Teens Transformed

Come to the Teens Transformed experience!  This small group meets Tuesday evenings in the spring and fall semesters.  Time and again, if mom made them come or they chose to on their own, we have seen kids come in quiet, shy and unsure….yet by the end of the experience leave confident, enthusiastic and changed – because they’ve learned who they are in Christ!  And they’ve made a few friends along the way.

Teens Transformed is the ultimate teen workbook! It is the culmination of over 22 years of student ministry.  With eight sleek, insightful and well illustrated lessons on Biblical principles, this workbook is basic and practical in its presentation of truth and challenging in its personal application.

Teens Transformed is uniquely designed to:

  • Paint vivid pictures of God’s love!
  • Illuminate practical truth
  • Burst with thirst-quenching Scriptures
  • Amaze you with insightful quotes from Mark Twain to Kermit the Frog

Teens Transformed teaches:

The Foundation:

  • The Sufficiency of Scripture
  • The Nature of Man

The Trinity:

  • New Identity in Christ
  • Dancing with Holy Spirit
  • God-Thoughts

The Practical Application of Radical Truth:

  • Belief Systems
  • Torah Syndrome
  • Emotions
