This sermon kicked off our series through September on the doctrine of Jesus simply called “The Jesus Series.” This sermon was also our Parent Party where we invited all the parents of our students to join us for this Wednesday night of worship. On this night, we proved from Scripture that Jesus truly is God and what that means for our practical lives as parents, teenagers, etc. Continue reading →
Quin Shipp finished up our series on Sharing Your Faith with a sermon Deuteronomy 8. His bottom line: “When we remember what the Lord has done for us, it motivates us to share Him with others.” In other words, the Gospel is our ultimate motivation for sharing the Gospel with others.

Everyone uses a filter for their pictures on Instagram. In the same way, everyone sees life through a filter. Its important to first identify your filter, and then change your filter to make sure you’re seeing life correctly. “Jesus became our curse so that He could be our blessing.” Continue reading →
Everyone has those people in their lives to whom it seems impossible to witness. This sermon is designed from God’s Word to teach us how to share the Gospel with those who are skeptics. “When they ask you about His rules, tell them about His rescue.” Continue reading →
This study by Liberty Students is about the Number’s narrative when the spies went to check out the Promise Land. In the same way, God has given us glimpses in His Word to check out our eternal Promise Land. Continue reading →
5 years ago, God put a passion on my heart to get students involved deeper in discipleship. Today, God has matured that passion to see students become disciple makers.
If our goal for students after graduate is for them to attend the church or be discipled, those goals are too short-sighted. Jesus’ goal for His disciples (who were probably teenagers) were to be disciple makers. Our goal for our students should be the same.
In the past 5 years I’ve read many books, had countless conversations, discipled many students, and have watched students make more disciples. I have a long way to grow in my understanding of disciple making, but I wanted to pass along this resource to Student Pastors, Leaders, Ministries, Parents, and even students for those longing to see Jesus’ Great Commission come about in and through the lives of our students.
Christian Romano is Liberty Students first year-long Minister in Residence. Even though Christian is still in college and working at Chickfila on the weekends, he is making a tremendous impact on our student ministry team and in our middle school ministry. I’m honored to post his article to my blog.
Have you ever asked yourself why you are currently doing all the things in your life right now? Whether it is going to school, working, or hanging out with a certain group of people. Well these were and sometimes are questions that I ask myself. My name is Christian Romano and I am 21 years old living in Hampton Roads VA. I have four brothers and two wonderful parents. Currently I work at my Church as a Minister in Residence which is a pastor in training and I love my job. I am also a full time student and I know that this is the season of life that I am in right now but one question that I am constantly asking myself is why am I doing this right now? Why should I continue doing the same thing every week? The biggest thing that I have learned during this stage of life is what the “Why” is behind what I am doing. What I mean by this is what is the purpose or reason I am working two jobs, living in Hampton Roads and why am I in school. Continue reading →
Leviticus doesn’t have to be the book where devotions go to die. It wasn’t written to bog us down or bore us to death. The purpose of Leviticus to point us to Jesus and grow us in the Gospel. Follow along and listen to Liberty Students’ latest message from Leviticus called “Law And Order: The Priests” from Leviticus 8-10.
Everybody knows Leviticus is where devotions go to die. The book is a devotional killer. Many Christians have committed to read through the whole Bible, but get discouraged, bogged down, and dried up by Leviticus.
At Liberty Students, we want our teens to not only be able to faithfully read through Leviticus, but we want them to LOVE LEVITICUS. If you ever wonder how to read through, teach through, or lead through Leviticus, you will love our series called Law & Order. Continue reading →
