JESUS IS: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JESUS
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: JESUS IS GOD

SERIES OVERVIEW:

You’ve probably heard of Jesus. You might even think you know a lot about Him. We all have some idea of who we think Jesus is. We might think of Him as a nice guy, a great teacher, a carpenter, or a guy who could walk on water . . . but who is Jesus really? In this 4-week series, we’ll look at what other people have said about Jesus, along with some key moments in Jesus’ life and ministry and even Jesus’ own words, to help us see that Jesus is God, Savior, truth, and better than a best friend.

What’s your biggest struggle with the teenagers you lead? Are they disrespectful? Disruptive? Disengaged? Uncooperative? Are they not showing up or responding to your texts? It’s amazing how many problems can be solved with the same simple (but powerful) idea: relationships. This month, identify the student who is your biggest challenge and try this — focus on building a relationship. Spend time together, and see what happens! 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #9 from your Volunteer section.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!

We know you’re learning a lot about teenagers while you lead them, so we’d love to learn alongside you. What’s one thing you’ve learned this year that every volunteer should know?
