This template is designed to help youth leaders communicate the Bible in a way that’s both creative and applicable for teenagers.
If you’re in youth ministry, you don’t need us to tell you teaching teens is a different beast than teaching adults or children.
Teens are in that wonderful in-between spot. They’re capable of understanding many of the deep truths of God’s Word, so you don’t have to talk down to them or shy away from difficult subjects. However, when it’s time for the lesson, you’ve probably found that they’re still like small children in a lot of ways—needing something to capture their attention before they start talking about memes or standing on their heads.
That’s why we created this template specifically for youth pastors and leaders who want to create messages that will resonate with their students.
It’s a variation on some of the other sermon outline types already included in this guide, but we’ve tweaked it to account for short attention spans and rooms that can get crazy fast.
In short, we know you need a game plan that will allow you to keep the main things the main things while you preach for life change. If you’re using Sermonary (and if you’re not, why aren’t you?!), you can find this template, called “The Youth Pastor” in our pre-built template section.
We like to think of this outline in terms of the 5 C’s. Here they are:
We believe writing and preparing sermons should be one of the highlights of pastoral ministry rather than one of the greatest burdens. That’s why we’ve created a sermon editor used by thousands of pastors to streamline their sermon writing process, inspire ideas to help them find momentum, and help keep the joy of ministry and sermon prep.
