Changed : Real Lives In A Real World$3.69Add to cart
Changed is the the book you’ve been waiting for?and didn’t even know it! It’s a book about cold, hard realities (you might say R-rated). It’s not a work of fiction, because hearsay is not allowed in the court of life. Eleven writers testify about their lives and their truths; their messes and their messages. Read their stories and find out why it makes so much sense to give Jesus a try. Changed is targeted as a youth sharing book, and youth will certainly identify with these stories, but anyone who reads them will be moved and inspired.
Loving Them Back Leeading Them Home$19.50Add to cart
Why do they leave?
Is there anything the church can do to prevent them from turning away, or to bring them back once they’ve left? Is there anything I can do?
You probably know people who have left the church. Maybe you know why they walked away, but more likely you don’t. But you do care. And that’s why this book is in your hands.
Barry Gane explores the reasons so many young people decide to leave, considers the complexities of the adolescent mind, addresses the stages of faith development, and offers effective strategies for reclaiming missing youth.
A word of caution: Read this book only if you’re willing to take action. Wooing young people back to the church will cost you time and energy, and demand significant change-just as it did the shepherd Jesus told us about who braved the dark night to find one lost sheep
Scary Gross And Weird Stories From The Bible$19.99Add to cart
Most of the youth in your ministry undoubtedly know the familiar, likely Bible accounts. They’ve read them dozens of times. Adam and Eve in Eden, God calling Samuel, Esther’s courage, Saul’s transformation into Paul. Of course: these are amazing highlights from the story of God’s loving relationship with his people. But what about the unfamiliar characters? The unlikely accounts? Do your students know just how offbeat and uncomfortable some parts of the Bible can be? How terrifying? How….dare we say it…weird?
Scary, Gross , & Weird Stories from the Bible explores thirteen bizarre true stories with a can’t-look-away approach. Now, we understand very well that your teenagers probably won’t be shocked by what they find in these passages; they’ve become immune to drama and gore and the grotesque like no generation before. However, they may have never before associated any of that with God’s Word. In fact, their view of the Bible might run more along these lines: sterilized, predictable, safe, dull. So, here’s your opportunity to surprise them, shake the faith-dialogue up a bit, and guide them through some provocative, life-transforming experiences. Think of these thirteen decidedly non-safe stories as the back-alley accounts of the Bible…where God’s light often shines the brightest.
Your students will be surprised and intrigued by the strange things (and people) in these passages-but keep in mind that strangeness isn’t the focus. We’re not helping your students encounter weirdness for weirdness’ sake (or grossness for grossness’ sake-you get the picture). Instead, the goal of these unique encounters with unexpected, unsettling stories is solely to show your teenagers more of who God is…and, well, God is pretty unexpected and unsettling. Not too mention utterly creative. So creative, in fact, that he included a lot of head-scratching, cringe-inducing, and downright disturbing stories in his Word. And each one reveals something about God, and what it means to be in an intimate, redeeming relationship with Jesus Christ.
We’ve designed each of the thirteen studies in this resource to achieve that very purpose: to equip your students to really dig into fresh, startling Scripture passages…so they’ll be astounded by our extraordinary Creator and Savior, and moved to love and serve him with their lives.
