4. Live Devotions
Facebook Live and Periscope both are a hit with teens. Consider doing a daily devotion via live video. Kids will spend time in God’s Word as well as time with you! Try this at a specific time each day of a month. The habit might take off and create some healthy momentum.
Because almost all teens have a phone these days, texting is the most effective way to deliver content to them. Invite young people to sign up to receive Bible verses regularly via text. You can decide how frequently to do this. Then search your Bible for a bunch of textable (i.e., fairly short) verses. You can use your phone or a group-messaging app. But the Simply Text feature from Group has been ideal for us to connect with teens via text. Kids sign up with a key word and special number. Then you schedule texts to be delivered any time.
With a little preparation and innovation, you can deliver God’s Word to young people in various ways. Whatever method or Bible apps for teens you choose, know that Jesus will use it to work in teenagers’ lives. By sharing more Scripture with kids, you’re helping to share Jesus’ hope, peace, and wisdom.
