Tū Kaha Youth
“As for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Messiah Jesus.”
- 2 Timothy 3:14-15
Tū Kaha Youth is our weekly inductive Bible study for youth ages 9-17. We ask youth to complete Bible study homework each week and come prepared to discuss it on Friday evenings. This isn't your ordinary youth group. We expect youth to develop the habit of daily Bible study.
On Friday evenings, we play a game, sing, hear a short talk, and then split up into small Bible study discussion groups.
The pdf files below will give you an idea of our Bible study homework. These studies were written by our own dedicated team of leaders.
We have seen tremendous spiritual growth in the lives of many youth through Tū Kaha Youth. If you are interested in sending your youth, or just want to learn more, please contact us!

The Six Days of Creation
by Sophia, age 10
The Good Shepherd
by Sophia (age 11)
In the darkness lonely and cold,
the sheep lay on a rocky ledge.
It had no hope of rescue,
and it lay right on the edge.
But the shepherd searched for his sheep,
over hills and valleys rough.
Although he still had ninety-nine,
ninety-nine was not enough.
The sheep ran with all its might,
for a wolf was at its heels.
Bleat and howl, snarl and growl,
the sheep was almost caught!
But then the shepherd came,
and killed that wolf then and there,
and from the sheep was missing not a hair.
Though thieves and robbers come,
the sheep will not follow them.
For they do not know the shepherd's voice,
but the shepherd calls his sheep by name.
Friends, we are that sheep,
out in the darkness.
But if we believe in him,
Jesus will rescue us,
for he gave his life for us,
because HE is the good shepherd.
