Between the internet, satellite tv, a sexed-up culture and easy access to drugs and alcohol, many teenagers find it almost impossible to walk the straight and narrow-even though most students in your group want to! /br> You can help by showing how to strengthen their mental and spiritual defenses-and Resisting temptation, part of the Uncommon Youth curriculum series created by veteran youth minister Jim Burns, is a good starting point. Twelve sessions of youth-friendly Bible study will get your teens thinking and talking about avoiding sexually tempting situations, rejecting the false promises of drugs and alcohol and discerning the media's mixed messages.
The teens are faced with tough choices every day--choices that have real consequences, whether positive or negative. So how can youth ministers help them make healthy decisions? Youth ministry veteran Jim Burns has developed Resisting Temptation to equip leaders with the tools they need to guide the discussion. Using these action-packed, fun activities and indispensible tips for starting crucial dialogue, youth pastors will have their teens talking in no time. UNCOMMON youth resources help uncommon teens make uncommon, healthy choices.
