The Secret to Discipling Teenagers is Jesus
The relationship students develop with Jesus during their teenage years will shape the rest of their lives, which is why your job as a youth pastor is so important. This small-group curriculum will help students encounter Jesus every week and influence a future generation of leaders whose passion for Jesus will transform others from the inside out.

We’ve begun a new series focusing on the theme “Friends and Family.” For the next three weeks, students will study different passages of Scripture to discover the powerful, life-giving exchange that happens in relationship with God and with people he’s given to us to share life with.
In this first lesson, we looked at Genesis 2:4-25 and Genesis 3:1-11, where God is in relationship with Adam and Eve. Through his perfect love, God gave the first couple everything they needed. Even when they disobeyed his command not to eat the fruit of one tree, God pursued them and brought them out of hiding. God desires to engage in authentic relationship with us, as well, and he wants to be at the center of our relationships with others. God’s perfect love provides all we need, and together we can trust him.
This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these questions:
What might it have been like to live in a garden that God created for you, with everything you needed to enjoy life with God? How can trust and honesty build relationships? How can a lack of trust and honesty destroy relationships? When have you relied on a person so much that you began placing your trust in him or her instead of in God? How did you begin trusting in God again?
Thanks for all your prayers for our students and our ministry. Have a great week!
