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…
This is an amazing tool, god blessed me by leading me to this website. I am starting a youth group at my middle school so I can bring everything I have and learn at church to my school to bless kids the same way it blessed me thank you for this website bless all of you?
It’s really very useful lessions for youth.i need free download sessions
I have already purchased the bundle but I cannot find where to sign in. It’s been a while since I signed up, but was never able to log in.
Greetings and blessings,
Do you have any VBS for youth and/or preteens? TIA!
We do not at this time, but we do from time to time have VBS closer to the summer.
My chruch no longer has a youth group so me and a few friends in the group have started running our own group/bible study every wendsday. this has helped us plan our lessons. thank you all for providing these they have been a major help!
Tommy, that’s awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Best thing to do is to wait till next time we launch the Huge Youth Ministry Bundle: https://ministrytoyouth.com/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…..so 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.
James, that’s really cool man. 1-2 new kids every Wednesday night…keep up the great work! Glad we could be a part of what God is doing in your youth ministry!
Thank you. These scripture references really help. I’m 18 years old, and I’m a newly bible class teacher. I teach ages 3-8. I will use these in my lessons. All I want to do is effectively teach the kids about Jesus. So thank you again.
That’s awesome…so glad we could help!

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.
Carolyn, wow that is really an amazing story. Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a note about the impact of that lesson! So glad that God moved in her life. And grateful for you for being there to talk, listen and pray with her!!

Hi I’m Ruth from Philippines, I’m a beginner as a youth leader in our church. My heart is in this ministry that’s why I keep on looking for resources where I can easily teach them Biblical lessons and get their interest as well. I’m more that blessed to find this site. Thank you and God bless all of you!
Hi Ruth, We are so happy to hear that our site is such a valuble resource for your ministry.
Could you please do a lesson plan on Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity ?
Hi Mary, Thanks for the feedback and we will consider your idea. God Bless!
Thank you for your free lessons, as mother, wife and full-time employee, sometimes it’s difficult to sit down and study to create lessons for my youth. Your lessons save me plenty of time and my youth loves the lessons and have learned and grown so much this year. Thank you, God bless and continue to bless us with your lessons!
Damaris, we are so glad to hear how these lessons are a blessing to you. You are very welcome!
OH MY!!! You have NO IDEA what a God-send this is to me!!!! After 20 years of youth ministry, I was just burnt out and done. I have begged and pled for someone else to take over, but no one was willing. Not willing to see the youth forgotten, I have endeavored to trudge on.
This is like a breath of fresh air! Inspiration indeed! Thank you! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!!
Sara, that’s awesome! So cool. Thanks for sharing!!!
Changing jobs and need to update new email address. Please add new e-address to your list.

Hi Rod, We will change that for you. Thanks for letting us know!
After a 7 year hiatus from being youth group leaders, my husband and I have been asked to lead at our new church. We were so hesitant and really had to pray about it. Finding these free lessons on line was such a Blessing!!! We are doing what we are called to do, our purpose! These lessons are AWESOME. The students love the games and the lessons create such amazing discussions! We teach 13 years and older, perfect lessons for this group. Thank you for all you do and all of the hard work that is put into these lessons!
Tareena, This is so awesome to hear! We wish you all the best and will be praying for your ministry!
I just wanna thank you for the youth lessons and ideas you have provided, i’m new in the youth ministry, not only have the ideas and lessons helped me but they are of great teaching for me as well…
Now i look forward to teaching and sharing with my youth what i have stumbled upon, thank you again for the insight. May the good Lord continue to bless you and everyone around you
You guys have saved me! Thank you so much!
Sydnee, we are happy to hear that is lesson was such a great blessing to your ministry!
This is amazing, I’m leading a start up youth group part-time and the group has no allocated funds, these teachings will be very helpful. Although I noticed it was intended for a younger group, my group is older but it will work just fine. I’m excited to share this.
Thank you and God bless you
Thanks for the feed back and we hope you guys enjoy the lessons!
Do you guys have anything on water baptisms ?
Hi Fer, as of now we do not. I will let the writers know that someone is interested in a series on this subject.
I ordered a package last week and it was never emailed to me. However, y’all were quick to take $ out of my account. What gives? Contact me since I cant find a way to contact you please. Thank you.

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.
Hi Jenny. Thank you for your comment.
We are so glad that you and other leaders enjoyed this series. Unfortunately, we have discontinued it.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

would love a lesson that deals with Suicide. From all angles. I love these lessons. We use them and recommend them to everyone.
Dusty, unfortunately, no we do not have a lesson on suicide. But seems like a really great topic for us to consider. Thank you.
Could you please write up a lesson on grief & loss. Also one on abuse?
I rellly like it
