A new series to equip students to share life, faith and Jesus
Watch Teaser

LIFE ON PURPOSE is designed to serve teens by helping them make the connection between meaning, belonging, impact, and the joy of having their friends come to know Jesus.

The brand new LIFE ON PURPOSE series was designed with youth pastors and youth workers in mind. We know equipping this generation for mission and evangelism can be one of the hardest parts of ministry, but at the same time incredibly vital and transformative.

This series offers compelling student stories that are relational and relatable to youth, teaching from Biblical experts on topics around faith and evangelism, and discussion questions to engage young people.
