I’ve served as director of youth and young adult ministry at Emmanuel UMC for over a year now. One aspect of my position is the chance to lead our Tuesday night young adult bible study. I’m certainly not the only one who lead the bible studies (Josh Weiss, Steve Stone Jr, Jayna Leitze, Jessie Teegarden, Drew Thomas, Carly Fields, Wayne Hamm…and more that I can’t remember) have also lead our group.
I know how difficult it is to come up with “original material” so I wanted to share the notes from our bible studies over the past year. Those who lead bible studies find this as a good starting point and for those who just want to read some bible studies will enjoy the ideas.
These bible studies are from March 2013-January 2014. A majority of these were written and facilitated by me but they aren’t all my thoughts/ideas.
One of our focuses last year was to focus on the “minor” characters of the Bible. A majority of our bible studies are based on their stories. Another main topic was the book A New Kind of Christianity by Brian McLaren. You will also find several stand alone studies.
Characters we covered/studied:
Woman caught in adultery
Father of boy possessed by impure spirit
Source of prayer
Our young adults gather every Tuesday night for Bible Study. If you would like to join us contact me at (email@example.com). If you don’t live in Memphis you can still join us online. We broadcast our bible study every week starting at 8:15 CST on Google Hangouts. You can also watch live on YouTube.
