"Grounded": New Youth Ministries Resource Now Available

Shortly after my relocation to Utah for seminary studies two years ago I became involved in a great project through Salt Lake Theological Seminary. After two years of planning, scripting, editing, and production, followed by a year of languishing without sufficient funds for mass production, Grounded-- Salt Lake Theological Seminary's new training program for youth -- is finally available for order!

Similar to the relational approach to evangelism to Latter-day Saints that underlies the seminary's popular Bridges program, Grounded speaks to teens and young adults from mainstream Christian backgrounds who are seeking ways to balance commitment to their faith with the friendships they have developed with Latter-day Saints.

This exciting, fast-paced training program explores ways Christian youth can have honest friendships with Latter-day Saints while maintaining the integrity of their own beliefs and effectively sharing their faith in Jesus Christ. The fully packed 5-week curriculum invites young viewers to dig deeper into their faith and get grounded in Jesus Christ. The program includes a 5-part movie documentary on DVD filled with interviews with Christian and Latter-day Saint teens, a Student Workbook with daily faith-promoting activities, and an extensive Leader’s Guide full of additional resources on the history and theology of the Mormon Church and helpful tips on effective evangelism.

The Grounded training program costs $95 plus shipping. This price includes the DVD, the Leader's Guide, and one Student Workbook. Additional workbooks can be purchased for $5 each. Those interested in receiving a preview CD for Grounded for youth or Bridges for adults can send a request to me via email to or by phone at (801) 728-0334.

I look forward to promoting this new resource and to preparing youth and adults in a cultural and relational understanding of the Latter-day Saints.
