11 years ago I sat in Dryer 201 with my buddies Andy, Scott and Mark. I don't know who exactly it was, Scott I think, but someone tossed out the idea of created a curriculum for teens that would take them through the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. The four of us divided up the 9 larger sections of systematic theology and pledged to begin writing on it. Then summer hit, we got distracted and that was that. Until today. Actually until 5 years ago.
That idea never left me and as I entered ministry that idea became a need and that need had to be answered. The teens I was ministering to needed to know what the Bible taught about God, salvation, sin, eternity, the church and all the other big players in the world of systematic theology. So I sat down and wrote, and taught, and wrote, and taught. Over the last 5 years the curriculum has been written, rewritten, edited, taught to over 50 teens, written again and formatted so it looks half-way decent. What's so humbling to me is that a few churches asked to buy it from me to teach their teens.
So the dream is realized. I can say, humbly I have to say, that there is a curriculum for teenagers on the basic doctrines of the Christian faith. And I can now get this project off my plate, and allow God to put other things there for His glory and the advancement of the gospel.
