We're really pretty pumped to let the lid off our newest youth ministry Bible study curriculum, elements. We soft-launched the site yesterday and are continuing the roll-out today. I can say for sure that this is the most excited I've been about a Bible study project in a long time.
elements represents two important principles for everyone here at ym360 . . .
First, and most importantly, elements reflects our desire to see your students lay a solid foundation for their faith.
elements takes 25 foundational concepts of our faith and looks at each concept through a really cool, really unique framework. We call it the "three lenses" of elements.
So, each study looks at a specific concept--stuff like Grace, God's Love, Salvation, God's Sovereignty, and many more--in three lessons. Each lesson is a "lens."
- The first lesson in every study looks at how the concept is rooted in the character of God
- The second lesson looks at how the concept through the lens of the Gospel
- The third lesson is a laser-focused look at how to live out the concept as a 21st Century teenage Christ-follower.
I'm telling you, it's powerful, powerful stuff. And maybe the coolest thing about elements is how flexible it is. You can teach one study, teach a handful, or teach all 25. It really is that easy.
But elements also reflects the strong relationship you've allowed us to build with you, the youth workers who make up the ym360 community.
The commitment to craft a curriculum that teaches these foundational truths started with you. We heard you telling us over and over that you want more for your students when it comes to leading them deeper in their relationship with Christ. You told us you'd love some help teaching core truths in a way that was deep, but still easy to teach, solid but still engaging and interactive.
We feel like elements is all of these things and more.
We're excited. And we think you will be too. As we continue to roll out content and fine-tune the site, feel free to go check out elements for yourself.
