Today’s youth are facing challenges and pressures that are far different from previous generations. From cyber bullying through apps like SnapChat to pornography to the Sarahah app (which lets people anonymously judge your actions), young people are facing a technology-driven spiritual crisis. Many apps and games, presented as harmless distractions, are becoming traps that rob young people of their time, peace, relationships and, in some cases, their lives. They simply can’t see a way out.
What is Reach4Life?
The Reach4Life New Testament Bible facilitates change through bringing young people to Christ, discipling them, and teaching them Bible-based life skills addressing issues specific to teens and young adults ages 12 to 25. The devotional focuses on the 4 journeys: how to be saved, growing in Christ, how to face challenges, and how to be a change agent yourself. Additionally, the Reach4Life program implements an effective teaching and discipling method called peer education. Peer influence can be such a strong factor in a youth’s decision-making process, that when youth are transformed by the Word of God and choose to lead their peers we consistently see dramatic improvements in behavior and life choices.
