About Basecamp: Basics of the Faith

Use YM Select: Basics of the Faith to give your students a granite foundation as they explore the basic beliefs followers of Jesus have embraced for two millennia.

Students are engaged in life-shaping conversations about spiritual beliefs, in one way or another, all the time. But, of course, those conversations aren’t always happening at church. YM Select: Basics of Faith brings the conversation back into your ministry, and equips students to enter into their conversational culture with greater clarity and confidence. This 4-lesson series includes additional (optional) talks, a video-based lesson, and a creative teaching experience—all designed and tested to help students tackle their hard questions and equip them to live for Jesus. In addition, you get a mother-lode of graphics to help you promote and teach this series.

YM Select: Basics of Faith is the first of an exclusive line of teaching-series resources called YM Select. All teaching series in YM Select are designed to be experiential, relational, and focused on Jesus, while allowing you the flexibility to edit and change what you teach based on the dynamics of your youth group. Plus, YM Select fits into any budget.

Top Notch, Engaging Lessons

The lessons portion of YM Select: Basics of the Faith includes the following:

  • 4 primary, progressive lessons contained in a Word file (that makes editing/customizing lessons a breeze)
  • YouTube recommendations—Open the pdf, then click on the icon which will open the link to YouTube video options for lesson enhancement.
  • 1 video-based lesson package—“The Truth About Jesus” contains leader prompts, questions, and pause points for video

Plus, you get bonus content, including:

  • 2 “talk-based” lessons—outlines built around the topic of “An Introduction to the Bible”

A: On this product page, above the picture, should be a green tab that says "Download Sample". If you click on this tab, it will open a sample lesson for you to view. When that sample loads, please be sure to click on the file folder that says Sample Lesson. Then click on the Word Document "Connecting with Jesus". Please let us know if you have any difficulty with this sample.
