WHAT WE DO FOR STUDENTS

Our teaching curriculum, small group Bible study curriculum & events help you accomplish these 4 goals for students.

01

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

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

02

BIBLICALLY ROOTED

In each of our small group Bible study 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 Bible study series, we’ve created a strategic path to discipleship for your students. Each small group Bible study & teaching series focuses on key components of what it means to become a fully devoted followers of Christ.

YEAR 1: SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY CURRICULUM

youth ministry small group bible studies

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

All our small group Bible study 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 Bible 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.

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
