Jr. High to College
7 videos, 50 min. each

This seven-part series featuring Dr. James Dobson (and special guests) deals sensitively yet frankly with some of the most important issues facing teens today. Each segment is preceded by a high quality mountain climbing sequence and then cuts to the Great Room at “Glenn Erie,” international headquarters of The Navigators in the mountains of Colorado. From behind a modest wooden podium, Dr. James Dobson (founder of Focus on the Family ministries) speaks to an audience of approximately 100 teens.

The information conveyed is of immense importance both to teens, and the adults charged with guiding them. This is the type of series that parents should view long before their children ever reach the potentially tumultuous jr. high through college years, and that youth pastors should definitely view and discuss with their youth groups at least once every two to three years. The titles of the seven videos in this series are: “Finding God’s Will for Your Life” / “The Myth of Safe Sex” / “Love Must Be Tough” / “The Keys to a Lifelong Love” / “Emotions: Can You Trust Them?” / “When God Doesn’t Make Sense” / “Pornography: Addictive, Progressive, and Deadly.”

Year of Release—1994
