    WHAT MAKES OUR SMALL GROUP SERIES UNIQUE?
    50% TEACHING & 50% DISCUSSION

    All our small group series are discussion based. Each lesson is 50% reading the Bible/teaching and 50% student discussion. They’re not 90% teaching and 10% discussion, like our other youth ministry series and small group studies you’ll find elsewhere.


    The goal is for students to talk about the Bible, what it means to follow Jesus, their questions & doubts, what God is doing in their lives, and so on. This format encourages group interaction, personal application, and keeps students engaged. Getting students talking about their faith is the secret sauce to a small group, and all our series are formatted with that goal in mind. 

    The format is simple, but effective: 

    • Read a passage of Scripture.
    • Make a point that students will remember.
    • Ask questions and discuss it.
    • Repeat 3-4 times per lesson.

     

    THREE KEY COMPONENTS

    Help students become Biblically rooted, provide a strategic path to discipleship, and give them the opportunity to form God-centered relationships.

    Biblically Rooted

    The Bible, like the roots of a tree, bring life, nourishment and stability to your students’ lives. Scripture deepens their relationship with God, gives them the wisdom to make good decisions, brings clarity to the problems they face, and so much more. In each small group series, students dive deep into a book of the Bible, which will firmly root them in God’s Word and provide a foundation to build their lives upon.

    Strategic Path to Discipleship

    We’ve created a strategic path to discipleship. Each small group series focuses on key components of what it means to follow Jesus. Discipleship is the never-ending process of loving God and serving others. As students learn and grow in their walk with God, their thoughts, actions and lives are transformed. Throughout these 52 weeks, students will go on a journey to discover what it means to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

    God-Centered Relationships


    These small group series provide students an opportunity to develop God-centered relationships with others. As we read throughout the New Testament, discipleship happens in the context of relationships. The goal is to create an environment where students: know others and are known; accept others and are accepted; love others and are loved; and pray for others and are prayed for. We’re intentional about helping them grow in their relationship with God and others.
