What if your youth group were being hunted by something far more insidious than the other side in Capture the Flag?No, your students aren’t being stalked. But millions of Christians around the world suffer political repression, discrimination, imprisonment, harassment, family division, rape, and torture because of their faith. Children of believers are sold into slavery for the cost of a CD. Every 3 minutes a Christian dies for the faith. In fact, during your hour-long youth group meeting, 17 Christians will be martyred somewhere in the world.Student Underground gently but inexorably forces open students’ eyes to the anguishing, world-wide persecution of Christians—and how teenagers can start praying for, communicating with, and reaching out toward victims. Use these 4 sessions (along with the companion 60-minute, award-winning film Behind the Sun) as a high-impact retreat, a lock-in event, or a month of weekly meetings.Student Underground shows why to care. And how to help.Here’s a clear, thorough, and convenient curriculum for leaders, including a plethora of quotable facts about how, why, and where Christians are suffering. Not to mention concrete and realistic plans for student action. Plus where to find a complete underground church service on www.YouthSpecialties.com—a simulation of what going to church is like for Christians in restricted countries.
