Why Do Youth Leaders Love Using CY?

We will be highlighting specific resources each month. For the month of July, we chose to highlight CY!

CY is a life-changing journey through the Gospel of Mark for 11-14-year-olds. See the author and presenter, Nate Morgan Locke, talk in detail about the course.



CY is a series of seven fast-paced sessions exploring the identity, mission, and call of Jesus.

Invite your energetic group of 11-14s to bring all their questions – big and small – as you dive into Mark’s Gospel.
Over seven sessions together you’ll see why Jesus is worth exploring!

As Executive Director of Christianity Explored USA, I have had youth pastors tell me that CY is the best resource out there for helping to address the faith identity questions that middle school students are asking.

Here’s what one youth pastor said:

For the first time, I can honestly say that I have found a course that is not only centered on the gospel and Jesus but saturated with it. CY threads the needle of theological depth and age-appropriate teaching, leaving the student changed, encouraged, equipped and hungry for more. If you are seeking a resource that cares about theology, Jesus, the gospel and reaching students with the truth and love of them, then this may be a great course to walk through.

– Josh Cousineau

Summer is a perfect time to review material for the coming year! We encourage you to take a look at CY!
