Have you guys wandered those ‘gray’ areas of youth ministry? You know – “How involved should I let my own kids be in the student ministry?” “What do I do over the summer – program or respite?” “Should I combine or separate my junior high and senior high kids?”
I gathered ten of my youth ministry friends and we created a guide to navigating some of the more common gray areas of youth ministry. Each one of us ‘took a side’ – talked about why we prescribe to that particular philosophy – and then gave you some ‘food for thought’ questions as a landing pad for developing your own philosophy.
This resource is written by ‘in-the-trenches-living-youth-ministry-day-to-day’ people. So it’s practical – and it’s time-tested. And the great thing is – GRAY NO LONGER! Regardless of where you land, 2 Sides to Youth Ministry can serve as the runway lights as you touch down somewhere.
So pick up a copy for an easy, practical read– hand copies out to people on your youth ministry team and wrestle through some of the questions together – provide one for your pastor to help explain where you’re going and why you’re going there! It’s an inexpensive answer to some of those nagging questions you’ve always grappled with in youth ministry – and you get to customize it for your context using wisdom of seasoned youth workers.
