Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays
The Good Book Company is again sponsoring Free Stuff Friday. This week they are giving away 5 Sample Packs of both the Soul & CY Courses. There will be 5 winners and each of the winners will receive one of these packs, a $55 value.

Soul is designed for Sr. High and College age/ young adults while CY is designed for Jr. High. But both use Mark’s Gospel to look at who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him. Soul is designed to work with the Soul DVD which features superb production values and a carefully crafted script to present the gospel in an accessible and relevant way.

SoulI had the opportunity this week at TGC13 to host a Youth Ministry Leaders’ panel discussion where they introduced these resources. And, in fact, I have taught the curriculum in its previous version and found it very effective.

The new look for Soul and CY was launched at TGC13 this week with youth evangelist, Nate Morgan Locke. His breakout session was on keeping the gospel central in youth ministry and Soul and CY are tools to help you do that. Watch Nate Morgan Locke’s video introduction to Soul.

If your are not one of the winners of the 5 Starter Packs, The Good Book Company is offering you an opportunity to get these resources at a reduced cost. They are offering you an additional 20% discount off any sample or starter pack, meaning you save a massive 40% on the individual list prices. Use code FSF413 to get this offer.

Giveaway Rules: You may enter one time. As soon as the winners have been chosen, all names and addresses will be immediately and permanently erased. Winners will be notified by email. The giveaway closes Saturday at noon.
