"What does it take for teenagers to “love your neighbor” in a global community? Start Becoming a Good Samaritan Teen Edition is an initiative to help teenagers live out Christ's love in world-changing ways right where they live. This groundbreaking training program helps youth groups and youth organizations explore the most pressing issues of our time—then start actually doing something about them. Join Jarret and Jeannie Stevens as they host six emotionally packed sessions featuring a remarkable array of global Christian leaders, including Zach Hunter, Brandon Heath, Mike Yankoski, Jason Russell, Rob Bell, Shane Claiborne, and many others. Designed for use with the Start Becoming a Good Samaritan Teen Edition Participant's Guide, the Start Becoming a Good Samaritan Teen Edition Videos take your students into the streets where, as the hands and feet of Christ, they will live out the gospel, positively impacting those suffering from poverty, social injustice, pandemic diseases, and more.
In Session 1, “Becoming a Good Samaritan,” teens will study the Good Samaritan and learn what the Good Samaritan needed to do before he could do his good deed.
In Session 2, “Caring for the Sick,” teens will learn what they can do on behalf of the sick—whether spiritually, emotionally, financially, or physically sick.
In Session 3, “Seeking Justice,” teens will learn the three components needed to prove to the world that God is good and learn what it means to become a “gracist.”
In Session 4, “Honoring the Poor,” teens will learn the attitudes and actions that help move them toward a lifestyle of service and discover what God promises if you take action on behalf of the poor.
In Session 5, “Tending to God’s Creation,” teens will study evidence of environmental change and learn their role in caring for the earth according to Scripture.
In Session 6, “Loving the Forsaken,” teens will discuss the fears or insecurities that can keep Christians from reaching out to those in prison, the orphaned, or disabled and discern how they can start showing the love of Christ to others.
