After praying our guts out we set up brainstorming groups, interviewed students, youth culture experts and youth workers around the world - from all of that we landed on a few initiatives (The Amazing Next Conference, Teaching Curriculum, A Gap Year Program, and more recently - Parenting Seminars, and a Generation514 Retreat - you can read more about all of that that here.)
Last October we gathered a group of thinkers, futurists, theologians, and writers and began the process of putting together teaching curriculum for youth groups around the world. See, we all know that students are living in a very complex world and our teaching must rise to the occasion and help guide them through the maze of culture's complexities, to engage students in a new and deeper way.
Well, so far we have put out a three months worth of teaching - each topic actually contains 5 full lessons - take a look at the different topics here.
I'm super excited at the fact that this third one just came out - it is called, A Dismissed Faith. It is our attempt for youth workers to have real authentic conversations with students about why many walk away from church and faith, but why the faith is worthy of giving your life to. We couldn't be more excited about this super relevant topic!
