Here is a free lesson, based on John 16:33, from our 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.



My name is Nick Diliberto. That's my wife, Jena, and I at Pizza Port near our house. And yes, I have a mouthful of pizza. Ha ha ha :)

After 15 years of serving in full-time ministry, in 2014 I launched Ministry to Youth.

The goal from day 1 was to save youth ministry leaders time and money. This bundle is one way we do that.

We save you time because you don’t have to create lessons and games from scratch. Less time on preparation and planning means more time for everything else, like building relationships with students, volunteers, and parents.

This bundle saves you over $1,900, which helps to stretch your youth ministry budget even further. Take the money you save and re-invest it into other areas of your ministry.

EVERYTHING IS DOWNLOADABLE. After purchase, you'll be directed to the download page and get an email that includes a link to download all the resources. Feel free to share the download link with volunteers. The bundle is only available as a downloadable product.  

FOR YOUTH MINISTRY. The resources included in the bundle are written to be used with 6th-12th graders. 

LESSONS AND GAMES COME IN PDF & WORD format so you can edit as needed and share with volunteers.

SERIES ARTWORK includes cover image for promotional use and blank text image for making your own presentation slides.  

ALL OUR RESOURCES ARE WRITTEN BY YOUTH LEADERS like you who have a heart to see God move in the lives of students.  

LESSONS INCLUDE A FUN OPENING GAME, CREATIVE TEACHING, AND ENGAGING SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS. Although the lessons aren't meant to be read word for word (we encourage you to make it your own), included is a detailed script for leaders to follow.  

OUR STUFF IS TOP NOTCH. We don't just throw together an outline or rough draft and sell it to you. Our writers take a lot of time and effort creating quality youth ministry resources that are jam packed with more than enough teaching material. Then our content, editing, and graphics team make it even better.



"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


Here are some reasons you might think the bundle is not for you:


View our statement of faith here. All our lessons are theologically broad enough for all church denominations (and non-denominations). We stay central to the core truths of Christianity and don't focus on denominational differences.


Here are a few reasons it is extremely helpful to use youth group lessons/games that are already created for you:  

Reason #1 - You need a break from the grind.  

Many of you lead Wednesday night and weekend services, which requires you to come up with at least 2 messages each week. Some of you are in charge of small groups and/or Sunday School as well. The grind of creating that many messages/lessons/games every week can wear you down. So, it's nice to have youth group lessons, games and series at your fingertips when you need a break from the grind.  

Reason #2 - Use the already created lessons as the foundation of your messages.  

The idea of using lessons already created for you doesn't mean that you read a script. Take some time to make it your own. Customize it and add your own creativity. Add what God is speaking to you and your students.  

At the very least it's really helpful to use an already made lesson's main idea, Bible verses, series flow, etc., as the foundation of your messages. Sometimes coming up with all that takes the most amount of your time. We've already done that for you.  

Reason #3 - You need ready to go lessons for your team and/or volunteers.  

Many of you have a team of volunteers, staff, and/or interns. It is often difficult for them to come up with their own lessons/games on a regular basis. It would be helpful to have already made lessons to give to them. They're ready to go lessons your team can spend minimal prep time on. Nice.  

Reason #4 - Artwork is already done.  

All our youth group series include artwork. Both the cover image, and the blank text slide. Use that artwork to post info about the series on social media, website, student outlines, presentation software, etc. If you created your own artwork, you would spend a good amount of time doing so. Or you would have to pay someone else to do it. Either way, we've got it all done for you...saving you time or money. 


We certainly know what it's like to be on a shoe-string budget. Instead of focusing on the cost of the bundle, look at how much you're saving - YOU SAVE 95%. And think of all the cool stuff you're getting for such a low price. You get 4 years worth of lessons and games worth $2,026 for only $99, which adds up to only pennies a day. That's an amazing deal! If you put your mind to it, I'm sure you can figure out a way to make that small investment in your youth ministry.  


Even though we live in a digital world, you might be a bit apprehensive about not actually getting physical products. We get it. The upside of downloadable resources is that you get them instantly and can share them right away with your volunteer team. And if you experience any download issues, then contact Kate at and we'll be happy to help you.


We're a team of experienced youth ministry leaders who have a heart to equip youth leaders around the world. Being a youth leader isn't easy, and we exist to make your job easier. Learn more about us here.
