The world tells teens that they should have it all, and have it now. Too often temporary passions are elevated over those things of lasting significance. But what happens when teens are given a clear vision of the future, one that rightly places God at the center, clearly defines heaven and hell, and rightly sees Christ—not them—sitting on an eternal throne? What if all of life was lived through the lens of eternity? Would students not see the greater beauty and joy of loving God and loving others, compared to the empty pursuit of personal pleasure?
Through four sessions Francis Chan will unpack what Scripture says about eternity, debunking misconceptions about heaven and hell. He will inspire students to lay aside what is fleeting and passionately pursue God and His mission in light of eternity.
