Lesson 1: Who is the Holy Spirit?
Big Ideas: The Holy Spirit is God living inside of us and is our advocate, helper, and counselor. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, produces good fruit in our lives, and helps us spread the good news of Jesus.
Bible: Galatians 5:22-23, Acts 1:8, John 16:5-7, John 16:8, John 14:26, Romans 8:26-27, 2 Corinthians 1:21-22, Ephesians 4:21-24

Lesson 2: Jesus, the True Vine
Big Ideas: Being a Christian is about staying in a close love relationship with Jesus. Without Jesus, we can’t produce good fruit in our lives.
Bible: Galatians, 5:22-23, John 15:1-5, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Hebrews 10:25, Mark 10:45, 2 Timothy 3:16

Lesson 3: Good Fruit, Bad Fruit
Big Ideas: The Holy Spirit points out the sin that produces bad fruit in our lives. He guides us to Jesus, who removes the sin when we turn towards him. As we walk with Jesus, the bad fruit in our lives is removed, and good fruit grows in its place.
Bible: Galatians 5:19-26, John 15:13, Psalm 32:11

Lesson 4: The Fruit
Big Ideas: This lesson takes a look at each fruit of the spirit individually: Love, peace, patience, joy, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.
Bible: Galatians 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Romans 5:1,3-5, Ephesians 4:2, Colossians 3:12, Galatians 6:10, 2 Corinthians 5:7, 1 Corinthians 9:25, Hebrews 11:1

50% Teaching & 50% Discussion

All our small group Bible studies are discussion based. Each lesson is 50% reading the Bible/teaching and 50% student discussion. They’re not 90% teaching and 10% discussion, like 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 and doubts, what God is doing in their lives, and so on. 

This format encourages group interaction and personal application, and it keeps students engaged. Getting students talking about their faith is the secret sauce to a small group, and all our small group Bible studies 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.


Our Bible studies 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, brings 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 Bible study, 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 Bible study 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 each Bible study, students will go on a journey to discover what it means to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

God-Centered Relationships

Our Bible studies 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.


Small Groups
If your youth group has more than 12 students, then use our curriculum as a tool to disciple students in a small group setting.

Does your church have an active Sunday School program? Our curriculum is a good fit for you.

Small Churches
Does your youth ministry have less than 12 students? Our curriculum is specifically designed with you in mind.

Great Resource!

I've just started teaching Sunday School for High School and have spent several weeks looking for a curriculum that is Biblically sound and engaging, something that encourages my teenagers to really dig into the Word. I already had it on my mind to teach the Fruits of the Spirit and found the Ministry to Youth website. After reading their statement of faith and downloading some sample lessons, I was ready to give it a try and I'm so glad I did! The lessons are in-depth and focus on the Bible, not opinion. They are organized in such a way that it brings a better understanding to what many of us have read or heard several times. I love it and will be purchasing a year-long bundle.
