51

Most youth and children’s ministries have that one big event each year that seems to energize their young people. It might be camp, a missions trip, or Vacation Bible School. Whatever it is for you and your church, wouldn’t you like to be able to extend the energy of that experience through the other 51 WEEKS of the year? We want to assist you in that endeavor! Word of Life Local Church Ministries would love to partner with your local church to equip you with the resources, curriculum, and training you need to help your young people grow in their faith and maximize the impact of your ministries.

Our Quiet Times are a personal tool crafted to get you into God’s Word on a daily basis. There are different versions for engaging all ages, but they all delve into the same passages. That way, whether it’s your family or your youth group, everyone can be in the same place, learning and talking about the same portions of God’s Word.

For Children 1ST - 6TH GRADE

Rev up your Olympian ministry with a Fascar event! Kids go wild as they speed hotwheel cars down the track, win trophies and hear the gospel. You have a Ministry Coach at your fingertips! They’ll come and help you run Fascar, provide equipment and supplies, help you with promotion strategies and present the gospel message. CONNECT WITH A MINISTRY COACH AT WOL.ORG/MINISTRY-COACH

WOL.ORG/FASCAR

For Children and Students 1ST - 12TH GRADE

Think a race sounds fun? What if we throw in mud pits, obstacle courses, top it off with a color run and finish with the gospel? Races are fun, yeah – but this one’s the wildest. Your area Ministry Coaches are there just to help you out! They’ll come and help you run Slopstacle, provide equipment and supplies, help you with promotion strategies and present the gospel message. CONNECT WITH A MINISTRY COACH AT WOL.ORG/MINISTRY-COACH

WOL.ORG/SLOPSTACLE


It’s an event you can host in your local church to reach unsaved students with the Gospel of Jesus. You’ll start the night with your youth group students, sending them out in vehicles to pick up their friends and bringing them back to the church for a gospel event. The night can include all kinds of programming fun, but it always ends with a gospel message and some kind of over-the-top food – like a 100-foot long banana split. Every year, hundreds of youth groups use the STORM event to partner with a local Ministry Coach to grow their youth group through reaching new students in the area and bringing them to a saving faith in Jesus.

WOL.ORG/STORM

For Students 6TH - 12TH GRADE

Every believer, including students, has God-given talents and spiritual gifts that the local church needs. Engage is a fresh way to get youth involved in ministry, to enable students to discover their gifts, to develop them through coaching and competition and to deploy both inside and outside the church. The event is focused around getting students involved in two types of ministry: ministry teams, through a ministry scenario that changes each year, and church ministry, through presentations that can be used within the local church itself.

Reverb is an all-night activity with one goal – sharing the gospel with unsaved students. It’s an awe-inspiring night that kicks off with a professional sports game and heart-pounding rally with prizes and games. Everything pauses for a clear gospel presentation and call to trust in Jesus. The rest of the night is filled with activities spread throughout great venues in the host city including sports complexes, bowling alleys, jump facilities and more. Reverb happens all over the East Coast, and our fall tour includes cities such as Orlando, Albany, Providence, Indianapolis, Kalamazoo and so many more!
