Youth Ministry Curriculum and Comprehensive Strategy

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.

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!

When we created Grow we placed helping small churches at the top of our priority list – that’s why we invited dozens of small church leaders to contribute to our strategy and resources. One of the most important resources we created with small churches in mind was our “Hybrid Teaching Guide”. This guide combines the traditional sermon outline and traditional small group questions, to create a brand new discussion based teaching tool perfect for youth groups under 15 students.

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.

 

WHAT IS YOUR STATEMENT OF FAITH?

We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return.
We believe people receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life through Jesus.
