Keeping Teens Focused on Spirituality Instead of Miley Cyrus Twerking
"We created the non-denominational, lesson-based Youth Ministry Zone because we understand how busy youth ministers are," explains co-founder Paul Evans. "We help them spend less time planning and more time connecting."
The Youth Ministry Zone now offers more than 300 youth bible lessons with a new lesson released each week. The outline, handouts, and small group discussion guide teach core bible principles without compromising the spiritual message. Youth ministers also have access to materials to help them lead devotionals, quiet times, and personal retreats.
Other resources include "copy, tweak, and paste" content that can be used in newsletters and emails to teens and their parents. To help youth ministers manage the administrative side of their ministry, the Youth Zone provides printable forms that include volunteer applications, leader job descriptions, and medical releases.
Co-founders Paul Evans and Al Millergren began providing resources for youth ministers in 1991 through direct mail, before the Internet was widely available. It wasn't until 1995 that they were able to reach youth ministers through their website, Teen Life Ministries. In 2004 they opened the Youth Ministry Zone to offer a wider range of resources.
