A Disciple Now (DNow) event can have a huge impact on your youth ministry, and your entire church. Having a solid, biblically based, and engaging curriculum is crucial for your event to be all it can be. We created Renew to give you an outstanding DNow curriculum at a ridiculously affordable price.
The Renew study comes out of Mark 12:30 where Jesus explains the greatest commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Renew was created to help students understand the importance of loving the Lord this way and to show how they can do it in their everyday lives. The curriculum is written to help grow the faith of committed believers while also offering opportunities for non-Christian students to understand the gospel.

What are the Lesson Topics in Renew?
1) RENEW Your Heart: Romans 6:15–18 – Our students and even we, ourselves, might be involved in ministry, serving others and going to Bible studies. But as tasks, service projects, and events add up, we need to consider why we do these things. Even the right thing done for the wrong reason can be harmful. It all starts with the heart.
2) RENEW Your Mind: Ephesians 4:17–24 – It’s easy to say one thing and think another, and while the person listening to us might not know the difference, God does. Loving God with our mind goes beyond a feeling or an attitude; it involves our focus, creativity, imaginations, and commitment to truth.
3) RENEW Your Strength: 2 Corinthians 12:9–10 – Our strength is all of our efforts and our actions. It’s our service, our dedication, and our tenacity. Usually our efforts fall into two categories: what we’re good at and what we aren’t. In this session, students will take a look at how they can love God not only when they’re good at something or when it’s easy, but when it’s hard and seems beyond their ability.
4) RENEW Your Soul: Mark 8:34–37 – Students will look at their priorities and the things keeping them from giving all of themselves to Christ. To love God with our soul means to be all-in and to love him with all your life. It means we don’t fall for distractions or get sidetracked by seeing things from a shortsighted position. Instead we change our focus from the temporary treasures of this world to our eternal life with God.
