- 1 - Pure Sex Small Group curriculum
- 3 - The Volunteer's Back Pocket Guide to Sex
The easiest way to embarrass many youth workers isn't to volunteer them for a wacky game, throw them into a mascot costume for your video announcements, or show old pictures of them (and their acne) from junior high—though those are some great ideas! No, the easiest way is to ask them to lead a small group series on sex.
It's the topic that consumes the minds of teenagers and seemingly infiltrates every corner of our culture, yet too often we in the church get away with weak, tepid responses and teachings on sex. Your students desperately need guidance, wisdom, and truth; how can you best respond?
Drive right to the heart of the matter with the four lessons in this DVD-based curriculum featuring Craig Gross—founder of XXXchurch.com—and Cris Clapp Logan—an Internet safety expert, artist, and writer.
Topics in this series include:
- Lesson 1: Is Purity Still Possible? [13:01]
- Lesson 2: Land of XXX [12:33]
- Lesson 3: How Far is Too Far? [11:54]
- Lesson 4 (for the guys): Masturbation [11:28]
- Lesson 4 (for the girls): Girl Stuff [5:18]

The Volunteer's Back Pocket Guide to Sex
Teenagers live in a sex-saturated world. And for many of them, sex has become a purely physical act, fully divorced from spirituality, love, and commitment. Sex, pornography, and "hooking up" are all met with the same response: "It's no big deal."
Too many of our students don't know where to turn to learn about sex, leaving many feeling confused, fearful, and alone. Teenagers who struggle with sexual addiction or unhealthy patterns don't know how to find freedom and healing from the choices they've made, and they're afraid the church will label them as perverts if they're open and honest about their deepest struggles.
But amidst these sobering realities, there is good news: Youth workers are on the front lines of the battle to shape, challenge, and encourage teenagers toward sexual wholeness and purity. The Volunteer's Back Pocket Guide to Sex will help you as you aid students in navigating a path that honestly addresses all the challenges they might face, while honoring God along the way.
Authors Craig Gross—founder of XXXchurch.com—and Cris Clapp Logan—an Internet safety expert, artist, and writer—don't sugarcoat the realities, and they don't hold back in bluntly, honestly tackling the toughest topics, including pornography, sexuality, masturbation, and purity. Using God's truth as the foundation for the conversation, they'll equip you with practical information and powerful strategies to help you become a volunteer youth worker who helps teenagers live wisely and walk in freedom!
