The teens in your group live in a time of lightning-fast change but the spiritual disciplines that equip them to thrive in a culture addicted to speed haven't changed one bit. Daily communication with God (also known as prayer) and time spent in His Word are an unbeatable recipe for steady growth in erratic, unpredictable times. Prayer and the Devotional Life, the newest addition to the Uncommon youth curriculum series created by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, helps you introduce these essential disciplines to your students. Twelve sessions of youth-friendly Bible study will get your students thinking and talking about the importance of spiritual practices, and guide them to make praying and Bible study part of their daily diet! You can also download reproducible student handouts and additional options for every session to tailor each study to your group's unique needs. Find out how inside! Book jacket.
Teens today are busier than any previous generation in history. Between soccer practice, study groups, music lessons, dance or karate class, constant texting and social networking, and occasional schoolwork, it’s amazing kids have time to breathe, much less connect with God in a meaningful way. Yet without daily one-on-one time with their heavenly Father, spiritual growth is stunted.
Now youth leaders can help the teens in their group prioritize prayer and quiet time. Uncommon: Prayer and the Devotional Life, part of a series of high school group studies and resources developed by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, gives leaders a roadmap for guiding their group toward daily connection with God. Using these action-packed, fun activities and insightful tips for deepening dialog, youth pastors will have their teens sharing the ups and downs of their spiritual lives in no time.
