Youth Group: Go deeper than pizza and armpit relays!
Just what you need to disciple students—and make your life easier. This youth group program was developed by Matt Milthaler of Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, OH and is currently in use at Ginghamsburg. The e|Merge youth program comes in three 13-program volumes, volume 1.0 contains a director\'s book, an interactive DVD, and two small group leader\'s guides—one for leaders working with younger youth and one for leaders working with older youth. Both small group leader\'s guides come with an interactive CD.
The 13 sessions in volume 1.0 are grouped into three units.
\"Spiritual Disciplines,\" the first unit, helps students develop habits of prayer, Scripture reading, and simple living.
\"Room Raiders,\" the second unit, looks at relationships and personal choices using the metaphor of a house. (The \"Family Room\" session deals with familial relationships, the \"Rec Room\" session with entertainment choices, and so on).
\"Contagious Faith,\"the third unit, looks at evangelism, teaching and encouraging youth to be a living example and to tell their story.
Each of the 13 programs in this first volume is enhanced by visual media and divided into two segments: a large group gathering and teaching time, followed by dividing youth into small groups for more intimate discussion. The director\'s kit will provide all the materials that leaders need to plan and carry out the programs and to resource small group leaders.
The interactive DVD features video segments, PowerPoint games, printable handouts, and a video showing a working model of the program. The interactive CDs found in the small group leader\'s guides provide leader training in MP3 format and printable handouts for use in the small-group setting.
Note to Director: If you have more than one break-out small group for younger and/or older youth, please order additional copies for the leader. You will need to order the Director\'s Kit first, ISBN 0687490057.
