R.E.A.D.Y Youth Curriculum from Global Ministries

The vision for this curriculum is to enable youth of all ages to reimagine and redefine their understanding of God’s mission. Life is full of crossroads where we must make decisions on how we will engage the world and, most especially, those who are different from us. During this quest, our hope is to challenge participants to broaden their view of their role in the church, community, and world.

Included in this curriculum is a wellspring of information and resources selected to aid you as you journey with your youth. In the four sessions, youth are asked to unpack their prejudices, both conscious and unconscious. They will also be equipped with tools to help them constantly evaluate their world and God’s mission.
