Teenagers can be scatter brained at times. They have talents that sometimes they waste. They also have the ability to be their own biggest critic, and find it hard to believe in themselves. But they all have a mission in life.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Jesus’ mission was to save the people of the world. Now that’s a fairly big mission… what is yours?

Help your class find their mission in life, and take a look at what they enjoy doing for activities.

Ask a few questions:

Do you enjoy singing? Well then maybe you would find purpose in spreading God’s word as a singer, or a music director for a church.

Do you enjoy writing? Maybe your mission in life is to be an author.

Do you enjoy athletics? Maybe your mission in life is to be a physical therapist, helping people recover from injury.

Let’s figure out what might be your mission in life! Ask these questions as part of a discussion with your youth group when speaking about everyone’s life mission and life goals.

1. What do you love to do?

2. What do you have dreams and aspirations of?

3. What you have a talent for?

4. How can you combine your talents and dreams to help others?

5. In 10 years what will you be doing with your life?

Here is a handout outlining everything above to share with your youth group!
