Chapter One

why become a contagious christian?


the contagious zone


1. Call the group together.

2. Welcome students to Session 1 of the Becoming a Contagious Christian Youth Edition course.

3. Introduce yourself.

Get Connected

As you welcome students to the course, keep in mind that your attitude will go a long way toward setting the tone for the session. If you're upbeat and excited about the things your students are going to learn, your students will pick up on it. If you're open and honest, you'll find that your students will be more willing to respond when it comes time for them to talk.

One way to do this is to personalize the opening and closing prayers for each session. In addition to praying for your students and the session, pray for a friend or family member whom you want to come to Christ. Continue to pray for this person and for your relationship with him or her throughout the course. The more students hear how God is using you-even with your weaknesses-in your friend's life, the more students will be open to practicing these principles in their own lives.

Opening Prayer

Dear Father, thank you for the love and forgiveness you've shown each person in this room. Thank you for giving each of us the incredible privilege of being used by you to help others find your love and forgiveness. We ask that you give us the confidence and wisdom to share your love with our friends and family in ways that will make a difference in their lives. Help us to become contagious Christians, spreading our faith to those around us. In Christ we pray, amen.

The suggested times for each segment are guidelines to give you a framework for covering the contents portion of each session in 60 minutes. See pages 15-17 for more information.

A Word of Introduction

Student's Guide page 9.

NOTE: You can view the corresponding Student's Guide page on the page opposite each Leader's Guide page.

Turn to page 9.

When you hear the word contagious, you probably think of sickness and disease. But not all contagious things are bad. Laughter can be contagious. One person starts, then another person joins in, and before you know it you've got an entire roomful of laughing people.

Christ's love is like that. One person tells another about it, that person tells someone else, and before you know it you've got a whole family, school, or neighborhood full of people who know and love Jesus. At least, that's the way things can be-if enough people make the decision to become contagious Christians.

If you've ever helped someone commit his or her life to Christ, you already know how awesome it is to be a part of God's plan. If you haven't had the chance yet, you'll discover it's a feeling you'll never forget. Nothing in this world is as rewarding as knowing something you said or did made a difference in a person's life for eternity. Our goal is that very soon all of us will experience being used by God this way.

In this first session, we'll be talking about relational evangelism. First, we'll find out what the myths are about evangelism and evangelists. Then we'll look at what relational evangelism really is. Next, we'll look at what the Bible says about sharing our faith. Finally, we'll start an Impact List of people with whom we want to share Christ's love.
