RESOURCES FOR YOUTH DISCIPLESHIP

Bible roller coaster

A Bible overview, using the ups and downs of a roller coaster, in under ten minutes. Enjoy!

My colleague Jack Percey and I have put together a booklet to help young people (and adults!) develop good habits in their Bible reading and prayer.  It's not rocket science but it gives a mass of ideas for things to pray for and ways to read the Bible.

Download it FREE below.

Raising the Bar prayer and Bible reading

Our young people are loving the Swedish Bible study method at the moment. There are lots of ways of doing it that you can find online but we've produced a simple bookmark which young people can leave in their Bible to help them engage with the Bible for themselves.

If your young people want to learn some Bible verses, why not give them a verse a week?

 

Or just give them a top 50 Bible verses to learn?

 

Not sure where to start? Here are my suggestions. If 50 is too easy, go for 100!

Why not encourage your young people to check out soul survivor watford's weekly podcast?

Great Bible teaching from Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft to encourage and challenge you.

 

youth Struggling to read the Bible?

Give your youth a challenge - the Bible in One Year.

 

Impossible?

Not really. It'll take about 20 minutes a day.

We've found a couple of the youth group here have just read through the Bible from start to finish: one doing an hour and a half a day until she finished it. One student here read it in six days because they had a quiet week!

Too much?

Then encourage your young people to just do the New Testament readings. They will read through the New Testament in one year. That's pretty good.

CHECK OUT ON TIKTOK

I have not checked every post and they may not be to your taste, but I think some of your young people will find their content helpful.
