    These lessons are amazing! Being the youth leader it can get a little tough to pick topics that will actually speak to this generation and these are full of fun but also the truth that Jesus wants us to preach about!

    My name is Maureen Kazibwe a Ugandan by birth and a christian who teaches the youth on christian values at Our Church called GLORY OF CHRIST CHURCH IN KAMPALA UGANDA.
    As you know, Uganda is a third world country with miminal approach to christian life. A country where people know less about God, because they are poor and see no reason to be happy with God. I would therefore you to invite me to USA and we share life experiences in the youth.
    And many more…

        Best thing to do is to wait till next time we launch the Huge Youth Ministry Bundle: Go to that link and put your email in to get on the waiting list. Other than that, your best bet it to get the Fall Bundle, but that sounds like you don’t want to do that… the only other option if you don’t want to wait until the Huge Bundle goes live again is to purchase each series individually. Hope that helps.

    These lessons are fun to teach and fun to experience. My youth enjoy it so much they are inviting every friend they can. I have had at least 1 or 2 new kids every Wednesday for the last 5 weeks. I just bought the mega huge bundle last month so I have Wednesdays covered for the next 3 and a half years. Keep up the awesome work you do.

    Hello – I am a pastor’s wife at a small rural church in Oregon, and I teach the youth class (ages 12-18+). I just wanted you to know I used your Father’s Day lesson yesterday (Sunday, June 18, 2017 – Father’s Day).

    When the lesson was finished, one of my very troubled teens, a young lady of 15 years of age, asked me to stay behind to talk. She opened up to me on her issues, especially regarding her biological father and her step-dad. I had long suspected that she had had problems with her Father(s), but she is very quiet and private. I have spent 3 years getting to know her and working with her. Something in the lesson reached her heart and for the first time, she shared her problems with someone. We ended up skipping the whole Sunday morning worship service – and as the pastor’s wife, I never do that. But this session with her was that important. While none of her issues are resolved, she is at least a few steps closer to learning to lean on the one who can heal her. She said she has never felt God was a father to her, but she is beginning to view Jesus as a sort of big brother.

    I just wanted you to know your lesson made an impact on this young lady’s life and I thank you for sharing it. Please keep doing what you are doing – you never know where God will use you. This week, he used you in a small, rural, unincorporated town near the Oregon coast in the hurting heart of one of my sweet teens. I have added your ministry to my prayer list and am asking God to bless you in a very special way.

    Do you have older series lessons that are still available for purchase that you don’t show anymore that were part of bundles? Im specifically asking about a series called The Good Life. I purchased a large bundle several years ago and have used it off and on with our groups as we get new kids and new years I go back to some of my favorites. We recently did this study and I have some other youth leaders that are interested in doing it with their groups. I would love to see if we can find away to get it to them. Im part of a network group with leaders from all over the country and told them about our group and this particular lesson and they are asking how they can get it.

    Re Order 10713
    I just downloaded the files and am having problems with the January series, New Beginnings. The lesson plan Word docs are empty. I tried downloading them again but it was the same. They are not opening and I can see that the file size is only 1kb so there is clearly no content. I also downloaded the Feb lessons for comparison and it is not the case for these, they are all complete.

    Could you resend us the Jan lessons?

    This is the link we used for downloading.
