WHAT WE DO FOR YOUTH LEADERS

You get one year of strategic and intentional youth ministry done for you, saving you time and money. You also get 6 training sessions for the entire youth ministry team (for volunteers and the point leader).

01

STRATEGIC YOUTH MINISTRY

One year of strategic youth ministry totally done for you! We give you the tools needed to intentionally lead a thriving youth ministry and become a more focused, confident, organized, prepared, relaxed, and creative leader.

No more...

  • Winging it week-to-week or month-to-month.
  • Struggling with creativity.
  • Getting stuck in a teaching rut.

Become...

  • Focused on the big picture and a little less on the details. Youth ministry is made up of tons of elements, but the big picture is discipling students and connecting and creating memories with them that impact their entire lives. We give you the resources to make it all happen.
  • Confident - because you’re well prepared for youth group a year in advance.
  • Organized and Prepared - because you have everything you need (teaching series, small group series, events & volunteer training) to lead a strategic youth ministry a year in advance.
  • Relaxed - because you have removed the stress of preparing each week.
  • Creative - because you can give 100% of your focus on making our lessons your own.

02

SAVE TIME

We do all the heavy lifting and give you everything your youth ministry needs for an entire year. Includes: 52 teaching lessons, 77 small group lessons, 4 youth group events and 6 training sessions (one every two months) for youth ministry leaders and volunteers.

We estimate it would take over 400 hours a year to create all that on your own from scratch. If you take two weeks off per year, we save you an average of 8 hours per week!

Less time on preparation and planning means more time for everything else, like:

  • Building relationships with students, volunteers, and parents.
  • Less pressure to come up with weekly teachings, small group lessons & events throughout the year.
  • Spending quality time with your own family.
  • No more feeling like you aren't putting your best foot forward due to time constraints.
  • You can slow down the pace of ministry, which gives you the ability to stay in youth ministry for the long haul. 
  • You're balanced - More self-aware, present, connected to God, better relationship spouse/kids, etc.

03

GROWING LEADER

You get 6 training sessions for the entire youth ministry team (for volunteers and the point leader). Trainings are held every two months.

These 6 training sessions give you and volunteers the opportunity to connect and grow together as leaders. They'll:

  • Encourage, equip, and support volunteers.
  • Get everyone on the same page.
  • Provide a path to onboard volunteers into your youth ministry.
  • Help the team dig into the areas your ministry may be struggling and determine how to move forward together.

WHAT WE DO FOR STUDENTS

When using our Exclusive Youth Ministry curriculum, students are less likely to:

  • Disconnect - Discipleship encourages Biblical teaching to move from head knowledge to their hearts.
  • Be unclear about what it means to live out their faith.
  • See bits and pieces rather than the big picture. They will understand what it means to be on a faith journey.
  • Walk away from their faith (now & as adults)
  • Feel isolated, alone, and/or never experience real community.
  • Experience disappointment due to lack of spiritual leadership (lack of intentionality)

Why?

  • Because you have a strategic plan to help students develop a strong relationship with Jesus that is developed through Biblical teaching and is encouraged by God-centered relationships.
  • Those elements are woven throughout teaching series, small group series and events.

OVERVIEW OF WHAT WE DO FOR STUDENTS

Our teaching series, small group series and events help accomplish these 4 goals for students.

01

STUDENTS WHO DON'T KNOW JESUS COME INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

You know that the most important decision students can make is to surrender their lives to Jesus and begin to follow Him. There is a hole inside all of us that only an authentic relationship with God can fill.

We've strategically placed in the scope & sequence teaching and small group series that unpack what it means to surrender to and begin to follow Jesus. This concept is also an undertone throughout all our series.

Students will have a solid understanding of who Jesus is, why he died on the cross, the significance of the resurrection, etc. They'll have a firm grip on how those big ideas apply to their lives, and be given opportunities to choose to follow Jesus.

02

BIBLICALLY ROOTED

The Bible, like the roots of a tree, bring life, nourishment and stability to your students’ lives. Scripture deepens their relationship with God, gives them the wisdom to make good decisions, brings clarity to the problems they face, and so much more. 

In each of our small group series, students dive deep into a book of the Bible, which will firmly root them in God’s Word and provide a foundation to build their lives upon. 

Each of our teaching series focus on one of these 3 major Biblical themes: KNOW (foundations of your faith) , GROW (becoming more like Jesus & growing in your faith) and GO (sharing your faith and leading others by living it out).

03

STRATEGIC PATH TO DISCIPLESHIP

Through our teaching and small group series, we’ve created a strategic path to discipleship for your students. Each small group & teaching series focuses on key components of what it means to follow Jesus. Discipleship is the never-ending process of loving God and serving others. As students learn and grow in their walk with God, their thoughts, actions, and lives are transformed. Throughout these 52 weeks, students will go on a journey to discover what it means to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

04

GOD-CENTERED RELATIONSHIPS

Our small group series, teaching series, and events provide students an opportunity to develop God-centered relationships with others. As we read throughout the New Testament, discipleship happens in the context of relationships. The goal is to create an environment where students: know others and are known; accept others and are accepted; love others and are loved; and pray for others and are prayed for. We’re intentional about helping them grow in their relationship with God and others.

SAMPLES

TEACHING SERIES SAMPLE: SETBACKS
Here is a free lesson, based on John 16:33, from our new series, The Comeback. The big idea of the lesson is: Setbacks can lead to discouragement, fear, and a desire to give up. But God can use setbacks
as an opportunity for your greatest comeback.

SMALL GROUP SERIES

youth ministry small group bible studies

WHAT MAKES OUR SMALL GROUP SERIES UNIQUE?
50% TEACHING & 50% DISCUSSION

All our small group series are discussion based. Each lesson is 50% reading the Bible/teaching and 50% student discussion. They’re not 90% teaching and 10% discussion, like our teaching series and small group studies you’ll find elsewhere.

The goal is for students to talk about the Bible, what it means to follow Jesus, their questions & doubts, what God is doing in their lives, and so on. This format encourages group interaction, personal application, and keeps students engaged. Getting students talking about their faith is the secret sauce to a small group, and all our series are formatted with that goal in mind.

The format is simple, but effective:

  • Read a passage of Scripture.
  • Make a point that students will remember.
  • Ask questions and discuss it.
  • Repeat 3-4 times per lesson.

You get a total of 77 small group lessons (19 series), which is actually more than a year's worth! That way you can pick & choose the small group series that best fits your group.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

WHAT YOUTH MINISTRY LEADERS ARE SAYING

"I enjoy purchasing series from Ministry to Youth for my students. The lessons give me a great base to build from or just use what is there if I am in a pinch. The graphics are top notch and games are provided if that's your ministry model. Always great stuff!!" - Brad Boucher

"The outlines, lessons, artwork with these weekly sessions are truly a God send for those of us with full time "other than ministry" obligations yet wanting more for our students each week. Thank you for such quality products at very affordable costs." - Kevin Hale

"Our youth ministry has recently been using their material and it's been wonderful. Great lesson plans which are biblically sound. Good game ideas, great artwork. So blessed by your ministry. Thank you!" - Vidush Athyal

"I love the lessons from Ministry to Youth. It takes the stress out of preparing a lesson and gives me more time to focus on our students." - Jessica Lewis

"This was our first purchase and I can’t wait to start using this on Sunday mornings! Takes a lot of pressure off of us for prepping each week and it is very spot on for the circumstances we are living through currently. Thanks for the special offer!!" - Libby Allen

"This has helped me so much with ministering to the Youth in our Church. The games before the lessons are easy and great to do and the lessons are to the point. It has made my life as a new Youth leader so much easier and our youth are loving it. I would recommend to anyone. It is worth the price!" - Aline Rodrigues

"We have a group of around 10. These lessons let us interact with our youth. We teach, they talk, and everyone walks away knowing more about Jesus. I love that if I wanted to, I could hand the lesson to a leader and they could have a great night with almost no prep." - Heather Lennox
