Our team here at Group/Simply Youth Ministry spent two years developing an approach to a youth ministry staple—the sermon series—that creates a growth-rich environment for students. We discovered a lot along the way. For example, almost everyone in youth ministry uses sermon/talk series at their main weekly gathering, but very few are truly happy with the end results.
All of us pour our heart, mind, and soul into sermon prep, but it’s really hard to gauge our permanent impact. So we tapped our four decades of expertise to create an innovative, highly engaging resource we call LIVE: Message Series. Each series offers powerhouse messages that have a secret weapon: active and interactive elements that lead to true transformation. And all the series come in a package that includes optional ideas and a mountain of graphic assets to help you publicize and present.
Along our development journey, we surveyed youth workers for their favorite topic targets. So here they are! These titles are the result of partnering with youth workers just like you to develop a comprehensive list.
