One of the challenges of leading any group is the ever-present smartphone. Whether students are texting, checking Facebook, or reading their Twitter feed, they have their phones out. As a leader, it can be a struggle to help students understand that you need their attention. There is no question that students should learn to be respectful and give their full attention to the group. But leaders can feel the pressure each week of having to enforce the rules.
What if, instead of fighting that battle every time you meet, you were able to equip students with a reason to have their phone out? What if they could follow along with the lesson, take notes, access the Bible, and share their thoughts through Facebook and Twitter? That’s the purpose behind the new Bible Studies for Life: Students app.
The app is available on all iOS devices and contains all of the content of the Personal Study Guide. In addition, the app has some great features to equip students to interactively engage with the material, live out what they learn, and share what they learn with others.
- Notes within the app allow students to record what matters to them and reference their thoughts later.
- Multiple translations will allow students to choose among HCSB, NIV, ESV, and KJV for the session or switch between them at any time.
- Twitter and Facebook integration encourages students to share what they learn with their friends from within the app.
- An entire quarter’s worth of material is delivered with each purchase. That’s 13 full-length sessions for $2.99.
With the Bible Studies for Life: Students App, you won’t have to worry about students forgetting their Personal Study Guide. Rather than asking them to put away their phone, you’ll encourage them to use it to engage with the session. Download it from the App Store for free and get three full sessions to sample.
