Teaching a youth ministry Bible lessons can be a very interesting event if you do not have the proper materials and accessories in your classroom while you are teaching your students. Here’s a short list of what every successful youth minister or youth leader needs while teaching Bible lessons to their youth ministry.
The first thing you need when teaching a Bible lesson to use ministry is proper material that is base in sound Biblical scripture. When you have material that is found in biblical scripture you are teaching the Word of God to students and you are making sure that the material is correct and accurate. There are a few different ways that you can go out gaining access to youth ministry material which is biblically sound and correct. The first way would of course be to open the Bible and create a Bible lesson yourself for your youth ministry. Doing this of course will take a lot of time and dedication but it can be done if you have a passion for it and you enjoy a lot of writing. Here’s a quick tip that when writing a Bible lesson for your youth ministry, make sure that you can connect biblical stories to the stories of today which will keep your student attention for a much longer time than if you were to just explain to them a story from the Bible.
Another accessory that is needed for a successful youth ministry would be a display system of some sort. Something in a classroom that you can write on or draw on such as a blackboard or a larger erase board. When you have something to draw on in front of the class you can explain ideas and also plan out various different things such as a check list for the class. By having something to write on in front of the class you also have the ability to brainstorm ideas with the class and write everybody’s answers down. Now you can get away with not having something to draw on or write ideas on in front of the classroom, to the best of your ability tried to get one.
Another accessory that every use minister needs while teaching a Bible lesson to his or her youth ministry is proper seating for your students. I have always found that having a casual setting with comfortable chairs leads to a much more engaging experience for your students as they are comfortable with their environment and their surroundings. Now this doesn’t have to be a big splurge and a big spending accessory but to the best of your ability to get comfortable seating for your students.
Finally one more accessory that every youth ministry teacher should have is a journal or writing pad for your students. By giving your students something to write on encourages them to write down ideas and questions that they have about the material that you are teaching. Encourage your students to write down any questions that they have that come to mind when they are going through a Bible lesson with the class. Then you can gather everybody’s questions up and have a group discussion or group conversation towards the end of the class after the Bible lesson.your part if you can to support your local Christian Bible book store.
