Free Ministry Resources from Fuller Youth Institute

The following resources are available through Fuller Youth Institute's Curriculum Resources page:

30-Hour Famine Curriculum
"Released in fall 2007, this new adaptation of the 2006 One Life curriculum focuses specifically on combating hunger and poverty through the lenses of nurturing students to become lifetime kingdom followers. With many new opportunities to engage students in discussion, prayer, and action on behalf of the poor, this highly-adaptable curriculum can be used in any justice-seeking ministry."

Vision Generation Curriculum
     for Grades 1-6
     for Grades 7-12 
"A year’s worth of monthly resources for worship, prayer, and action. Use these ideas interspersed throughout your year to continually engage students in catching God’s vision for caring for the poor and oppressed around the world and in their neighborhoods."

One Life Curriculum - this link also includes links to other resources on HIV/AIDS (scroll down below the curriculum downloads)
"Working alongside youth workers and mission organization leaders, FYI spent over a year researching issues related to AIDS in Africa, theological constructs related to the kingdom of God, and strategies for mobilizing kids to care about justice and world concerns. We wrapped all of this up into a curriculum that was field-tested in real youth ministries during the development process before being published by Youth Specialties, World Vision, and FYI (formerly CYFM) in a unique partnership. Now it’s available for free download on our site."

World AIDS Day 2008: 6,000 Reasons to Act (you must provide your name and e-mail address to receive the World AIDS Day resources)
"FYI, the Willow Creek Association, and World Vision have teamed up to create FREE downloadable resources for World AIDS Day, which occurs December 1. Specially designed for adult small groups, this interactive resource features a one-lesson format that will lead groups through a discussion around AIDS in the face of poverty. This curriculum can be used by your whole church, including students and their parents, to engage in AIDS and other global issues of justice."

We haven't used any of these yet, but we will be taking a look at them. If you have used any of these resources or use them in the future, I would love to know what you think of them.
