Whether Bible studies are a regular part of your ministry—or you’re contemplating how to bring Bible study into your ministry in a more significant way—chances are, you want to help your students get into the Word in a way that challenges them and changes their lives. That’s a goal worth pursuing—but it can feel like a goal you may never reach.
Let Unleashing God’s Word in Youth Ministry help you develop a Bible study approach that engages students on a deeper level. As you devour the wisdom from decades of student ministry and engage in your own study of God’s Word, you’ll discover how to take student Bible study to a whole new level.
Unleashing can help you:
- Get beyond the typical Bible discussions and learn to confidently engage students in an in-depth search of God’s Word
- Teach teens how to study the Bible on their own
- Become invigorated in your own personal interaction with the Bible
- Gain confidence and competence in leading teens deeper in Bible study, and much more.
If you want to take your students deeper into the Bible, discover what it takes to unleash God’s Word in your youth ministry – and watch your students and ministry be transformed!
“Anyone who knows Barry Shafer knows he has a deep love for God’s Word, and that authentic affection and sense of wonder comes across on every page of this book. I love all the practical instruction this book provides. Hopefully, this book will sow seeds that take root, spread, and change the landscape of youth ministry.”

“If you believe, as I do, that the Bible is God’s Word to us, then this book will be an important piece of the puzzle to understanding what the Bible really is, how we got what we hold in our hands today and why it can make all the difference in the way we live our lives. Unleashing inspired me to open up my Bible and really get into it! It also encouraged me to allow more of God’s Word to really get into me.”

“Barry Shafer is passionate about helping plant the Word of God in the hearts and minds of young people. He will help you create a ministry that outlasts you and brings eternal value to your ministry with kids. This is a very compelling and important book.”

“Barry Shafer challenges us to get our ‘Bibles off the bottom of our stack of Youth Resource Materials.’ I like how Barry shows practically how we can feed our students spiritual meat directly from the Word of God rather than relying on fluff. Unleashing strengthened my own faith while it coached me on how to get young people to feed on God’s Word themselves for life.”
