The Darkroom series provides a safe and engaging context for teens to explore 14 key issues of faith with caring adult leaders in church or small group settings.
Get access to direct downloads of videos, study materials, discussion guides, and more when you sign up. All of the tools you will need to lead and engage students in discussions on key faith questions are available to you now, free of charge.
Each Darkroom episode is a standalone topic interwoven with student stories and can be used in any combination.
Darkroom encourages students to ask questions and think critically about their beliefs. There are three main components to the Darkroom Program: 1) Watch 2) Discuss and 3) Dig Deeper.
WATCH – Inspired by true stories of teens today, students relate to the struggles and issues portrayed in each 8-10 minute video. A total of 14 themes are explored from age old topics like Suffering to culturally hot issues like Love & Sex.
DISCUSS – Leaders are provided with discussion guides and tools to help students voice their opinions, doubts, and gain insight & perspective. It’s a chance to break the silence. Ask the unaskable. Doubt the undoubtable.
DIG DEEPER – Additional online study material is available including podcasts, videos, articles, books, and Scripture to help students and adults alike find meaningful answers within the circle of orthodox Christian beliefs.
Everything you need to use Darkroom with your students is available online and free to download. After you sign up online, you will get immediate access to videos, study materials and discussion tools to use as a catalyst for conversations that open minds, drive your students forward, and light a spark within.
WITH 1 MILLION YOUNG ADULTS LEAVING THE CHURCH EVERY YEAR, THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW.
So that cost is never a barrier, we are committed to providing the Darkroom series for free to students as well as churches, schools, and other Christian organizations.
We need your support to get this in the hands of as many students as possible, for life-giving and lasting faith.
