Jesus and Your Influence: A 4-Lesson Bible Study will teach your students that Jesus desires to use their influence to positively impact the world for God, that real influence comes when they put other’s needs before our own, and that the ultimate use of their influence is leading others to Christ.
Here’s a truth about the teenagers in your ministry: Not all of them are leaders. “OK,” you may say, “tell me something I don’t know.” Well, try this: While all of your teenagers might not be leaders, all of your teenagers have influence. Every teenager in your youth group is capable of influencing someone. Your students have the potential to make an impact on the world around them. And wouldn’t you know it? Jesus had quite a bit to say about how they should use their influence.
That Jesus desires to use their influence to positively impact the world for God
That their influence is impacted by how their lives do or don’t match up with their faith
That real influence comes when they put other’s needs before our own
That the ultimate use of their influence is leading others to Christ
Teach Jesus and Your Influence to challenge students to make a difference in their worlds.

Fears every Youth Worker has when selecting a year-long Bible Study:
The fear of locking into a Bible study that looks good on the surface but doesn't go any deeper than surface-level
The fear of being a few weeks into a study and it not meeting the expectations you set
The fear of picking a study that doesn't ultimately speak into the lives of your students
It doesn't have to be this way.
You don’t need to be reminded of the issues teenagers deal with as they try to live out their faith in a world that’s often opposed to their core beliefs. Navigating these issues can be rough. Teenagers get so many mixed messages; the world says one thing, their friends may say another. And we hope they know enough about their faith to know how to make sense of it all.
The Jesus Studies, a 52-week Bible study strategy, cut through the confusion, teaching your students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in their lives.
These are not watered-down, topical Bible studies. These studies reveal how Jesus weighs in on the very issues your students are confronted with on a daily basis. Your students will learn to see life through the person of Christ.
Your students will journey through the following concepts: Jesus and Identity, Your Faith, Jesus and Culture, Jesus and Loving Others, Jesus and Tough Times, Jesus and Your Image, Jesus and Stress, Jesus and Forgiveness, Jesus and Influence, Jesus and Relationships, Jesus and Your Future, Jesus and Mean People, and Jesus and Stuff.
Teach The Jesus Studies to equip your students to see the relevant issues of their lives through the words of Jesus.
