You can find the Life on Mission Bible study series for youth in the RightNow Media Bible Study Library here.

In order to impact the next generation for Christ, we need to intentionally teach our youth the gospel and develop them for the purpose of fulfilling God’s mission in the world. This mission goes far beyond the classroom; it’s a radical call of obedience and faith—every day of our lives. 

Through foundational biblical teaching and real-life stories, Life on Mission will help students see how they can intentionally live on mission and fulfill God’s ultimate purpose for their lives. Take a look at an overview of the series that you will stream from your RightNow Bible Study Library. 

In Life on Mission, you'll hear students share about their own struggles with letting the gospel transform their lives and the impact that surrendering to Christ has had on those around them. In this real-life story from the series, Dakota shares how chasing after success in football left him feeling empty and how focusing on his faith changed his life and relationships. 

The students in your group are at different levels in their faith and some are searching, doubting, wondering.  Who are the teens who look for their identity in accomplishments? Who do you know who is chasing after approval? Who needs to see how the gospel can transform their life? Who will you reach out to as you start this Bible Study?

In these four inspiring sessions, David Platt is one of the teachers who provides powerful teaching from Scripture. David serves as Senior Pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama. He is also the author of the New York Times Best Seller Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream and Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live

In this video, David shares how to teach your students a better way to live than what the culture tells them. 

David's encouragement was to illustrate your own transformation. What do your students see in your life that compels them to lay down their own lives? How are you making your faith contagious?

1 Corinthians 3:7-9 (NASB)

7So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.8Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.9For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

D.A. encouraged all youth leaders to be faithful in this season of "plowing, planting, and watering" the faith of students. How could you carry on these conversations of faith with individual students after finishing the series?

At the beginning of each session, your students will experience  a dramatic or clever illustration that eases into the topic. Your group will be challenged to consider the treasures they find worthy to chase in this visually stunning illustration of the journey from grave to grace. 

To help you teach the Bible study lesson, you will use 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 with your students. 

As you prepare to lead this Bible study, are there any ways I can pray for you or help you facilitate?
