Teenagers stand at the top of the list of those who dislike authority. But from the very first pages of the Bible, God has a lot to say about the topic. He made humanity to submit to His authority. But He also gifted us with the authority to rule our world. Sin corrupted that structure, and ever since, humans and authority don’t get along. Those who have authority lord it over those who don’t. And those who don’t have authority hate those who do. In the lives of teenagers, authority becomes a particularly pungent problem. From parents to teachers to government institutions, youth of all generations have challenged the right of their superiors to tell them what to do.

This 4-part youth series gets it all out into the open. We’ll look at biblical teaching on the nature of authority—where did it come from and why should we pay attention? We’ll dig into the messy way that authority muscles into the lives of youth: God, parents, teachers, the government, and in their own roles as leaders. Not all authority is good—and we’ll paint a picture of what it looks like to resist authority in a godly way. In the end we’ll see that authority under God is a good thing. We find our most fulfilling life when we live in obedience to God, because He said so.

OTHER SERIES WITH D.A. Horton
Note: The real-life stories in this series contain mature themes.*

It's so easy to get lulled into a sleepy faith, seeing our relationship with God as just what we do on Sundays or at youth group. We're tempted to live for ourselves, pursuing the fleeting pleasures of sin instead of pursuing a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. But the time for sleeping is over—no more snooze button, no more pulling the covers over your head. It's time to wake up to the reality of the life we've been called to live in Christ.

In this series, author and church planter D.A. Horton will call students to awaken their faith and reach their world—their friends, neighbors and classmates—with the gospel of Jesus Christ. He will unpack what the Bible says about the life-giving, soul-awakening message of the gospel and how prayer, study of God's Word, and service equip and empower followers of Christ to overcome sin. D.A also challenges students to boldly seek the advancement of God's Kingdom at home and around the world.

Please Note: This series is intended for High School aged teenagers. Please preview the material, especially if you plan on showing it to Junior High aged youth.
