  • Everyday Theology Teen Girls Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world. And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at your church. It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions. It’s for the big and little, the exciting and mundane. Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence.

    In this 8-session study, teen girls will explore the essential doctrines of Scripture, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, humanity, salvation, the church, and the end times to know God more deeply through these foundational truths.

  • Isaiah Teen Girls Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    Have you ever left a church service, youth event, or Bible study determined to do better-to pray more regularly, be more compassionate, or serve God more? Desiring change in our lives isn’t a bad thing; we just have to guard against relying on our own human effort to bring about spiritual changes.

    That determination springs from a longing to grow spiritually and know God better. As we embark together on a study of the prophet Isaiah’s biblical book, we will discover a simple but life-changing truth: Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting God more.

    Isaiah served as God’s mouthpiece to the nation of Judah but also to the surrounding nations. His message echoes into our lives today as we read his call to rely on the Lord. Using the genres of poetry, narrative, and prophecy, Isaiah communicated clearly that followers of God could trust in Him. I can say with my mouth that I trust God, but my stress, worry, and lack of peace don’t always evidence this kind of faith in real life. Isaiah was human just like us, and yet he radically trusted God and called to anyone who would listen to do the same. His message highlights freedom from captivity and light breaking through darkness for those who would heed his words.

    As we handle the chapters he wrote-from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come-we have an incredible opportunity to let go of striving and grow in trust. Unpacking Isaiah’s words will reveal that we can trust God more than our own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. We won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. Out of that trust, I believe we will find comfort and peace to sustain us.

  • Youth Ministry As Mission

    $20.99

    Equipping youth ministers with the tools of a crosscultural missionary

    The parallels between ministry within youth culture and global missions have long been touted by youth ministry experts, yet few resources exist to help youth workers benefit apply the insights of missiologists. In Youth Ministry as Mission, Brian Hull and Patrick Mays fill this gap with an introduction to missiology, missions practice, and missionary witness tailored especially for a youth ministry context.

    Youth ministers will discover missiological language that not only describes realities they face regularly, but also provides practical cross-cultural activities that translate well to youth ministries. Hull and Mays address issues such as these:

    *Avoiding ethical relativism while understanding historical and methodological changes in missions

    *Translating stories and practicing storytelling as preparation for witnessing

    *Training for witness in a multi-religious context

    Youth Ministry as Mission will be a valuable guide for college and seminary students but will also be a breath of fresh air to those already working as youth directors and youth ministers.

  • Gospel On The Ground Teen Girls Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    Jesus never traveled outside of a 100-mile radius from where He was born, yet His name is spoken in every corner of the earth. The Gospel on the Ground is the story of how Jesus’ message of hope and reconciliation spread from Jerusalem and how it’s still spreading like wildfire today.

    Taking Jesus’ last words here on earth before He ascended into heaven, “… you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) seriously, Jesus’ first century church grew despite intense persecution and difficulty.

    Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland as she unpacks the life of the early church in the Book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. We’ll explore the call of Jesus to His disciples then and to us as His disciples today, the way God’s Word can sustain us even in the most difficult of times, and the transformative grace that we experience as children of God in His kingdom of celebration.

  • Different College Experience Teen Bible Study Book

    $18.25

    For many, the college experience is defined by drinking, sex, impulsive decision-making, and a journey of self-discovery. It’s packaged as a consequence-free zone to have the “best time of your life.” But the reality is that what happens in college doesn’t stay in college. There are real, lasting consequences to your decisions.

    You don’t have to have that kind of college experience. The gospel tells us there is another way.

    Join student ministry leader Ben Trueblood and college pastor Brian Mills in this 4-session Bible study as they provide a biblical and practical guide for how you can have a fun, joy-filled, and spiritually enriching college experience.

  • Philippians Teen Bible Study

    $21.00

    As disciples of Jesus, we have been given the great responsibility of stewarding our influence for the glory of God. We were created to think, dream, and lead at the feet of Jesus. Leadership is, then, cultivated under the overarching purpose of discipleship. This is why leadership doesn’t begin with action, but rather identity – not with what we can accomplish, but rather what Jesus has accomplished for us. In this study we will dive into Paul’s letter to the first church ever planted in Europe. A closer look allows us to glean the transformational ideas that successful leaders have embraced, both past and present.

    In this 7-session Bible study, students will learn from Student Leadership University Vice President, Brent Crowe, as he examines the life and leadership of the apostle Paul, exploring twelve key elements of Christ-honoring leadership. Students will begin to recognize their own leadership potential, understand what it truly means to lead others, and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.

  • Hes Where The Joy Is Teen Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    The Trinity.

    Does just hearing that phrase make your eyes glaze over and your mind begin to reel? Are you paralyzed, afraid someone will ask you to explain who or what the Trinity is?

    It’s easy to believe that the Trinity is such a lofty and mysterious idea it’s not even worth your time to try and grasp it. But God wants you to know Him and He reveals what might sometimes seem like intimidating doctrines of faith through His Word and the power of the Holy Spirit.

    As you grow in your understanding of the Trinity, you’ll deepen your intimacy with God. In He’s Where the Joy Is, you’ll see that drawing closer to God ushers you into more peace and abundant life than you imagined possible-in His presence you’ll find fullness of joy.

    In this seven-session study, Tara-Leigh Cobble carefully and biblically pulls back the curtain to help you get a clearer view of the Trinity. You’ll look at the Trinity as a whole and examine each of the Persons of God individually-Father, Son, and Spirit. You’ll see how knowing God in His three-in-oneness transforms how you relate to Him. A richer understanding of who God is will begin to inform everything about the way you make peace with your past, live in the present, look to the future, and interact with others.

    What you learn about God will shape you for the rest of your life. He’s waiting to delight you with who He is.

  • Heart That Grew Three Sizes Youth Study Book

    $11.99

    We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. If we’re being honest, there’s probably something within the Christmas season celebration that awakens a Grinch within all of us.

    In his new Advent study, Matt Rawle explores the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas including how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate, is the one thing that changes our life?

  • 3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager

    $19.99

    Today’s teenagers are the most anxious, creative, and diverse generation in history–which can make it hard for us to relate. And while every teenager is a walking bundle of questions, three rise above the rest:
    – Who am I?
    – Where do I fit?
    – What difference can I make?

    Young people struggle to find satisfying and life-giving answers to these questions on their own. They need caring adults willing to lean in with empathy, practice listening, and gently point them in the direction of better answers: they are enough because of Jesus, they belong with God’s people, and they are invited into God’s greater story.

    In this book, which is based on new landmark research from the Fuller Youth Institute and combines in-depth interviews with data from 1,200 diverse teenagers, Kara Powell and Brad M. Griffin offer pastors, youth leaders, mentors, and parents practical and proven conversations and connections that help teenagers answer their three biggest questions and reach their full potential.

  • Words Of Life Youth Study Book

    $12.99

    Nearly everyone has heard of the Ten Commandments, the list of “thou-shalt-nots” found in the Bible. Jesus saw these commandments not as onerous burdens, but as guideposts to help us experience a good and beautiful life.

    In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history. He considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt.” He also explores how the latest research in science and psychology illuminates these commandments, rightly understood, as a way of ordering one’s life beautifully in the present day. In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Adam Hamilton’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.

  • End Of Youth Ministry

    $39.99

    What is youth ministry actually for? And does it have a future? Andrew Root, a leading scholar in youth ministry and practical theology, went on a one-year journey to answer these questions. In this book, Root weaves together an innovative first-person fictional narrative to diagnose the challenges facing the church today and to offer a new vision for youth ministry in the 21st century.

    Informed by interviews that Root conducted with parents, this book explores how parents’ perspectives of what constitutes a good life are affecting youth ministry. In today’s culture, youth ministry can’t compete with sports, test prep, and the myriad other activities in which young people participate. Through a unique parable-style story, Root offers a new way to think about the purpose of youth ministry: not happiness, but joy. Joy is a sense of experiencing the good. For youth ministry to be about joy, it must move beyond the youth group model and rework the assumptions of how identity and happiness are imagined by parents in American society.

  • Prodigal Son Teen Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    Is following Jesus really worth it?

    At some point, we have all questioned our faith. We’ve asked questions like: Is Christianity worth it? If we go all-in following Jesus, will we miss out on the best life has to offer? But what makes us ask these questions in the first place? Why are we so tempted by the allure of a life outside of God’s will? Thankfully, Jesus addressed these questions through the well-known parable of the prodigal son from the Gospel of Luke.

    In this story, we meet a young man who demands his inheritance then wastes it in a far off country away from the watchful eye of his father. When he finds that the world and its pleasures do not deliver on their promises, he determines to return home to his father.

    In this Bible study, Pastor Matt Carter walks through the parable verse by verse, showing that true life is never found in the far off country, but rather the best life is found in the love of our Father.

    The Prodigal Son Teen Bible Study Book includes printed content for eight small group sessions, personal study between meetings, applicable Scripture, “How to Use This Study,” leader guide, and other features.

  • Walk Youth Study Book

    $11.99

    How do we walk with Christ–daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him? In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life.

    In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church.

    In each chapter, Hamilton explores one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Adam Hamilton’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.

  • Grace Of Les Miserables Youth Study Book

    $11.99

    Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables is a truly epic story. Whether you’ve tackled the 1,400-page 19thcentury novel, witnessed the Broadway musical (and memorized its soundtrack), or seen the several screen adaptations of it, you already know the power of its story.

    In the six-week Lenten study The Grace of Les Miserables, author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story–grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope–each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. As these imperfect and relatable characters interact, we can see how these ideals work together (perhaps even in spite of each other) out in the world.

    In keeping with his previous works, Matt Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the iconic story and musical and our Christian calling, inspiring us to both understand our faith and live it out in the world.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Matt Rawle’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.

    $11.99

    In 1741, John Wesley preached his famous sermon titled “The Almost Christian” in which he encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly. We should not be satisfied with being almost Christian but rather strive towards being altogether a Christian.

    In Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience, author and pastor Magrey deVega leads a group of authors to explore how we can make the same commitment to Christ during Advent, connecting our Wesleyan heritage with the traditional Advent themes of Love, Hope, Joy, and Peace.

    In this book, perfect for Advent, deVega and the other authors break down the barriers that prevent us from experiencing an “altogether” love, hope, joy, and peace in Christ in our lives and in the world around us. They demonstrate the promises God offers to us that makes those longings a reality, inviting us to claim those promises for ourselves this Advent and celebrate an altogether Christmas.

    This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in the book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.

  • Defined Teen Guys And Young Men Bible Study Leader Kit

    $83.50

    Who Are You?

    When you introduce yourself to someone for the first time, you may start with your name, where you go to school, a sport or instrument you play, or your future plans. Each of those may help our culture define us, but are they enough? There are bigger questions culture can’t answer: “Who am I?” and “Why do I matter?” But first, you must answer, “Who is God?”

    Scripture teaches that we’re all made in the image of God. We don’t define ourselves-the Creator does. Once you begin to understand who God is and what it means to be created in His image, you’ll begin to discover all God has called you to be. This Bible study will examine spiritual truths from the Book of Ephesians to lead you into a closer relationship with God and a better understanding and appreciation of your God-given identity-which is fulfilled in Christ.

    Defined Teen Guys’ Bible Study Leader Kit includes a Bible Study Book and one DVD with eight 15-minute video sessions. The videos include a promotional segment and teaching sessions featuring authors Stephen and Alex Kendrick. The Kit also includes codes for access to digital video downloads and additional resources from Wordsearch Bible.

  • Defined Teen Girls And Young Women Bible Study Bible

    $13.99

    Who Are You?

    I am who God says I am.
    I can do what God says I can do.
    I can become exactly what God says I can become.

    You are a miracle. And that’s exactly what this study is about–your true identity. Who you really are. The culture will try to define you, your past may try to label you, the enemy will seek to deceive you, but no one has the authority to give you your name–your identity–except your Father. And He says that your uniqueness is an expression of His creative genius and is designed to reflect His glory.

    Join Priscilla for eight weeks and begin to understand what it means to be created in God’s image and recreated in Christ’s image as His masterpiece. Once you discover who God says you are and the spiritual inheritance that you have, you can start walking in your true identity as a daughter of the most high King.

    You’ll spend your whole life either trying to be and become something you were never meant to be, or discovering who you are in Him and living up to that standard by the power of His Spirit within you.

    You are His!

    And you were created for the purpose of reflecting God’s light to the world.

    Like all of God’s miracles, your life will leave a lasting impact if you’ll simply be yourself, surrendered to God, molded by His Spirit, and on mission for Him.

    Defined Teen Girls’ Bible Study Book includes content for eight sessions, personal study between group sessions, applicable Scripture, “How to Use this Study,” tips for leading a group, and a leader guide.

  • Exploding Stars Dead Dinosaurs And Zombies

    $19.99

    Many things threaten the faith of youth today, but none more than science. The commitments of science and Christianity seem to be at odds-science makes truth claims based on experiments and proofs, while religion asks for belief and trust. But Andrew Root demonstrates that, in fact, the two are not incompatible.Root, a renowned expert on adolescent spirituality, shows how science overstates its claims on truth, while faith often understates its own claims. Both faith and science frame the experience and reality of teenagers, and both have something valuable to offer as adolescents develop.Drawing on a fictional account of a youth pastor and the various students he encounters, Root paints a compelling picture of how faith can flourish, even in our scientific age.

  • What Makes A Hero Youth Study Book

    $11.99

    What Makes a Hero? offers us an image of what it looks like to be victorious over trials and temptations. Looking at pop culture heroes and others through the lens of faith, Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. In keeping with his theme “Pop in Culture,” the book examines how good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and overcoming adversity are fundamental to how Christians understand salvation. Heroes help us discern the good, fight for what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives. Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory story-one obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero? This Youth Study Book takes the ideas presented in Matt Rawle’s book and interprets them for young people grades 6-12.

  • Brief Guide To Ministry With LGBTQIA Youth

    $19.00

Designed for congregations that currently have a theologically and biblically affirming stance toward the LGBTQIA community, this unique resource provides insight and practical advice for tough questions like:

    How does an affirming stance toward LGBTQIA people affect the day-to-day experience of teenagers in a church setting?
    In what ways can a church’s youth ministry have a positive impact on the lives of LGBTQIA youth who want to fully live out their Christian faith and their gender identity?
    How can a pastor, youth minister, or youth ministry volunteer embrace, nurture, and provide skillful care for LGBTQIA youth in a congregation or community?

    A glossary of terms to use when talking about LGBTQIA issues and a list of national and location resources that can be used to support LGBTQIA youth are included.

In fact, that desire is so deep, it’s #1 on their “wish list” for what they’d like to talk about at church.But are we doing that? Even though we assume that everything we do in youth ministry is about Jesus, the evidence is clear:That’s not what our students say they’re experiencing. So what would a youth ministry look like if it shifted toward a passionate, persistent, and permeating focus on drawing students into a closer orbit around Jesus?Inside the pages of Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry, you’ll discover the foundation for a ministry that is Jesus-centered, along with the bricks for building it. You’ll discover that not only is it possible to create this kind of ministry, it’s also essential that you pursue this path.Eight years after his book was first published, introducing the language and structure of a new way of doing youth ministry, author and longtime Group Magazine editor Rick Lawrence has completely rewritten and revised Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry. It’s packed with new insight, new research, and dozens of field-tested ideas for planting and nurturing a ministry environment that is Jesus-magnetic.Help satisfy teenagers’ hunger for Jesus in richly nourishing and sustaining ways by shifting the orbit of your ministry.
