These resources are great for discussion and giving clear messages. The videos, while a little dated, are engaging and give a solid message that students can discuss easily. Really good leader guide resources and clean and clear handbooks for participants. Course is versatile in that it is appropriate for cementing knowledge and understanding for young believers but also great for those who are new to Christianity.
I bought this material to use with a small group of teens that do Bible study with me. All of them have heard about Jesus before, but it's amazing to see them finding out who He really is, as the sessions go by. The material is complete, with ideas of activities to do with groups where members already know each other, or with recently formed groups. The videos are very well produced and straight to the point. I love it!
We're chose to use Soul to help prepare candidates for Confirmation, as this is aimed at teenagers and young adults.
The material is easy to use and has helped people to see who Jesus is and why Jesus came.
Having used the CE course successfully several times, we bought the CY Nano materials for our young youth group. Sadly, the DVD presentations were wierd (random lights and empty warehouses), and boring (I'm sure Nate is a lovely guy, but someone needs to tell him a joke - he rarely smiles).
The overall result was disappointing and we cannot recommend it - unlike the adult version, where RIco is inspiring. Sorry guys.
We chose CY because the content is Jesus centered and straight forward. The style and method are well oreinted towards the target age group and the year 2012.
4 Stars because the material is slightly UK heavy, specifically the available additional material. That doesn't bother us much though because we had to translate the whole course anyway (with permission).
Excellent materials - used in secondary school CU
