Suicide. Abortion. Homosexuality. Depression. Prejudice. How are you addressing complex, deep-rooted issues like these in your youth group? If you’re looking for some direction, this resource is like a Youth Workers Book of Case Studies… and it can become an invaluable resource. It will help you generate discussion among your students about relevant and important life issues.

From youth ministry legend and HomeWord President Jim Burns, this resource includes 51 true-to-life stories involving teenagers and then asks critical questions designed to get students thinking and talking. The case studies cover 26 topics, including:

  • Abortion
  • Alcoholism
  • Depression
  • Doubt
  • Drugs
  • Eating Disorders
  • Homosexuality
  • Love, Sex, and Dating
  • Self Esteem
  • Sexual and Physical Abuse
  • Suicide
  • ...and 15 others.

    Your purchase includes a sleek, professionally-designed PDF containing all 51 original case studies, as well as editable Word documents of each of the 26 topics contained in the PDF. Print out as many copies as you want and make them available to students and volunteers, or even use it as discussion guides for small groups.

    Also, don’t feel limited to using this with teenagers—these could serve you well at a volunteer training meeting. Use them with volunteers and then train them how to use these in their smaller group settings.

    There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

    Thank YOU!
