Why choose re:form Ancestors?
Dry humor and (almost) grown-up sensibilities
Introduce faith ancestors to teens using a blend of hilarity and solid theology.
Anti-Workbooks encourage active learning with room to explore, journal, doodle, paste photos, and build faith.
Connect with people in the Bible
Youth learn to identify with faith ancestors called by God to do extraordinary things.
How it works
Sessions follow a three-part sequence: Encounter, Engage, and Respond. Youth watch an animated video, join in creative activities, and share thoughts and ideas about a faith ancestor.
Session resources are available by unit or as digital lessons.
The centerpiece of the re:form curriculum.
