Francis Chan is a nationally-recognized speaker and the best-selling author of "Crazy Love" and "Forgotten God." He is passionate about seeing teens display a much deeper love for Jesus and their neighbors. After listening to Emily's story, Francis shows us how he challenges students to live a life that is totally surrendered to God.

Francis said that God wants us to “sense his presence in every activity.” Whether you are teaching, running, going to school, or studying…no matter what you are doing, he encourages students to surrender every area of their lives to God for His glory. What in Francis' teaching can you use to encourage the students in your group?
