A COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM TO GROW YOUR Students AND YOUR MINISTRY

Grow students

Grow Your Youth Ministry

In student ministry, we all want to grow. We want to grow in numbers, sure. But we want to grow in depth and effectiveness, too. It’s not easy to grow a ministry, though — especially when you’re trying to grow both deep and wide.

Grow Curriculum works online and in-person!

Misplaced priorities

Grow helps you focus on the things that produce long-term spiritual growth.

A lack of strategy

If we want to grow in depth, or in numbers, or in effectiveness, we need to think in long-term strategies, not short-term fixes.

A lack of systems

Without specific systems in place, our strategies will never become a reality.

Real Lives Being Impacted

What Church Leaders Are Saying.

We love small church youth ministry leaders!

Grow is created by and for student ministry leaders of all church sizes and contexts, but we especially love our friends at smaller churches. If you’re serving in a small church, here’s how Grow is built specifically for you.

Easy to prep

Grow’s weekly curriculum is super easy to prepare and uses supplies that are easy to find (and affordable too)! With everything else on your to-do list each week (and limited support to make it all happen), we’ve worked hard to make every week of Grow easy to prep and easy to use.

Easy to customize

Each week of our curriculum is packed with ideas and instructions for activities, videos, images, object lessons, and more. With so many options, you can easily choose the ones that work best for your group, or just use the curriculum as-is! It’s flexible to fit your needs and resources.

For Small Churches.

We Love Small Churches!

One of the most important small-church-friendly features of Grow Students is our weekly Teaching Guide! Our curriculum doesn’t assume you’re on a stage preaching a sermon to a large audience. Instead, it’s interactive, scalable, and discussion-driven, and ready to be taught in whatever classroom, living room, or circle of chairs your youth group usually meets in!

On-line, In-person or Both.

Grow Curriculum is as easy to use online as it is in-person! We even created an Online Guide to Youth Ministry, that’ll show you how to adapt every aspect of Grow for an online environment: the planning resources, teaching resources, games, discipleship activities, volunteer and family resources, and even the events. In each area of ministry, we’ve given you three options to help you choose how much time and energy you want to invest.

On top of our Online Guide to Youth Ministry, every single series and resource inside of Grow come with “Online Hacks” to help you use Grow online, in-person, or both!

Frequently asked questions:

CAN I CUSTOMIZE GROW TO FIT MY CONTEXT?

Absolutely! That’s kind of our #1 goal, actually. We want Grow Youth Ministry Curriculum to work for you, no matter your size, your format, or your calendar. To make it super flexible for you, we . . .

  • Give you editable files in Photoshop and Microsoft Word.
  • Leave space for your logo on any resources you’ll give to students, parents, or volunteers.
  • Provide an entire year of content up-front so you have plenty of time to plan ahead, see what’s coming, and switch up our suggested calendar to fit your needs.

 

HOW IS GROW DIFFERENT FROM OTHER YOUTH MINISTRY CURRICULUMS?

Well, for starters, Grow isn’t just a curriculum. It’s actually a strategy for your entire ministry. The large group and small group conversations are just one part of that strategy. With Grow, you’ll get a complete annual TEACHING strategy, but you’ll also get a whole year’s worth of resources for DISCIPLESHIP, PROGRAMMING, EVENTS, VOLUNTEERS, and FAMILIES.

But if you want a little more information on how Grow compares to other resources, check out the samples we’ve provided by clicking here!

 

WILL GROW ACTUALLY WORK IN MY CONTEXT?

We sure think so, and we are working hard to make sure it will! That’s why we’ve assembled an incredibly diverse team of writers and contributors to help us create a resource that is truly flexible enough to work in your context . . . and that actually represents the full Body of Christ. Our team is filled with real church leaders doing real ministry in a variety of contexts. Rural, urban, and suburban churches. Small churches, medium-sized churches, and big churches. They represent a variety of denominations, cultures, and ministry styles. Thanks to their help and feedback (and yours!) we think Grow really is flexible enough to fit in your context.

 

HOW DO SUBSCRIPTIONS & RENEWALS WORK?

When you purchase a subscription to Grow Curriculum, you are purchasing 12 months of Teaching and Resources and we recommend using it for the full 12 months no matter when you start. It doesn’t matter what month you start using Grow, it’s meant to be flexible and fit your calendar no matter if you start in the Fall when school starts, January when the new year starts, or any other time of the year. Your purchase date becomes your renewal date, which means every year (if you choose to continue to use Grow) on the date you first purchased Grow, you will be charged for the next volume of Grow, and you will be given access to the next volume of Grow which includes another 12 months of all new content and resources. 

 

DO I AUTOMATICALLY GET ACCESS TO THE NEW VOLUME WHEN IT RELEASES ON MAY 16th EVERY YEAR?

Although we release all of the new content for the next volume of Grow Curriculum every year on May 16th, you will get access to the new volume on your renewal date (see FAQ above about renewals). A lot of churches decide to move their renewal date up to May 16th (or sometime earlier than the date they originally purchased) and we can accommodate that for you. When you purchase Grow, we give you a full 12 months of teaching and resources and no matter when you bought that volume, we recommend using it for the full 12 months it provides. But of course if you want access early to the next volume to plan ahead or just have extra teaching and resources to choose from, we can help move your renewal date forward so you can get access early.

 

WHAT IS YOUR STATEMENT OF FAITH?

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, authoritative and reliable in its ability to help us grow.
We believe in the Holy Trinity, who works together to make all things new.
We believe in Jesus’ deity, virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross, resurrection, ascension to heaven, and in his return.
We believe the opportunity to experience forgiveness of sins and eternal life are made available to everyone through Jesus.
We believe the life and ministry of Jesus is the greatest example of love on earth and is to be our pattern as we learn to love God and our neighbours.
