…Veggie Tales should make youth curriculum. It won’t work for middle school students because of the “I’m too cool” factor, but I think it is great for older youth. I especially like their video “God Made You Special” it has a collection of stuff that are all around the theme that you are special to God. If you need a quick youth series why not check it out.
I don't have all of the answers and some weeks it feels like I don't have any of the answers. I often find a good word picture or object lesson and build the lesson off of that instead of the other way around. I don't always pray as much as I should and I never study as much as I should. But I love students ministry. I love watching teenagers as they serve God. I love to see them worship and forget about themselves for a while. I love seeing someone wake up to the love of God if only for a little while. I love to see them out serving their community and sharing the love of Christ with others. I love to be a part of their lives and I love seeing the world through their eyes. I am an average youth minister.
