Transform your youth group into a compassionate community
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.
We’ve packed this 4-week high school ministry curriculum with:
Powerful testimony-based discussion starters and video interviews with young people mobilize your team to model growth and inspire meaningful conversations.
Bible-based weekly scripts and slides equip you to teach for transformation.
Weekly interactive prayer and reflection activities compel your volunteers and students to practice compassion together.
Thought-provoking small group discussion guides and student take-home sheets help your students make meaning as they learn.
A comprehensive leader guide invites you and your leaders to reflect and grow alongside your students.
