* Equip your teens to embark on a 10-week journey to the very heart of the Christian life! Using film, personal experiences, conversation, and group explorations, this engaging curriculum guides kids to deny themselves, pursue Christ, become disciples, share and defend their faith, act shrewdly, love their enemies, and do justice. Designed for teenage or adult leaders. 112 pages, softcover from Group.
Teenagers are smart. Insightful. Eager to embrace truth. And when they're challenged with the hard words of Jesus, they don't run away...they thrive. These 10 engaging sessions draw kids deep into God's Word - and deeper into their faith. Deeper into Jesus.
Video recommendations, experiences, great conversations, and group explorations engage teens in topics that matter while tapping into their curiosity and sense of adventure. Designed so that an adult or teenager can lead a group--or several people can guide different portions of the expedition. Low prep!

"Teenagers are tired of the mission-less life they've been handed, and they're hungering for something more--something hard-but-good. I love that, and it's why I created these studies. They're the "tough things" of the Christian life that are actually the joys of the Christian life. I've led all of these sessions in a variety of settings--small groups, retreats, Sunday school, and larger gatherings."
