“My goal is to SEND out GOSPEL-centered, RELATIONAL students who make DISCIPLES on MISSION with Jesus.”

This blog is all about sharing the resources from my years in Student Ministry. There are 10 years, all 66 books of the Bible, all 13 major Christian doctrines, over 25GB’s of info, and over 5,000 files to be downloaded.

This “Youth Group Truth” blog is ultimately for pastors to students, youth ministers, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, Christian school teachers, teenagers and college students who are interested in learning more about a Christocentric view of Scripture and doctrine directed towards the lives of students. The blog is everything we cover in our student ministry as we’re going through the entire Bible and all of systematic theology in a way that is pointed directly to Christ and relevantly applied to the life of students.

In this blog you’ll mostly find written out sermons or lessons, mp3s of them, the powerpoint slides, the fillout sheets, the order of service, and sermon notes.  We go through the Scriptures in our Wednesday night student worship service, and we go through systematic theology.  You can also find other resources on this blog such as my random theological thoughts, strategies for student ministry, etc.  No matter what you’re web-surfin for, I hope this blog helps you grow closer to Christ and point others to Him more clearly.

Again, my goal is to SEND out GOSPEL-centered, RELATIONAL DISCIPLES who live on MISSION with Jesus.

The first way to accomplish this is by PREACHING through the entire BIBLE in a Christ-centered, Gospel-grounded, and life-changing way. Instead of just doing different “Power Chapters,” I really believed God was calling me to teach my students the ENTIRE Bible and point it ALL to Christ in the 6 years they were a part of our student ministry.

So I learned there are 1,189 chapters in all the Bible (from what they say). We preach on average 10 chapters at a time as we move our student through the Scriptures to preach Christ in all things. So we started with Genesis and we’re making our way to Revelation. Each sermon averages about 10 chapeters. Some sermons may be 1 chapter and some sermons may be 30 chapters. It just depends how the chapters and books flow together.

Each sermon does stand alone as its own call to follow Christ. Also each sermon stands in a mini-series as it fits into the context of its book. Lastly, each sermon falls into the big picture of the Bible as it is one small episode in the storyline of God exalting His Son as the Lord of the Cosmos.

Also, TEACHING through all of SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY  (the 13 major Christian doctrines) is extremely important for students to understand because it teaches the students how to think about every major doctrine and topic of Scripture (from understanding Jesus – the End Times). I like to teach  Systematic Theology 3 – 4 months out of the year, and Biblical Theology 8 – 9 months out of the year. Just like Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology also must be understood and connected in Jesus Christ alone. That’s how God intended it!

Below is our 7 year plan that will help you see how we preach through the entire Bible and all 13 major Christian doctrines to 6th – 12th graders.
