DIG is a Youth Bible Reading Program. It has been designed to help young people get started in reading and applying the Bible for themselves. There are 3 components to help the young people doing DIG. Best of all, Dig is free for you to download and use, and limited print copies are still available for free (just pay postage).
The Journal contains all the info about the program, what to do, how to do it, why to do it, and frequently asked questions. It also provides "DIG Pages" for the young person to write on as they go through a particular passage.
The Level Cards
A young person doing DIG is up to a particular level. As they finish a level card (a card with a list of passages on it) they move to the next ones. There are currently 10 levels in the DIG program.
The place to get these level cards from is the co-ordinator. This person is the go to person for the program and is there to encourage the young person as they go up the levels.
The program provides 3 main advantages over the general "just go and read your bible" method young people often attempt that leaves them lost in Leviticus more often than not.
1. Hand Picked Passages
The passages on the level cards in DIG are hand picked for people who are just starting out reading the Bible for themselves. They start with ones that are easier to understand and work their way up to a whole book of the Bible.
2. The DIG Method
The DIG method of unpacking a passage and applying it to life is to Dive in, Inspect and Grow. It is a simple way of getting stuck into a passage and applying life.
3. Regular Encouragement
It isn't easy to get started in the Bible for young people, encouragement is important, and in most cases even necessary for a long lasting habit to form. The regular coordinator contact is designed to provide this encouragement.
