The Journey to Adulthood (J2A) has been our premier youth ministry program for years, but the Youth Ministry Membership offers you FOUR youth ministry programs --- and SO MUCH MORE!!
No more worries about buying the "wrong" program -- with the Youth Ministry Membership, you just choose another one! Use J2A if it works well in your church, but now if you hit a year or two with just a few young people or leaders who want something new, you can use lesson plans from any of the other programs. Likewise, if your church likes all ages to follow the lectionary, you can do that - but still keep that acclaimed J2A spiritual formation process and use the rites of passage and other aspects of the J2A program.
Programs that are now available as instant downloads and offered to churches as an annual membership include:
YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAMS
J2A --- all six years of lesson plans, liturgies (including the popular Rite 13 Liturgy
