Leading "Eternity" Youth Bible Study featuring Francis Chan


You can find the Eternity series exclusively in the RightNow Media Bible Study Library here

The world tells teens that they should have it all, and have it now. Too often temporary passions are elevated over those things of lasting significance. But what happens when teens are given a clear vision of the future, one that rightly places God at the center, clearly defines heaven and hell, and rightly sees Christ—not them—sitting on an eternal throne? What if all of life was lived through the lens of eternity? Would students not see the greater beauty and joy of loving God and loving others, compared to the empty pursuit of personal pleasure?

Through four sessions Francis Chan will unpack what Scripture says about eternity, debunking misconceptions about heaven and hell. He will inspire students to lay aside what is fleeting and passionately pursue God and His mission in light of eternity. 

Take a look at this video overview of the series.

Francis Chan is the best-selling author of books, Crazy Love, Forgotten God, Erasing Hell, Multiply and You and Me Forever, co-written with his wife, Lisa. Francis is the founding pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California, and is the founder of Eternity Bible College. Currently, Francis is planting churches in the San Francisco area. 

Listen to Francis speak about why he believes Eternity is so important for students today and hear his encouragement for you as you lead your group through this awesome series!

Francis talked about the impact that his youth pastor had on him—how he modeled what it looks like to live in light of eternity. As you lead your group of students through this Bible study, what are some practical ways you can be proactive in modeling a life that is marked by a firm belief in eternity?

At the beginning of each session, your students will experience dramatic or funny illustrations to ease into the study. This lighthearted clip makes a serious point as it pokes fun at our potentially catastrophic tendency to procrastinate in sharing our faith.

You'll also hear from a variety of students who share how God used their life circumstances to give them a deeper understanding of His love for them and how their lives should be shaped by their future eternity with Him.  In this real-life story from the series, Ashleigh explains how a simple message—Jesus Loves You—opened her eyes to an eternal God who cared for her.  

To help you teach, you will use the downloadable Leader's Guide and group handouts available online to dig deep into powerful teaching from the video. Take some time in advance to consider the Bible study questions and come up with personal examples to encourage discussion with your students.  

As you prepare to lead this Bible study, are there any ways I can pray for you or help you facilitate?
