  • Words Of Life Youth Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    $12.99

    Nearly everyone has heard of the Ten Commandments, the list of thou-shalt-nots found in the Bible. Jesus saw these commandments not as onerous burdens, but as guideposts to help us experience a good and beautiful life.

    In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history. He considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving thou shalt. He also explores how the latest research in science and psychology illuminates these commandments, rightly understood, as a way of ordering one’s life beautifully in the present day. In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Adam Hamilton’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12. Continue Reading Words Of Life Youth Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

  • Chasing Love Teen Bible Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.00

    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. Continue Reading Chasing Love Teen Bible Study Book (Student/Study Guide)

    Girls will discover how God’s steadfast love is better than life (Ps. 63:3) as Caroline leads them through an in-depth study of Psalm 63, teaching them to consider the context, observe, interpret, apply, and delight in God’s Word.

  • Prodigal Son Teen Bible Study Book

    $19.50

    Is following Jesus really worth it?

    At some point, we have all questioned our faith. We’ve asked questions like: Is Christianity worth it? If we go all-in following Jesus, will we miss out on the best life has to offer? But what makes us ask these questions in the first place? Why are we so tempted by the allure of a life outside of God’s will? Thankfully, Jesus addressed these questions through the well-known parable of the prodigal son from the Gospel of Luke.

    In this story, we meet a young man who demands his inheritance then wastes it in a far off country away from the watchful eye of his father. When he finds that the world and its pleasures do not deliver on their promises, he determines to return home to his father.

    In this Bible study, Pastor Matt Carter walks through the parable verse by verse, showing that true life is never found in the far off country, but rather the best life is found in the love of our Father.

    The Prodigal Son Teen Bible Study Book includes printed content for eight small group sessions, personal study between meetings, applicable Scripture, How to Use This Study, leader guide, and other features. Continue Reading Prodigal Son Teen Bible Study Book

    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 Guys And Young Men Bible Study Leader Kit (Teacher’s Guide)

    $83.50

    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.

  • Wrestling With Rest

    $24.00

    Busyness is a sickness of the soul that affects many today-and it is especially detrimental to young people, who are finding their identity shaped by ongoing resume-building, constant digital communication, and unceasing activity. The last thing they have time for is rest. But rest-Sabbath-is necessary for youth, not just because of who they are socially, emotionally, and physiologically, but because of who God has made them to be and wants them to be.Nathan Stucky shows that rest challenges youth whose identities are rooted in productivity, efficiency, achievement, and accomplishment. For them, the notion of Sabbath grace both appeals and disorients. Yet through the Sabbath, God invites young people into an identity rooted and grounded in the grace, life, and provision of God. Wrestling with Rest offers biblical and practical advice for helping youth to discover their God-given identity, in which they can truly find rest. Continue Reading Wrestling With Rest

  • Show Her The Way

    $18.25

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

  • Skinny On Discipleship

    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.

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. Continue Reading Skinny On Discipleship

  • Grow Down : How To Build A Jesus Centered Faith (Student/Study Guide)

    $6.99

    What do you want to be when you grow up?

    That might be one of the worst questions anyone could ever ask a teenager. Our society pushes you to grow up, to stand on your own two feet, to chase after meaningless pursuits. But what if there was a better way to grow, a better path to follow, a richer life to lead?

    Grow Down is built around the idea that there is a better way to grow: by rooting yourself through a life centered in Jesus. Using Colossians 2:6-7 as a backdrop and a tree as a visual, this book envisions a generation that chooses to be un-adulterated. That’s the priority for author Ken Castor, who has worked with teenagers and young adults for more than 20 years.

    Like a tree, a follower of Christ must root deeply into Jesus, find all nourishment to stand strongly through life in him, and then naturally impact others with fruit and shade, protection and life-breathing air. As you grow down into Jesus, you’ll draw up the resources you need to stand through any pressures, and then you’ll overflow with an abundance of life that this grownup world so desperately needs.

  • Ministering To Gay Teenagers (Revised)

    $8.99

    When it comes to ministering to gays and lesbians, far too many churches have chosen silence over service, or a reactive stance over proactive involvement. But congregations must abandon their comfort zone and minister to a group of people who need to experience the love of Jesus in powerful, tangible ways.

    With truths drawn from his own personal experiences, youth pastor Shawn Harrison seeks to equip youth workers, parents, and churches in ministering to gay teenagers, their families, and the gay community at-large. The church must not compromise truth, he says, but it should not withhold grace either. How gay students first encounter God-personally and communally-and how Christians react to them can determine subsequent steps in their faith journey.

    Ministering to Gay Teenagers is filled with wisdom and practical advice on how to respond when a student comes out and how to help the teenager’s family through that journey, too. This book will equip leaders and parents with solid answers to the questions families ask. And it will challenge youth workers and churches to consider how to practically serve and minister to a group of people who seek deep authenticity in love, character, truth, and presence.

    Ministering to Gay Teenagers was originally published in November 2012. This edition is revamped with approximately 80% new material incorporating wisdom the author has since learned, in addition to valuable feedback received from his youth ministry peers.

    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.
