Today’s teens deal with stresses that most of us never imagined when we were in high school: teen depression, suicide, AIDS and other STDs, pornography at the click of a mouse. Many teenagers feel stressed out and helpless in the face of such issues. So how can youth leaders help teens in their group develop the coping skills and strength of heart to deal with the crises that arise in their lives? Youth-ministry veteran Jim Burns has developed Uncommon: Dealing with Stress & Crisis to equip leaders with the tools they need to start effective conversations and build a supportive peer community. Using the Bible as a foundation, this study provides leaders with indispensable tips for guiding dialog to get their teens talking, thinking and praying. Includes downloadable, reproducible handouts to make planning interactive Bible studies a snap.
