The Discipleship Toolkit (DKit) is a series of videos designed for youth workers to share with youth to spark spiritual conversations. The videos are grouped into Six "Stories" that start with Creation and take youth on a growth journey all the way through Apologetics. Each story consists of 1 primer/overview video and 6 "Conversation" topic videos, as well as a leader's guide and student handout.
The UYWI DKit provides a structured way to present the GOSPEL to youth and provides ongoing discussions and teaching to disciple and mentor them through their initial growth as a new believer.
42 videos, 6 leader guides (see sample), 36 student handouts (see sample), all available exclusively through the DKit website and the UYWI Mobile App.
The DKit also provides a simple way for you to track the growth of your youth over time in 5 key areas: Spiritual, Self, Family, Community and Education.
Here's what you'll get in the DKit:
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the Discipleship Toolkit is made available to you free of charge. All we ask is that you sign our Discipleship Challenge Covenant and commit to using the DKit to disciple a small group of youth for ONE YEAR.
Throughout the year we will ask you to provide us with updates on your progress and also share stories of your journey. Each month, we will send you a friendly email reminder to provide updates and we'll include additional resources to help you in your discipleship journey.
You can share these videos one-on-one or in a group setting. You can watch the videos in any order, but we recommend that even if you are using this in your church youth group with a group of believers, you start with Story #1 "In the Beginning". We guarantee there will be plenty of rich conversation and engagement for everyone, no matter what their level of spiritual maturity.
