are many ways to love God and love other people. In this nine-session Bible study, Sean McDowell will focus on what it means to love God and others with our sexuality.

  • Life Questions Every Student Asks

    $22.00

    Every student asks questions about life beyond the classroom:
    *What does it mean to be in community?
    *How can I discern my vocation?
    *How should I understand marriage and sex?
    *How should I relate to money and power?
    *What happens if I doubt my faith?

Burge and David Lauber, coeditors of Theology Questions Everyone Asks, have gathered insights from Christian faculty who draw on their own experiences in conversation with students during office hours and over coffee. Sometimes, the deepest learning takes place outside the classroom.

  • Defined Teen Guys And Young Men Bible Study Bible

    $21.00

    Who Are You?

    When you introduce yourself to someone for the first time, you may start with your name, where you go to school, a sport or instrument you play, or your future plans. Each of those may help our culture define us, but are they enough? There are bigger questions culture can’t answer: “Who am I?” and “Why do I matter?” But first, you must answer, “Who is God?”

    Scripture teaches that we’re all made in the image of God. We don’t define ourselves-the Creator does. Once you begin to understand who God is and what it means to be created in His image, you’ll begin to discover all God has called you to be. This Bible study will examine spiritual truths from the Book of Ephesians to lead you into a closer relationship with God and a better understanding and appreciation of your God-given identity-which is fulfilled in Christ.

    Defined Teen Guys’ Bible Study Book includes content for eight sessions, personal study between group sessions, applicable Scripture, “How to Use this Study,” tips for leading a group, and a leader guide.

  • Defined Teen Girls And Young Women Bible Study Bible

    $14.99

    Who Are You?

    I am who God says I am.
    I can do what God says I can do.
    I can become exactly what God says I can become.

    You are a miracle. And that’s exactly what this study is about–your true identity. Who you really are. The culture will try to define you, your past may try to label you, the enemy will seek to deceive you, but no one has the authority to give you your name–your identity–except your Father. And He says that your uniqueness is an expression of His creative genius and is designed to reflect His glory.

    Join Priscilla for eight weeks and begin to understand what it means to be created in God’s image and recreated in Christ’s image as His masterpiece. Once you discover who God says you are and the spiritual inheritance that you have, you can start walking in your true identity as a daughter of the most high King.

    You’ll spend your whole life either trying to be and become something you were never meant to be, or discovering who you are in Him and living up to that standard by the power of His Spirit within you.

    You are His!

    And you were created for the purpose of reflecting God’s light to the world.

    Like all of God’s miracles, your life will leave a lasting impact if you’ll simply be yourself, surrendered to God, molded by His Spirit, and on mission for Him.

    Defined Teen Girls’ Bible Study Book includes content for eight sessions, personal study between group sessions, applicable Scripture, “How to Use this Study,” tips for leading a group, and a leader guide.

  • Show Her The Way

    $19.50

    Where you lead, she will follow.

    Today’s teen girls are facing more pressure than any generation before. We want so much to help them navigate the barrage of cultural messages coming at them every day and show them how to filter what they hear, see, and experience through the truth of God’s Word. But where do we start?

    Perhaps you’ve felt God tugging at your heart to disciple teen girls, either one-on-one or in the context of a group in your church or community, but all you see are barriers: How can I disciple someone else if I’ve never been discipled? How do I know where to start? What do we do when we meet together? Or if you’ve been discipling girls for a while, you may be asking how you can take it to the next level.

    Show Her the Way will guide you along a journey that may have simply begun with good intentions and a heart to serve but has the potential to lead girls into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and a future of ministering to others.

    You are called to disciple the next generation of young women. Whether you’re a girls’ minister, a volunteer leader in your church, a mom, or simply someone who cares and wants to make a difference, let this book serve as a trusted guide to discipling the teen girls in your life.

  • Within Reach : The Power Of Small Changes In Keeping Students Connected

    $21.00

    A few small changes can make a big difference.

    As your students graduate high school, are they graduating from church too?

    Research shows that the majority of teenagers who are active in church during high school stop attending shortly after. In a new study, LifeWay Student Ministry and LifeWay Research have partnered to identify the factors that are contributing to this disturbing trend as well as those factors that contribute to teens staying in church. In his first book, Student Ministry That Matters, Ben Trueblood laid out a clear approach to creating a healthy student ministry in any context. In this book, Ben points student ministry leaders to the hope found within this startling statistic. The solution is not a full-scale revamping of student ministry. Rather, the hope for helping students build lifelong faith and keeping them connected to the church after high school is just a few small changes away.

    Benefits:
    *Prepare students to stay connected to a local church once they graduate high school
    *Identify where we are, what we’re finding in the data, and action steps we can take in the church and in families to keep students engaged
    *Understand factors that influenced students who stayed in church and those who didn’t
    *Consider what’s going on in the home and how this contributes to students staying in or leaving a local church
    *Identify tools and establish a clear and simple course of correction: Here’s where we’re missing it, where we can evaluate, and where we can move on

  • Jesus Centered Youth Ministry

    There’s a surging hunger among teenagers for Jesus. New research shows that they want a clearer understanding of what Jesus really said and did, and how faith in matters in their lives. In fact, that desire is so deep, it’s #1 on their “wish list” for what they’d like to talk about at church.But are we doing that?

    Lesson 1: Searching for Answers
    Lesson 2: Understanding the Evidence

    About the film, in theaters nationwide on April 1, 2016:
    From the college classroom of GODS NOT DEAD to the public square in GODS NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?
    When a Christian teacher is asked an honest question about Jesus, her reasoned response lands her in big trouble. As the principal and superintendent join forces with a zealous civil liberties group, an epic court case could expel God from the classroom and the public square once and for all!

  • Skinny On Discipleship

    $6.99

    Life-shaping discipleship isn’t a random event. It’s an intentional adventure, and teenagers need someone who’s walking with them on the journey and helping them grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Jesus modeled this for us through relationship with his closest disciples. He spent time with them, shared life with them, taught them to obey, shared experiences with them, gave them direction, and promised to be with them. This is what we are called to as youth workers-the model for us to follow.The Skinny on Discipleship will become a practical guide in your role as a disciple-maker. You’ll discover practical insights and powerful encouragement for knowing Jesus, loving him, and placing him at the center of your life- and then helping teenagers along on that same journey. When it comes to discipleship, there are no shortcuts, there’s no handbook for teenagers, and there’s no timeline on what it will take to help each teenager draw closer to Jesus. But you can follow the model of Jesus, rely on the truth that he’s with you, and remember that ultimately he loves teenagers even more than you do.

  • New Breed : Understanding And Equipping The 21st Century Volunteer

    $16.99

    The world of volunteers has changed. But have you changed, too?

    Across the country, volunteer ranks continue to grow, but people are volunteering differently. They’re working online, seeking flexible schedules, and pursuing a role in defining how projects should be completed.

    Jonathan McKee and Thomas McKee have tapped into their decades of experience with the simple goal of helping you recruit, manage, and lead the new breed of volunteers. They’ll guide you to a clearer understanding of what today’s volunteers look like, how they want to get involved, and how you can most effectively attract, train, and unleash them within your organization.

    You’ll also discover a bounty of helpful resources to assist you, including job descriptions, applications, and interview questions; activities, icebreakers, and team-builders for volunteer meetings; community-building activities; and tips for board retreats and planning sessions.

    The 21st century calls for a new system and for a greatly expanded definition of what it means to be a volunteer. If you can harness this passion and potential, you’ll experience results that will reward both your organization and your volunteers.

  • Taking The Cross To Youth Ministry

    $12.99

    Think about sin and the cross—the way that salvation changes who we are and how God sees us. It’s a central part of our faith, and yet it’s one of the most confusing and difficult things to teach. Especially to a room full of teenagers. In Taking the Cross to Youth Ministry, Andrew Root invites you along on a journey with Nadia—a fictional youth worker who is wrestling with how to present the cross to her own students in a meaningful way. Using Nadia’s narrative, along with his own insights, Root helps you reimagine how the cross, sin, and salvation can be taught to students in a way that leads them to embrace a lifestyle that chases after Jesus, rather than creating teenagers who just try to ‘be good.’

  • On The Spot No Prep Games For Youth Ministry

    $5.99

    The phrase on the spot usually has negative connotations. Ever been put on the spot at work? Perhaps you’ve been called upon to offer an impromptu speech in front of a group of unsympathetic peers. Nothing brings on the flop sweat like being put on the spot.

    Well, we’re turning that phrase upside-down. Now on the spot is all about fun, not fear. It’s all about possibility, not panic. Are things dragging in your youth group meeting? You can fix that on the spot. Just choose a game from these pages and liven things up in an instant. Find yourself with a moment between activities, surrounded by a crowd of restless teenagers? Flip to a game in this book and turn that boredom into fun.

    On the Spot games are easy to lead and require no props (except for the occasional chair or items group members already have in their possession). In fact, these are so easy to use, you don’t have to plan ahead at all. (Thus, the whole on the spot theme we’ve been promoting.) The games in this book work well as crowdbreakers or time-eaters or just-for-fun-ers.

    You’ll be cheered as a hero for saving the day. Revered for your ability to “think on your feet.” (Okay, maybe “read on your feet” is more accurate. But it’s still a valuable skill worthy of reverence.) Or maybe you’ll just end up turning a down time into an up one.

    Forget the flop sweat. Have fun with your group instead. Right where you are. Right now.
    On the spot.
