There's only one thing that has the potential to bring lasting change to students' lives: the gospel of Jesus Christ. In this guidebook for youth ministry leaders, a host of experienced youth workers lay out a vision for the gospel as the centre of every facet of ministry to young people.
Offering practical guidance related to teaching, implementing small groups, interacting with parents, leading mission trips, building community and more, each chapter equips youth leaders to effectively address students' hearts and see God work in and through their lives.
"We see the lamentable statistics about younger people walking away from the church, despite every attempt over the last couple of generations either to turn up the cool factor or to fight the culture wars - or both. The contributors point to a better way... This book is not only a wake-up call, it is a practical guide for ministry to our younger brothers and sisters."?
