Creating Bible lessons for teens can be a difficult task if you do not plan properly and have a specific goal in mind for your lessons. When building Bible lessons for teens keep in mind that teens have short attention spans and can be distracted fairly easily. With this in mind it is important to use interesting and exciting topics to cover in your Bible lessons for teens. One of the most important things to remember about Bible lessons for teens is that this may be the first time they are hearing certain Scripture or stories from the Bible. If this is the first time that a teenager is hearing a certain story or Scripture, one of the best ways to make sure that the material makes a connection with the student is to connect it to their lives. By relating stories from the Bible to your students 鈥?lives you bring your students into the stories and into the lessons of the Bible. Another important point to remember when building Bible lessons for teens is that for most of the day teams are being talked to or talk at. During their school day most teens are in a standard high school classroom, and in most cases the classes are very engaging. After school they may be part of a sports team or another extracurricular activity way they are being ordered around by a coach. Instead of delivering your message by talking to the teens, use the time with them as an opportunity to engage them and have a dialogue with them. By doing this and engaging your students, you will see that their attention will rise and they will be more eager to participate in discussion about the Bible lessons and the topics that you bring up for your youth ministry. Another important point to remember when creating Bible lessons for teens is the fact that no matter how interesting or engaging your class is, teens can get worn out with information overload. So for each lesson that you present to your students, have a clear defined goal, and a clear defined topic. By having a focus for each Bible lesson that you present to your students you will be able to stay on track more easily and present an interesting and educational Bible lesson for your youth ministry. When creating Bible lessons for teens they can be very difficult and time-consuming which takes away from the most important part of being a youth leader, which is building the relationships with your students to help them during this strange and difficult part of their life. All teens have struggles, and sometimes a youth minister or youth leader can make a huge difference and a positive impact in the lives of those teens.
