Suitable for 15-19yr olds
"Published by New Growth Press in the USA, Real Change for Students is aimed at young people from age 15 - 19+, and includes new material to help youth leaders navigate the safeguarding issues that these conversations could raise. While the essential material is transferable to any age and stage, some UK students at university and beyond may find the scenarios and tone of the original Real Change more suited to them."

Every honest Christian knows the need for change. But how to get there? How do young adults move forward from struggles both big and small? And how does our faith in God affect our everyday thoughts, feelings, and actions?
In this six-session small group resource for students, participants have the opportunity to reflect on one particular area in their lives and then to learn more about how God changes us to become more like Jesus. All of us struggle to love God and those around us, but God has promised to keep working on us. And God always keeps his promises. The change his gospel produces will make your life and your relationships truly beautiful.
This self-contained resource with leader’s notes will encourage small group participants to understand and apply a biblical view of change to their lives and relationships.
Real Change for Students is based on the CCEF model of change from David Powlison’s course, Dynamics of Biblical Change. The easy-to-use six lesson format and included leader’s guide encourages students toward an honest discussion of their own struggles while providing an understanding of how a relationship with Christ brings change.
Topics addressed include understanding how we typically respond to trouble and pressure; how the cross of Christ brings comfort, help, and change; and how we can grow to be like Christ in the hardest circumstances.
