Because of where they are developmentally, junior high students need a strategic mix of education and experience, and that’s exactly what LIVE Junior High offers. Each lesson will engage them in powerful conversations about following Jesus, exploring Scripture, developing healthy spiritual habits, and leading a life of service to others.
All 72 lessons feature topics and questions that engage students more effectively than generic, lecture-oriented curriculum. Each lesson is designed to flow from one topic to the next, and each year builds on the previous year.

Topics and Lesson Plan
LIVE Junior High draws students back to Jesus, showing them the joy of centering their lives on him. They’ll explore how his teachings, miracles, and compassion relate to their everyday lives. And they’ll wrestle with how to follow him in a world that says other things are more important.
- Year One: Knowing Jesus’ Epic Story
- Year Two: Growing Your Faith and Looking Outward
Each lesson challenges teenagers to think critically and figure out why they believe what they believe. And open-ended questions create room for authentic discussions that lead to hard-to-reach places (aka conversations where you find out what’s really going on in their lives).
LIVE Daily App
LIVE Junior High includes access to the innovative LIVE Daily student app that allows you to pre-schedule and automatically send teenagers “in the moment” prompts and ideas for living out their faith.
Each day’s idea connects to the week's curriculum lesson, and taps into different learning styles that make lessons stick, including serving others, reading Scripture, praying, creatively connecting to Jesus, and worshipping in ways beyond singing songs.
LIVE invites parents to get involved
Because spiritual growth happens best when your ministry efforts merge with life at home, LIVE intentionally helps you connect to parents by inviting them to get involved with what their teenagers are learning each week.
This happens through LIVE's parent email templates that coordinate with your weekly lessons. Each email shares details about the weekly topic with parents, and includes conversation prompts to spark deeper discussion at home.
LIVE’s Online Management Tool
Your purchase of LIVE Junior High includes one year of access to LIVE's online management tool (a $99 value).
With LIVE's online management tool, planning has never been easier. Choose which lessons you want to teach from within the tool, and edit or customize them to make them unique to your students. Then assign lessons to small group leaders, share files with your team, schedule LIVE daily texts for students, and access parent email templates. Everything is coordinated and accessible from one dashboard on any device.
