Last week, we gave away two big freebies…
Be sure to download them if you haven’t already.
I also mentioned last week that our mission here at Ministry to Youth (this website) is to save youth ministry leaders TIME and MONEY.
The youth group lessons and games we create help you save time because you don’t have to create them from scratch.
They save you money because a lot of the lessons & games we create are FREE.
But as I mentioned before, they’re not free for us to create.
Which brings me to the CIRCLE OF AWESOMENESS.
Let me explain.
Here’s how the “Circle of Awesomeness” works:
#1. We create free youth group lessons and games to save you time and money.
In order to make sure they’re awesome, we pay a team of youth ministry leaders to create them.
In addition to paying these writers, there’s also A TON of overhead we have to cover each month.
In fact, it cost several THOUSANDS of dollars a month for Ministry to Youth to operate.
I know it probably doesn’t seem like it, but there’s a lot of “behind the scenes” costs to keep everything running smoothly, and to reach the most youth ministry leaders possible.
Our expenses include paying for a really fine-tuned email communication system ($500-$700/month), sponsoring posts on Facebook so we can reach more youth ministry leaders ($750-$1,000/month), a customer service/operations manager ($1,000+/month), shopping cart ($300-$500/month), website applications  ($500+/month), and the list goes on. Seriously, that’s just some of our expenses.
Our website requires a budget, similar to how a youth ministry needs a budget to be effective.
In order to pay for those expenses…
2. We also create youth ministry lessons and games to sell online.
Our paid resources are bigger and better than our free stuff. Here are a few reasons why:
Awesome Artwork. Each series includes a cover image that you can use for promotional purposes and to insert into your presentation software. Each series also includes a blank text image to make your own slides (just add text) and insert into your presentation software.
Series Format. All our free lessons come in the form of a series. There’s a theme to each series, and each lesson/message builds on the prior week.
Bigger, Better Lessons. All our paid lessons are longer, bigger, and better than our free ones. Yep, we go over the top to make sure they’re the best ever.
“All-In-One” Lessons. All our paid lessons include a fun opening game, a complete Biblical message, and small group questions. They’re great for big or small youth groups.
Plug N Play. Another awesome thing about our paid lessons and games is that everything is done for you! All your midweek/weekend services (or even small groups) are now done. Nice. You have all the resources you need to have an awesome youth group service (or class, small group Sunday School, etc). Just take a little time making it your own…and that’s it. Pretty cool.
When it comes to our paid lessons and games…we still want to save you money.
So, we periodically put together a bundle of resources.
3. A few times a year we put together A HUGE BUNDLE of youth ministry lessons and games.
In fact, we’re about to release the Huge Youth Ministry Bundle this Friday at 12pm noon Eastern U.S. time.
For only $99, you get over $1,300 worth of youth ministry resources.
Save 156 hours a year and get a discount of $1,200 (90%+ savings) on nearly years of youth group lessons and games.
More time and money so you can more effectively point students to Jesus.
We’re giving away some seriously awesome prizes for the first who order the bundle on opening day.
The first to order the bundle gets a $100 Amazon gift card, and the second to order gets a $100 ANYWHERE gift card.
We’ve giving away tons of other prizes too.
Once the bundle goes live, it only lasts for 7 days.
4. The huge bundle funds all our expenses. 
About 80% of the revenue we generate in a year comes from the Huge Youth Ministry Bundle.
It enables us to cover all our expenses, create more free stuff, and reach more youth ministry leaders with our resources.
The huge bundle fuels everything.
So, think about it.
Even when we’re selling something, we’re still saving you TIME and MONEY.
And when you purchase the Huge Youth Ministry Bundle, you’re actually investing in the creation of more free lessons and games. You’ll benefit from these freebies, and so will thousands of other youth ministries.
You’re helping us reach, resource, and equip more youth ministry leaders around the world.
You’re helping us create more youth group series and games to sell online, which will also help you save even more time and money.
You’re helping to create the “Circle of Awesomeness”.
How awesome is that?
I think it’s pretty cool.
And there’s one more thing to consider…
Right before we release the Huge Bundle, we make sure to give away a TON of free stuff.
It’s just a big part of our philosophy.
We want to provide a huge amount of value to you, whether you purchase something from us or not.
We want to always GIVE more than we ever ASK of you.
That's why we released these other two freebies - 6 New Youth Group Lessons & 54 Youth Group Lessons. By the way, if you haven't yet donwloaded them click the links at the top of this page.
If you like all our free stuff, then you’ll love our paid stuff.
So, be sure to mark your calendar for when the Huge Youth Ministry goes live on Friday at 12pm noon Eastern U.S. time.
You’ll want to be one of the first to order and grab some of those sweet prizes.
See you on Friday :)
Nick Diliberto, Ministry to Youth
