The teenagers in your ministry care about their world. They want to show up for friends who are struggling, speak up for those who are hurting in their community, and make a difference. But often their assumptions, experiences, or fears can hold them back.
Do you long to encourage your students’ passion and teach them to love the way Jesus loved?
Are you wishing you could transform your youth group into a compassionate community that cares with their heads and hearts as well as their hands and feet?
Empower your teens with tools for lifelong compassion
At FYI, we know that compassion is already in the DNA of your ministry. We’ve heard countless stories from youth leaders around the country about how you’re inviting students to serve others. Yet sometimes it can be easy to focus on action and forget that compassion calls us to interaction—with God, and with those in the world around us who are struggling.
Compassion from the Inside Out invites your students to dig deeper and explore compassionate interaction as you look at how Jesus modeled a life lived with compassion. Together you’ll share your own stories and grow closer as a prayer-filled, caring community as students learn about:
Paying attention to the people around them.
Sitting with the people in their lives and seeking to understand their pain.
Regularly checking in with God and with themselves.
Serving others with their heads, hearts, hands, and feet.
Nurture faith that lasts beyond youth group
