Read Scriptures App

The Read Scriptures app has to be one of the best Bible apps around for encouraging young adults to read scripture on their own and see how the Bible is one large story that all flows together. It allows the reader to not only track where they are reading but it also breaks up the Bible in sections that we believe are very helpful to understand the larger story.

On top of that, each section has an intro video that’s extremely helpful and simple at the same time to help the reader understand more.

This app has been created from the folk behind the Bible Project, and you may well recognise some of the videos, as this Bible app has become an awesome home for all their videos.

We highly recommend this app for young people 15+

WOF Refresher Scenarios

We have had over 270 youth and children’s leaders complete our WOF training day. As part of your ongoing development, we ask that you sit down with your leadership teams and work through at least some of the scenarios listed below first citing any material from the WOF manual that may be relevant, then discussing what you would do and why.

 

  1. A 16-year-old confides in you that they are regularly smoking marijuana and occasionally P and pleads with you not to tell their parents… What would you do?
  2. You are considering running a hunting camp for teens which involves firearms. Using the Wof manual, what steps will you have to take to ensure this is a safe camp that parents will consent to their teens attending?
  3. You are a male leader asked to drive a van load of girls home after an evening activity because no female leaders have their full license.
  4. One of the young males in your youth group has begun to excessively hug one of the female leaders and you have noticed the hugs grow longer in time.
  5. It’s Friday night and youth groups about to start but this week we are driving off site to go bowling. You overhear some of your volunteer leaders chatting about their day. One of them who is also one of your drivers has just been out for an after work drink before youth group.
  6. One of your single female adult youth leaders lets you know that a 15-year-old boy in the youth group is being physically abused at home, and so he has moved into her flat to protect him from the violence.
