Small Group Study for Teens

Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus issued a compelling and challenging invitation to Follow Him. He’s not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He was Completely Committed Followers. Join Kyle Idleman as he encourages teens to examine what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus.

Not a Fan Small Group Discipleship Study for Teens adapts the original message of Not a Fan to youth in a relevant way. Different than other City on a Hill products, teens will have the opportunity to hear challenging teachings from Kyle Idleman, and watch testimonies from other teens on what it looks like to be a completely committed follower. 

Don’t let the words “Small Group Study” fool you. This kit can be used for weekend programming, summer camps, retreats, or other youth group activities.
