Each group lasts thirteen weeks, providing an opportunity for teens to connect and support one another. The resource book used is Pure Teens: Honoring God, Relationships, and Sex by Dr. John Thorington. Some of the topics include: A Deadly War Declared, Your Future is at Stake, The Brain—Hooked or Healthy, Becoming Who God Made You, Putting on the Full Armor, Living in the Promised Land, and more.
