The goal of this series is to help train students to become "Love Ninjas." These five or six message will teach students what real love is (contrary to all the counterfeits the world calls "love") and how relationships work (and don't work) from the perspective of God's Word. (Plus, ninjas are awesome.) God is the original Love Grandmaster—He IS love. God invented love, sex, romance, and relationships. This resource can be used this as a standard 5-week (and optional 6th bonus week) series in youth group, or as the morning sessions at a week of youth camp, or in a long weekend intensive study. It's aimed primarily at high school, but you can adapt it for junior high or college students, as well.
