Messes & Miracles is a four-week, all-inclusive teaching series on the life of Moses and the role of the Holy Spirit in his life. It’s both extremely practical and Bible-heavy. .

Students will be able to relate to God’s miraculous plans being accomplished through ordinary, broken people. We want to encourage students in their own messiness and embolden them to step into God’s call on their life to bring the gospel to the world through the Holy Spirit. .

In this resource, you'll get tons of great illustrations, games that actually go with the message, response-time activities, great small group discussion questions, high-quality graphics, and even a parent discussion guide! Plug this series into your scope and sequence to help your students develop both a deeper understanding of a major biblical character AND how to be used by God despite their weaknesses. This series appeals to both the seeker and the seasoned believer..

Sabrina Hadro

As the super part time youth director at my church in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, I get to bring together the call and gifts the Holy Spirit has given me, alongside of 14 years of youth ministry experience in various church sizes and denominations, to lead a team to share the Gospel with teenagers. My first job is wife and mother to 3 littles under 5 years old (pray for me) and I squeeze in gardening, sharing with DYM, sports, and guitar during nap times!
