Our Mission

To reach the youth of the United States with the Gospel of Christ through the local church.

We provide curriculum, training, resources, ministry programs and youth events to empower the local church to reach youth with the Gospel of Jesus.

Most youth and children’s ministries have that one big event each year that seems to energize their young people. In a small window of time, you see God do some seriously amazing things. But as soon as the week ends, the spiritual energy fades and decisions are forgotten. The zeal for God disappears and it’s as if things just go back to normal.

Word of Life Local Church Ministries would like to partner with your local church to equip you with resources, curriculum, and training to help your young people grow in their faith and maximize the impact of your ministries. Our goal is to help you take the spiritual energy and focus on that one week and harness it for rest of the 51 weeks in the year. Our passion is to see students saved, and discipled throughout the year. We call it “Extending the Experience.” It happens through 3 powerful tools; Life-Changing Curriculum, Ministry Programs and Student Events.

Curriculum

Life-changing lessons founded on application

The other powerful ingredient our lessons are built on is application of the Bible to the everyday life of a student. Each lesson is designed with application in mind, something that students can take throughout their week and actually put into practice in their real lives. We work hard to make our lessons applicable to the students of today. We strive to keep them fresh as new generations of students with new problems grow up. However, we know that God’s timeless Word addresses every problem in the life of a every student and so our goal is to apply it every week.

Our curriculum is based on one thing; helping students grow. That means every lesson is built with two powerful ingredients. First, the absolute truth of God’s Word from the Bible. Our lessons go deep and we don’t shy away from hard topics. We believe that students need a balanced diet of God’s Word. Our (link to it here) Scope and Sequence includes all kinds of lessons from Bible Book studies to dealing with Apologetics. From Theology to studying the overall story of God’s Word and how it impacts the way we live.
