Jesus Centered Youth Ministry (Revised)
$9.99
By Rick Lawrence

There's a surging hunger among teenagers for Jesus. New research shows that they want a clearer understanding of what Jesus really said and did, and how faith in matters in their lives. In fact, that desire is so deep, it'’s #1 on their "wish list" for what they'’d like to talk about at church.

But are we doing that? Even though we assume that everything we do in youth ministry is about Jesus, the evidence is clear: That'’s not what our students say they'’re experiencing. So what would a youth ministry look like if it shifted toward a passionate, persistent, and permeating focus on drawing students into a closer orbit around Jesus?

Inside the pages of Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry, you'’ll discover the foundation for a ministry that is Jesus-centered, along with the bricks for building it. You'’ll discover that not only is it possible to create this kind of ministry, it’s also essential that you pursue this path.

99 Thoughts for Smaller Church Youth Workers
$5.59 - $6.99
By Stephanie Caro

Serving as a youth worker in a smaller church can be one of the most difficult assignments-but the rewards are undeniably satisfying.

You don't have as many resources-but you know every student's name. Your attendance drops every time that one family takes a vacation-but your smaller size gives you the flexibility to quickly and creatively adapt. You have a smaller pool of people for recruiting volunteers-but the entire church can fully adopt the youth group as its own and engage in life-shaping ministry with your teenagers.

    The Skinny on Communication (download)
    $5.99
    By Jeff White with Jeffrey Wallace

    Everything you do and say sends a message to the people around you. So what message are you sending to the teenagers in your youth group—and to their parents and to other people connected to your ministry?

    It’s impossible to meet teenagers’ foundational needs without effective communication. And the more effectively you communicate, the better you can give your students exactly what they’re seeking and needing.

    The Skinny on Communication isn’t about formulas or a five-step plan that will solve your communication problems as a youth worker. But it will guide you through specific principles that can move you closer toward mastering this vital skill.

    You’ll explore practical ideas for communicating effectively with teenagers, parents, and other partners in your ministry—and you’ll see how all of these practices can be rooted in Christ-like love. Prepare to be challenged, and allow yourself to be surprised. And along the way, re-examine your assumptions and seek a fresh perspective on communicating effectively as a youth worker.

    The Skinny on Volunteers (download)
    $5.99
    By Jonathan McKee with Danette Matty

    A youth ministry needs a solid group of volunteers to be truly effective. We youth workers all know this--—but how do we make it happen?

    Let’s be honest: Many of us don'’t do a great job of mobilizing volunteers and equipping them for ministry. Our plate is already full, and building a great team sounds like yet another task to add to the list.

    But what if your efforts to mobilize and equip volunteers actually lightened your schedule? What if this investment of time actually paid back double, quadruple, or even tenfold? The Skinny on Volunteers will help you concentrate on three simple skills that will help you build a crew of effective leaders: recruiting, keeping, and training volunteers.

    Yes, volunteers take time. But you’'ll discover the rewards of investing in a team of people who will love teenagers, connect with them, and disciple them.
