At 15, Sebastian was shocked by the Bible speaking into his life. Please watch his amazing story:
Sebastian had the Bible opened to him on a youth retreat that introduced our special Bible for teenagers (Reach4Life).
This special Bible helps them explore all the pressing questions they don’t dare to ask about sex, porn, friendships, emotional pain, alcohol, their self-image – and how a teen can live in the way of Jesus.
Some of the verses we love at Christmas speak powerfully about how Jesus came to bring light and guidance in the darkness of hard times and confusion about life. That’s what Sebastian found for himself.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” – John 8:12
Yes, Generation Z is interested.
All around the world, the teenagers of Generation Z are grappling with difficult questions and the impact the pandemic had on their childhoods.
On top of this, a huge percentage of the world’s teens face other challenges like poverty, forced marriage, oppression, and even incarceration.
We know that the Bible addresses all these challenges.
62% of teenagers worldwide say they are open to engage more with the Bible.* But they need a helping hand to get into God’s Word.
The Reach4Life Bible and training is available in 40 languages so far. Church leaders around the world say it has a profound effect on the young people in their churches and communities.
“The leaders are shy to talk about these hot topics… This training is going to be a breakthrough.”
– Biblica’s Luther Awad, speaking at youth worker training in Egypt.
So let’s send Reach4Life to more places where youth work is scarce. Who knows what God will do when we open the Bible to Generation Z…
£40 could buy 10 teenagers their own youth Bible. Thank you for helping with a Christmas gift!
