In the book I’ve written on two areas of youth ministry that have been key points of my teaching and training over the years.
Firstly, I wrote the chapter, ‘How to make your youth group fun and fulfilling’.
The main principle is that our ministry should be structured, participatory, applicable, dynamic and engaging, and that we should avoid using entertainment to make the Bible seem less boring.
Secondly, I wrote a chapter called ‘Think Dual-Action.’
The main principle here is that we should aim the whole youth program at both believers and unbelievers, and avoid the error of running separate youth activities aimed at either believers or unbelievers.
These chapters are only two of the 35 within the book, written by Mike Everett, Eugene Hor, Cameron Hyslop, Ron Irving, Sarah Macken, Dave Miers, Ken D Noakes, Murray Norman, Scott Petty, Graham Stanton, Zac Veron and Kylie Williams.
Overall, I reckon the book is worth reading if you’re involved in youth ministry and would like to develop your skills and hone your strategy.
