For today’s freebie, I want to share with you a great resource provided by Youth Ministry 360. Recently, they released a short guide to writing Bible Studies for Teenagers called “The What? The Why? And How? Of Writing Bible Study for Teenagers.” I have already downloaded my a copy and have looked through it briefly. I am hoping to read through it more intently over the next few weeks.
This is a great resource for anyone who works with teenagers.Writing Bible studies can be a hard task, but with proper guidance can be a somewhat easy and enjoyable task. Andy Blanks, co-founder of Youth Ministry 360 says,
When it comes to Bible study curriculum, youth workers fall somewhere on a scale. On one end there are those youth workers who only teach curriculum they’ve purchased. On the other end are those youth workers who write all their own lessons. My experience is that the majority of youth workers fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum. Most youth workers will take a blended approach, incorporating a mixture of both self-written Bible study curriculum and off the shelf curriculum. Because of this, I wanted to pass along some thoughts on crafting your own Bible study lessons.
Andy has done a great job at providing great thoughts on how to develop a good Bible study for teenagers. I encourage anyone who is involved in teaching teenagers to download a copy of this guide and take some time to look through Andy’s thoughts. I am sure they will be of help to you.
