HOW IS OUR JUNIOR HIGH CURRICULUM UNIQUE?

TRANSITION & CHANGE

The junior high years are defined by transition. They undergo drastic amounts of change in all areas of their lives: spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, etc.


In our curriculum, we do all the heavy lifting to help you address these unique changes and help students wrestle with their faith and discover what it means to love and follow Jesus.

ABSTRACT & CONCRETE THINKING

Concrete thinking is a rigid, black and white understanding of the world, one without nuance and paradox. Abstract thinking involves perspective, self-awareness, nuances, paradox, etc. It's realizing that life isn't black or white, but a rainbow of colors.

As a part of their natural development, junior high students are moving from concrete to abstract thinking. But it’s not a linear straightforward process. Instead, over a period of time they flow in and out of concrete and abstract thinking. And some students are further along in the journey towards abstract thinking. This is all perfectly normal, but can be tricky for a junior high leader wanting to reach all students with the message of Jesus.

When teaching 6th-8th graders, it’s important to speak to both concrete and abstract learners in the group. As students begin to see the world through the lens of abstract thinking, they see their faith in a new light. It’s your job to help guide them through the process of figuring out what it means to love and follow Jesus in a complex world that isn’t black or white.

For students who are still in the concrete thinking stage, it’s important to communicate complex and difficult spiritual truths in memorable and easy to understand ways.

That’s what makes our junior high curriculum unique. Each lesson speaks to both abstract and concrete learners. We help you land big ideas in concrete ways and help abstract learners wrestle with the nuances of life and what it means to follow Jesus.

INTENTIONAL

You get one year of strategic junior high curriculum. We give you the tools needed to intentionally lead a thriving junior high ministry and become a more organized, prepared, confident, relaxed, and creative leader.

  • Organized and Prepared - You have an entire year of junior high lessons at your finger tips. We do all the work upfront coming up with a well thought out and intention scope & sequence to help students become full devoted followers of Christ.

  • Creative - You can give 100% of your focus on making our lessons your own.

DISCIPLESHIP

Junior highers are questioning and wrestling with their faith. They're trying to figure out what it means to love and follow Jesus on their own, independent of their parents and in light of the many developmental changes they're experiencing.

Throughout the year, students will go on a journey to discover what it means to take ownership of their faith and become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Great for church regulars

This is a great curriculum for students who grew up hearing the bible stories. I have a mixed group of raised in church and never heard of it before. This is not the curriculum for them.
