Made (download)
By Kurt Johnston

How does God see us? Who does He want us to become? What does He hope to make us into? Scripture is full of word-pictures that give us a glimpse of how God sees He's MADE us. The key is our ability to see ourselves the same way. Junior highers are in a process, a process of becoming who God has already made them to be.
The End (download)
In this two-week sermon series, Josh Griffin bluntly, but appropriately, unpacks biblical truths about heaven and hell. We get one shot at life, and we face a vital question that will determine our destination after death: Will we choose to receive the gift of forgiveness and eternal life that's available through Jesus? If we say yes, we'll spend eternity in heaven in God's presence. If we say no, we'll spend eternity separated from God. It's that simple and that crucial.

Use this series to spark your teenagers' thoughts on what happens after death. The End will help them discover that death, in fact, really isn't the end—it's just the beginning.
Trinity (download)
When planning youth ministry sermons, it's sometimes tempting to shy away from deep theological topics. Why is there evil in our world? Why did God give Adam and Eve the choice to obey or disobey? Why does God permit boy bands to exist?

The Trinity can be a challenging topic to address, but this sermon series with Josh Griffin will help your students gain a clearer understanding of who God is——the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    Power of Sex (download)
    By Doug Fields

    This series tackles the difficult and often misrepresented topic of sex. Doug explores not just how students are assaulted by sexual messages, but how the choices they make will shape their entire lives.

    I Used to Rule the World (download)
    By Jeff Maguire

    Before Jesus was born, people could try to claim some sort of ownership of the world. But with His life, death and resurrection, the rules changed--Jesus powerfully showed God's plan for humanity. As believers, it's up to us to adjust to His rules to live a Christ-like life.

    This three-week sermon series is a great lead-up to Christmas, but can be used at any time through the year. Students will uncover the meanings behind some of Jesus' most powerful metaphors as they model their lives after the true Ruler of the world.

    How Not to Get Caught (download)
    By Doug Fields

However, you can use this 4-week series to show them that temptation itself is not the problem; it's their response to it that can either drag them down or build their character. Use this series to equip them with the tools they'll need to face their temptations and come out stronger for it.
    Good Sex (download)
    By Doug Fields

    This is a 5 week downloadable message transcript series. Included in this file are 5 Microsoft word documents containing the full word-for-word message transcripts and student outlines.

    We live in a sex saturated society. It's not how it used to be, Ricky and Lucy sleeping in separate beds, clothed from head to toe. The world, specifically media has blown sex up so big that your students have no idea that there are any standards, no idea that there are any consequences with sex. Our youth of today desperately need to hear that there are consequences, that sex was God's idea, and He created it to be beautiful. Teach this message at least once a year, and relationships in your ministry will be different.

    These youth group Bible lessons and sermons will lead your students closer to Jesus.
