  • Stewardship
    elements | Stewardship

    elements | Stewardship

    Stewardship will help teens understand that as God’s children, we’re called to see every resource we have as belonging to God and coming from Him, that Jesus modeled stewardship for us in His willingness to step away from heaven to purchase salvation for His children, and that living out the principle of stewardship means giving of yourself to serve others and God.

  • Grace
    elements | Grace

    elements | Grace

    Grace is foundational in God’s relationship with us. Your teens probably have an idea of what grace is, but do they know how completely grace covers God’s interactions with them? In this 3-lesson study, teens will learn how God’s grace shapes their relationship with Him, how salvation through Christ is the fullest expression of God’s grace, and how they’re called to be people whose every relationship is defined by grace.

  • Salvation
    elements |  Salvation

    elements | Salvation

    Our students often miss the great depth and richness of the salvation God offers. In this 3-lesson study, your teenagers will see how God was focused on salvation from the very beginning of His interactions with humankind, how salvation is only found through faith in Christ’s work on the cross, and what it means to be living, breathing examples of salvation to those they encounter each day.

  • The Church
    elements | The Church

    elements | The Church

    This study will help teens understand that the Church is made up of everyone who has, who does, or who will believe in God; that when they profess faith in Jesus, they become a vital part of the Church, the Body of Christ; and that God has in mind specific ways they are to interact with those in their Church, other Christ-followers, and those who don’t know Christ.

  • Suffering
    elements | Suffering

    elements | Suffering

    This study will help teens understand that while God is in control of all things, suffering is a result of our rebellion against Him, that God chose to step into the midst of our suffering--in the form of Christ’s death on the cross--not to remain distant from it, and that God uses trials and suffering to accomplish His purposes and shape our faith.

  • God's Word
    elements | God's Word

    elements | God's Word

    Teens tend to hear “God’s Word” and only think of their Bibles. But a good understanding of God’s Word goes deeper than just seeing it as the words on their favorite Bible app. This study helps teens see the power of God’s Word throughout the Old Testament, how Jesus was the physical embodiment of God’s Word (God’s living, breathing Word to us), and how their lives can be used to spread God’s Word.

  • Discipleship
    elements |  Discipleship

    elements | Discipleship

    The key to leading teenagers to live faith-lives that mirror the examples we find in Scripture is to help them truly grasp the call to be disciples. This 3-lesson study helps teenagers understand that the call to follow after God is at the core of what it means to be a Christian, that following Christ means surrendering leadership of their life to Him, and that doing so unlocks the purpose God has for them.

  • God's Glory
    elements | God's Glory

    elements | God's Glory

    God’s glory is one of those “church” words teens hear but can’t really define. This study will help teens see that God’s glory speaks primarily to the honor and awe due to God simply for who He is, the role Jesus played in physically demonstrating God’s glory on this earth, and that God is given glory as they live out their everyday lives, especially during tough times.

  • Evangelism
    elements | Evangelism

    elements | Evangelism

    The word evangelism may send shivers down a lot of teenagers' spines. But when they have a good grasp of God’s desire to redeem all humankind, sharing this truth becomes second nature. This 3-lesson study will help teens understand that God has always had a heart for being in relationship with humankind, that Jesus desires for us to be active in sharing the Gospel with those who need to hear it, and that they would begin to identify--and address--some of the hang-ups that keep them from being more active messengers of the Gospel.

  • God's Judgment
    elements |  God's Judgment

    elements | God's Judgment

    God’s judgment isn’t something we really enjoy thinking about. But teenagers will never truly understand God’s love and grace until they understand His righteous justice. This 3-lesson study will help your students understand God’s role as righteous judge, the judgment Christ took on their behalf (and the new life He purchased them), and what doing justice practically looks like in their context.

  • God's Love
    elements |  God's Love

    elements | God's Love

    If we had to boil all of God’s attributes down into one, it might be that we’d wind up with the word “love.” This 3-lesson study will help teenagers see how God’s love is at the very center of who He is, how Christ’s atoning death on the cross is the most complete expression of God’s love, and how they’re called to be known by their love for others.

  • God's Mission

    elements | God's Mission

    This study will help teens see that God has been at work throughout history making a way for people to be saved from the effects of sin; that Jesus was the Rescuer God had been promising for centuries; and that there will come a day when God has accomplished His rescue mission and all Believers will live forever in peace with God.

elements FAQ's

What's the best way to implement elements in my youth ministry?

Great question. (We like the way you think.) Since elements is based on foundational concepts, it provides a ton of flexibility. You can implement elements in quite few ways, including the following:

  • Use elements as your Sunday morning Bible study curriculum, teaching all core 25 concepts.
  • Choose a specific study (such as grace, or God's love) as a three-week emphasis for your mid-week gathering.
  • Take a three-week break from your regular curriculum to focus on one of elements' core concepts.
  • Take a semester to teach through a combination of elements studies of your choosing.
  • Let students choose a core concept to study in their small groups.

Is the elements Bible study curriculum designed for Sunday mornings?

Most definitely. The elements Bible study curriculum is a perfect fit for your Sunday mornings! Teach through all 25 core concepts, or choose the concepts you're most interested in. ALSO, the elements Bible study curriculum is great for other uses such as: discipleship groups, mid-week Bible studies, and Small Groups!

Can I get a physical copy of the elements Bible study curriculum?

The elements Bible Study Curriculum is 100% downloadable. Going digital allows us to pass along tremendous savings to you. We get to deliver a solid Bible study curriculum for a fraction of the price you might pay elsewhere. However, keep in mind that lesson plans are editable and printable. You'll be able to have a hard copy in your hands as you teach!

Will there be more elements studies developed other than the first 25?

Not at this time. We worked with a few different groups of youth workers from different backgrounds to identify these 25 concepts. The studies you see here represent the entire elements Bible study curriculum line. Collectively, the entire line provides a total of 75 weeks of curriculum!

Is there a set order for teaching through the elements Bible study curriculum?

Nope! We worked with youth workers to define the 25 individual concepts covered in elements. And while we've loosely grouped related concepts together in "volumes," there's no set order or sequence, per se. Choose one or two studies out of a volume. Or teach the entire volume in the order we've suggested, or in an order that works for your group!

At ym360, one of our values is a commitment to producing resources that are high quality and budget friendly. We believe elements is a perfect combination of the two!

Here's a rundown of elements pricing:

  • MIX AND MATCH: You pick your quantity with this option and discounts are applied based on total quantity!
  • ANY ONE, INDIVIDUAL STUDY: 19.99 (total of 3 weeks each, only 6.67 per week)
  • ANY 5 STUDIES: 93.95 (total of 15 weeks, only 6.26 per week)
  • THE ENTIRE LIBRARY: 319.00 (total of 75 weeks, only 4.25 per week)

Why is each elements study only three weeks each?

Because big things come in small packages, that's why! Seriously, we wanted to create a curriculum that was super-solid, but easy to access and teach. We worked to come up with an awesome 3-lesson framework for teaching these core concepts. We call them our three "lenses." We think you'll find they create a really great approach for teaching these concepts.

About elements

At YM360, we know you desire to lead teenagers to a dynamic relationship with God. But this kind of relationship only happens when teens know AND live out the foundational truths of their faith.
