  • 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.

  • Stories Jesus Told Teen Bible Study Book

    $21.00

    If you’re human, you love a good story. Whether it’s a novel, a film, or a song, we are products of the narratives that have formed us. We’re made up of stories we’d like to forget, as well. If you’re looking for fresh inspiration, or stuck living under the weight of a story you can’t shake off, the Parables of Jesus can form who we are and reveal more about God than we ever thought possible – and they’ll provide the hope we’re all looking for, speaking above all the other noise we are experiencing.

  • Philippians Teen Bible Study

    $14.99

    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.

  • 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.

  • TruthFilled Teen Girls Bible Study Book

    $14.99

    “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” -Colossians 3:16a

    Many of us want God’s Word to dwell richly in us, but life can get in the way.

    We’d never intentionally write chapters of confusion, failure, loss, pain, conflict, or suffering into our stories. No one plans to wrestle with her identity in Christ, to struggle to love those most important to her, to feel lonely or helpless. Yet we often find ourselves in these seasons, struggling to embrace the hope we need.Join Ruth Chou Simons in this 7-session study of the Book of Colossians as she leads girls through a practice of preaching gospel truth to themselves by studying Paul’s example. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us. In today’s culture, there’s no shortage of self-help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill us up and satisfy us fully.

  • 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.

  • Defined Teen Girls And Young Women Bible Study Bible

    $14.99

    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.

    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.

  • Alongside : Loving Teenagers With The Gospel

    $15.99

    You don’t have to look too far for evidence that teenagers and young adults are struggling in our world. A changing culture, the ways social media connects (and alienates), the difficulties of starting a career, and so many other reasons that students struggle to know God, themselves, and their place in this world. There are many different explanations for why teenagers and young adults struggle, but one thing they all have in common is a desire to be loved. Students today are hungry for love. If the gospel is the greatest love story ever told, how do we come alongside to share it with our young friends? Sharing the gospel is far more than sharing information. It’s opening up our lives and sharing our souls. It’s unveiling our longings, fears, and joys. It’s inviting others into our mess and being willing to step into theirs.

    This book will inspire and direct you in coming alongside the students in your life, whether you are a parent, youth pastor, youth group leader, grandparent, coach, or teacher. If Jesus has come alongside you, you can bring Jesus to the young people in your life. Alongside gives readers the insight, tools, framework, and inspiration to share Jesus and your life with students and to communicate the gospel by your actions and your words. With students, as with all of us, the word and deed of the gospel must go hand in hand.

    -Experienced youth pastor and long-time Young Life leader gives clear direction on sharing the gospel with teens
    -Readers will be invited to understand the world that students live in, to hear their cries for help, and given practical strategies for coming alongside them

  • Gods Not Dead 2 Student Study Guide

    About the film, in theaters nationwide on April 1, 2016:
    From the college classroom of GODS NOT DEAD to the public square in GODS NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?
    When a Christian teacher is asked an honest question about Jesus, her reasoned response lands her in big trouble. As the principal and superintendent join forces with a zealous civil liberties group, an epic court case could expel God from the classroom and the public square once and for all!
