Topics and Lesson Plan
LIVE My New Life With Jesus will helps teenagers ask questions, explore the Bible, and grow their relationship with Jesus.
- Lesson 1: Being a new creation in Christ
- Lesson 2: Reading the Bible
- Lesson 3: Praying
- Lesson 4: Walking with other Christians
- Lesson 5: Having friends who spur them on
- Lesson 6: Sharing their faith
- Lesson 7: Dealing with doubt

Each lesson challenges teenagers to think critically and figure out why they believe what they believe. And open-ended questions create room for authentic discussions that lead to hard-to-reach places (aka conversations where you find out what’s really going on in their lives).
LIVE Daily App
LIVE My New Life With Jesus includes access to the innovative LIVE Daily student app that allows you to pre-schedule and automatically send teenagers “in the moment” prompts and ideas for living out their faith.
Each day’s idea connects to the week's curriculum lesson, and taps into different learning styles that make lessons stick, including serving others, reading Scripture, praying, creatively connecting to Jesus, and worshipping in ways beyond singing songs.
LIVE invites parents to get involved
Because spiritual growth happens best when your ministry efforts merge with life at home, LIVE intentionally helps you connect to parents by inviting them to get involved with what their teenagers are learning each week.
This happens through LIVE's parent email templates that coordinate with your weekly lessons. Each email shares details about the weekly topic with parents, and includes conversation prompts to spark deeper discussion at home.
LIVE’s Online Management Tool
Your purchase of LIVE My New Life With Jesus includes one year of access to LIVE's online management tool (a $99 value).
With LIVE's online management tool, planning has never been easier. Choose which lessons you want to teach from within the tool, and edit or customize them to make them unique to your students. Then assign lessons to small group leaders, share files with your team, schedule LIVE daily texts for students, and access parent email templates. Everything is coordinated and accessible from one dashboard on any device.
