“Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness.”
1 Tim. 4:7b
- Attending a local church is vital for the study and instruction from the Word of God.
- Word of Life Quiet Times help students develop a daily time in God’s Word with prayer. The Quiet Time is filled with penetrating questions, insights, and personal application.
- The Word of Life scripture memory sets cover relevant topics with a variety of key biblical themes. They are available in both paper and digital formats.
- We encourage students to show their love for Christ as they serve others in their church and community. We have developed a creative list of service ideas to engage students in ministry.
- One way to develop our character is by reading about the challenges and victories of other Christians. We encourage students to read books from a specific book list of relevant topics, Christian biographies, as well as the entire New Testament.
Bring a friend
- A great way to introduce unsaved students to Jesus is to have their Christian friends bring them to an event at your church so you can begin the conversation with them about Jesus.
- The most effective way to engage every student with the Gospel of Jesus is for students to have personal Gospel conversations with their friends.
Awards and Scholarships
- LOCAL CHURCH AWARDS
Word of Life recommends you set up a “rewards spot” where prizes are accessible during the weekly youth meeting. Prizes can range from $2-$5 in the form of gift cards, candy bars, drinks, etc. As students reach milestones through the year, they will receive rewards. For example, for every 50 points achieved, a student would receive a reward.
