Why we
created it.

TEEN LIFE IS HARD

Whether it be school pressure, mental health struggles, Covid, or on-going doubts around self-worth, our world is changing at a pace that leaves many teens struggling to keep up.

We want to give teens and those who work with teens a story that fits in their pocket, and lets them do the following:

99.8%
Increase in Insurance claims for intentional self-harm in 13–18-year-olds rose 99.8% between 2019 and 2020.

What We Created.

THEMES TOO IMPORTANT NOT TO SHARE

Webcomic: A comicbook-style story (i.e. Archie, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman) that can be read on a website.

Our story is an epic morality tale designed to explore & discuss themes every teen must face on their journey to adulthood (i.e. REGRET, LOSS, SCHOOL PRESSURE, PARENTAL STRUGGLES, etc.), all built on the foundation of Biblical truth, with Jesus as The Way through life’s brokenness, back to the God who created us.

What teens are saying.

Biblical Truth. Epic Story.

This story is a love letter to all of us who struggle with the brokenness of life, and to the God who specializes in using those broken pieces to create something new.

Ty

STORY QUESTION:
“Can you outrun your past?”

An orphan with a tragic past and an uncertain future, Tyren Hunter has never had it easy. Forced to work as a magnetic scavenger in the most dangerous part of the city (The Hanging Ruins), barely escaping death is an everyday occurrence. Ever the optimist however, Ty is determined to build a new life for himself in the Ruins, no matter what he has to leave behind to do it.

Will Ty continue to bury his past to survive, or does his past hold value for the future? (See Genesis 50:20)

Liv

STORY QUESTION:
“How far would you go to find the truth?”

Liv is an outspoken young woman with big dreams and an even bigger secret. On the surface, she’s just another teenage girl with a tight group of friends and an awkward high school crush. After dinner and homework however, Liv sneaks into the shadows as the ill-famed conspiracy theorist ‘Skylar’. Determined to expose the city’s dark magnetic secrets, and save everyone from a doom they don’t know is coming.

Will Liv find what she’s been seeking, or will she discover a deeper truth ahead? (See Proverbs 2:3-6)

Funding Goal: $250,000

PROJECTED REACH: 100,000 Teens
PRODUCT DELIVERABLE: Chapters 1&2 (12 Parts)

A massive amount of time, effort, and investment goes into bringing Ty + Liv’s 3-part chapters to life (See: Ty Part-01 / See: Liv Part-01), but we’re committed to making this experience as accessible to as many teens as possible, because we don’t want limited access to resources to limit the access to transformative conversations for any teen.

That said, the production expenses and outreach needed to bring this story’s first two chapters to 100,000 students is estimated to be $250,000.  We’re building an incredible bench of youth ministry partners who will help us on this adventure, but we’re seeking the support of others to help lighten the financial load.

FAQs

Each year, a 3-part story for both Ty and Liv will be released over a four month period of time.  While early access for Part-01 is available now, the saga’s official launch is slated for the later part of 2022 when Chapter 1’s final four episodes are released (Ty/Liv Parts 02-03).  The adventure will continue in Chapter 2 (Ty/Liv Parts 04-06) which is slatted to be released within a year of the release of Chapter 1.

No.  This project is in no way related to The Way International organization.

That show is amazing, and we love Star Wars, but this project is in no way related to The Mandolorian.

“The Way” is one of the earliest terms used to describe what is now known as Christianity (Acts 9:2; 19:9, 23; 22:4; 24:14, 22). It evokes the idea of a path or route that God has made available through Jesus (John 14:6-7) that leads back him.

The term “Yahweh” comes from the Hebrew word YHWH, which through its long and winding history of translation through several languages (Hebrew, Greek, and English) is one of several names for God. Following the Jewish exile into Babylon in the 6th century B.C., the term began to take on an increasingly sacred standing among the other names which described God, so much so that many within the Jewish faith withheld speaking the word aloud, out of reference for God. For that reason, we often refer to this project simply as The Way.

Yes! While the story will deal with mature, real-world situations and conflicts, the content will be delivered in a PG-13 tone without any profanity, explicit sexual content, or gratuitous violence. Our primary goal however, is to simply tell an authentic story about the human experience, and how that experience can connect us back to God through Jesus.

We created The Way as a love letter to all of us who are struggling with the brokenness of life, and to the God who specializes in working with all those broken pieces to create something new.
