What do small group leaders need? Good Bible studies that engage their kids. The purpose of this book in the Studies on the Go series is to provide small group leaders with creative and engaging Bible study questions they wont have to rewrite. Students will be pushed, encouraged, and challenged, but the real goal is that they would be changed. Laurie Polich-Short has designed Matthew for the busy youth worker who either lacks the time or the information to lead a quality Bible study. Without skimping on depth and substance, Laurie has constructed down to earth questions that get kids into the text and so they can hear Gods Word on a practical level. Each consecutive passage of Scripture sets a topic to help students think deeply, talk openly, and apply what they are learning to their lives.

Thriving as an Introvert in Youth Ministry

Share this postFacebookTwitterLinkedinPinterestemailThe youth pastors of the 90’s and early 2000’s were Wild West gunslinger types, shooting from the hip, often seen as the stereotypical wild card in every staff meeting and pastoral gathering.

He was quite proud of the fact that his students were able to use bible dictionaries and perform original language word studies. He spoke to our youth pastors’ network for over an hour about how we…

Let ‘Em Speak

Share this postFacebookTwitterLinkedinPinterestemail  Sometimes we can be overly protective of our pulpit/lectern/podium/music stand/stack of old shoe boxes and somehow get the idea that we are the only ones who can talk to our youth.
