This small book packs a big punch. Here’s some of what’s inside:

  • 4 weeks of biblically solid daily devotionals
  • Highly interactive daily activities designed to keep you engaged
  • Important articles dealing with key issues of a NEXT-level faith

If you’re reading this, chances are at some point in your life you became a Christ-follower. You knew that you were a sinner and that your sin separated you from God. You learned that Jesus paid the once-and-for-all price for your sins, making peace between God and  you. And in faith,  you accepted His sacrifice on your behalf. At some point this happened to you. And it was amazing. The problem is that for many of us, our stories don’t go much further than this.

What if you could take your faith to the NEXT level? What if you-not your parents, not your grandparents, and not your youth minister-had the most ownership in your faith life? And what if there were a book that helped you know exactly how to do this?

NEXT will help you begin to lay the foundation of a faith that will last long into your adult life. NEXT will help you know hwy it’s so important to own your faith. It will also help you think about your purpose and influence, as well as equipping you to practice the NEXT level habits necessary to grow a meaningful faith. If you’re serious about your life as a Christ-follower, NEXT is for you.

What’s in it for me?

You’ve probably heard this witty comeback at some point in your ministry. Savvy seekers exploring the idea of faith often will not commit whole-heartedly without this question being answered.

Temper Tantrums

Have you ever seen those pictures on the internet of a child throwing a temper tantrum? It’s usually a picture of a screaming child with a caption like, “I wouldn’t let him eat his sock” or “She’s mad she can’t fit in the cat’s bed.” Young children can’t process the necessity of complex (or even…

Joshua’s Big Audacious Prayer

I recently finished up studying through the book of Joshua. While reading through this book, I found myself spending a little extra time contrasting chapters 9 and 10. I found the words of Joshua 9:14 to be very sad, “but they did not seek the LORD’s counsel.” As a Christ-follower, we should always seek the…

The Throne of Grace

Growing up my childhood was very dysfunctional. I didn’t know just how dysfunctional until I became an adult. As a teenager I found myself completely lost, heading in a destructive direction. This is why I love that the Biblical word for lost doesn’t mean dammed or doomed, rather it means misplaced; not in the place…

At Youth Specialties we are always on the lookout for ministry resources that are excellent. While we love our own products we fully recognize that there are fantastic resources available to youth workers that aren't published by YS.
