Individual Resource Success Path

Welcome to your Axis Dashboard! You now have a library of digital resources at your fingertips.

And we know it can be overwhelming and hard to just “jump in” and start using these resources. But not to worry, you are in the right place to get started.

We created a success path so you can become familiar with all of the different resources and know exactly where to go and how to use your dashboard when you need it the most.

Follow the path to get the most out of your Axis Resources and please use the chat box below or email support@axis.org if you have any questions! We applaud your desire to jump into your teen’s world and are on your side as you disciple the next generation.

Start by clicking the tab below of the Axis Resource you purchased – 

First, it is important to learn the “Axis Model of Conversation” before you start using your Axis Resources.

Since 2007 Axis has been working with thousands of families, parents, pastors, leaders and teenagers. Through all of the years we have seen consistent patterns and crafted what we think is an effective and efficient model of conversation.

It’s called the One Conversation Model.

All of our resources go through the filter of the One Conversation Model to help you have conversations with your students.

Take 30 minutes and watch the 3 videos below to understand the purpose of the One Conversation Model and how each resource fits into it.

The “Big” Conversations

There are themes that will always need to be discussed with your student. Understanding issues like gender, pornography, suicide, and drugs as well as philosophical concepts like evangelism, leadership, identity, and relationships with teens can be missed in the busyness of life. These topics are a tool for drawing parents and teens closer because they are designed to be watched together.

Conversation Kits. 

These video conversation starters help you learn and discuss these important issues with your teens. Conversation Kits bring generations together around a common gospel with a fast pace, cultural references and relevant truth saturated throughout.

You can scroll to search the 15 topics and choose which one is most relevant to where you and your student are at right now.

**If you have access… Let’s Practice!

Go to your Dashboard.

Click on the Conversation Kits tab.

Scroll towards the bottom of the page and click on the “Gender Conversation Kit” (or the conversation kit you bought).

Watch the first video by yourself or with your spouse. Download the conversation guide and read through the discussion questions.

*If applicable, re-watch the first video with your student and ask them 1 or all of the discussion questions.
