Why choose re:form Ancestors?
Use humor to help teens learn about heroes, villains, and everyday folks that God selected
Build interest among youth about Bible heroes, villains, and everyday folks that God selected to do extraordinary things with humorous animations that begin each session.
Encourage hands-on learning
Use the re:form Anti-Workbook, which are used for both Old and New Testament studies, to give youth a chance to interact through doodling, journaling, and illustrating to help them build faith.
Use it to fit your context
Affirm and strengthen faith in whatever context makes sense for your youth and your program—whether it’s confirmation, youth group retreats, or even new member courses.
Make it easy for your leaders
Prepare your leaders with re:form’s leader guides, which make preparation easy, no matter their experience level.
How it works
Each re:form session follows a three-part sequence:
- Encounter – Gather your youth together to watch a hilarious animated video (we promise it’ll make them laugh!)
- Engage – Tap into their creativity for activities like doodling, constructing, and journaling that help them dig deeper into their faith
- Respond – Share thoughts and ideas about the session’s question
