WHAT YOU GET
Included with every study are:
- Personal Prep
for the leader;
- Group Guide (Lesson Plan) for leading
the group session;
- Reproducible Student Section
Uncommon Prayer support;
- INNERgized Web Help.
- Personal Prep- As the leader,
you'll experience God's Word for yourself through a guided
inductive study. This isn't a "lesson out of a can"and
we're not apologetic about it. We believe that many of
the problems faced by today's teen generation are the
consequences of a biblically illiterate faith. Teens want
to be challenged! Be prepared.
- Group Guide- The Group Guide
provides a clear, easy-to-follow guide for leading an
invigorating group session with lasting results. After
you've experienced the Word for yourself in your Personal
Prep, the Group Guide will help you lead your students
in similar discoveries.
- Student Section- In each one-hour session, students will spend most of
their time interacting personally with Scripture using
their Bibles and reproducible sheets. Group discussions
are focused more on what God has said in His Word than
on opinions and speculations. The goal of each session
is not just "good discussion," but life-changing
- Uncommon Prayer Support- A
nationwide group of prayer partners will be praying for
you! By clicking Uncommon Prayer you can submit info that will help InWord’s prayer team pray specifically for your group. You’ll also find encouraging tips for enlisting personal and local prayer support.
- INNERgized Web Help-
Your purchase of an InWord study gives you password access
to that study's web support-downloadable/reformatable
student pages, optional exercises, insights, background
info and long-term application ideas. Every group is unique!
Use InWord's INNERgized
Web Help to tailor your group's experience in God's
Word to their specific needs.
When doing an InWord study, we recommend that you purchase
half-inch, three-ring notebooks for each student. You can
get these at office supply stores and they're not too costly.
Your group members can personalize these and use them to
keep track of their journal pages and Scripture sheets.
This notebook will become a personal journal of their experience
in God's Word.
THE GROUP SESSION
Designed to last about an hour, the group session will consist
Engaging, focused discussion
of what students learn in the Word.
Life-changing application exercises.
PARTNERS IN PRAYER
Don't even think about taking on a Bible study effort without
the support of relentless prayer. We have people across
the country praying for InWord Bible study groups like yours. By clicking Uncommon Prayer you can submit info that will help InWord’s prayer team pray specifically for your group. You’ll also find encouraging tips for enlisting personal and local prayer support.
Without proper prayer support, knowledge gained from a
study of God's Word can lead to pride. With proper prayer
support, knowledge will lead to transformation.
ONE YOUTH MINISTER'S STORY
Carol, a youth worker, was searching and praying for a Bible
study to feed the teens in her ministry who were hungry
for God. One day she and her dad, a pastor, had an impromptu
Bible study over the phone-a habit of theirs-of 2 Timothy,
the book she had considered using with her group.
Later that same day, Carol's dad suddenly passed away.
With 2 Timothy now alive in her heart, Carol was convinced
that this was the book she wanted to study with her students.
The question was how. Carol knew of InWord's teen study
2 Timothy and the Stuck Locker Door. So with a quick call
to InWord, she began an amazing journey with a handful of
"We met on Sunday afternoons," Carol shares.
"Parent volunteers picked up lunches for us, and we
dove into the Word of God. The kids were eager to use InWord's
inductive approach-getting alone with God, marking Scripture
sheets, and reflecting on how God was speaking to them individually."
As the weeks progressed, Carol saw transformation before
her very eyes. Student leaders were emerging. Spiritual
passions were discovered, and giftedness was explored. New
ministries were launched. Within a few weeks of completing
the study, Carol's students determined to launch a monthly
worship service for their unchurched peers, form a youth
worship team, and organize a puppet ministry to children.
The number of adult volunteers involved in Carol's ministry
Here's the kicker: Jessica, one of the initial handful
of hungry teens, didn't have a relationship with Jesus.
Out of curiosity she attended the sessions, and shortly
after the close of the study, she committed her life to
Could this happen in your youth ministry? Why don't you
ask the Lord how He wants to speak to your students through
His Word. Then trust the fact that He will!
