“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith.” - Hebrews 12:1-2
Think of the students in our ministry. At some point in their lives, many, if not most of them, will have become a Christ-follower. At some point, they knew they were sinners separated from God. They learned that Jesus paid the once-and-for-all price for their sins, making peace between God and them. And in faith, they accepted His sacrifice on their behalf. At some point this was experienced by many of your students. And it was amazing.
The problem is that, for many of them, their stories don’t go much further than this. But this doesn’t have to be the case.
NEXT: Growing A Faith That Lasts, will help teenagers begin to lay the foundation of a faith that will last long into their adult life. By teaching NEXT, you’ll help students know why it’s so important to own their faith. You’ll help them think differently about their purpose and influence, as well as equipping them to practice the spiritual habits necessary to grow a meaningful faith.
