You can find Adulting Bible study series on RightNow Media, here


In this 6-part series, Jonathan Pokluda speaks to young people on the art of “adulting.” He walks through how to discern God’s will for your life, and how you can best glorify Him in the areas of career, singleness, relationships, commitments, and faith. God has a plan for young adults, and will be faithful through the major life changes that occur in the transition between adolescence and adulthood. Through every season, He continues to grow and sanctify each of us as we learn to follow Him and live out our faith as adults.

Watch this trailer for an overview of the series. 



Jonathan “JP” Pokluda is the Dallas Campus Pastor of Watermark Community Church and leader of The Porch, an influential young adult gathering of more than 3,500 in Dallas, Texas. At The Porch, thousands of young adults come hear the gospel, get equipped, and are unleashed for kingdom purposes. JP’s passion is to share the gospel with anyone who will listen and equip others to do the same. He also feels called to challenge Christians to multiply their faith by discipling others. 

Listen to JP’s encouragement for you as you lead this series. 




JP challenged those leading Adulting to listen, ask open-ended questions, facilitate conversation, and push people to the Scriptures.  

How could you create an environment where the participants feel safe to share their stories? How might open-ended questions allow for disagreements and honest discussion?

In what ways could you continually point those in your group to the Scriptures, especially in a day and age when young adults are encouraged by the world to create their own truth? How might you encourage a rhythm of looking to God’s Word, both during and outside of group time?

At the beginning of each session, your group will watch a dramatic or funny illustration that introduces the topic of the session. This dramatic illustration offers an inspirational look at the daunting journey into adult life. 



They will also hear real-life stories from young adults who are navigating the issues of adulthood. Listen to Chloe share about her career, and the temptation she faces to make her job her identity.  



To help you teach, you will use the downloadable Leader’s Guide and group handouts available online to dig deep into powerful teaching from the video. Take some time in advance to consider the Bible study questions and come up with personal examples to encourage discussion among the group. 

As you prepare to lead this Bible study, what are some of your specific prayer requests for the young adults in your group?
