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 youth ministry, it'’s also essential that you pursue this path. One of the best youth ministry books, you don't want to miss out on this youth leader resource from Rick Lawrence.

99 Thoughts for Smaller Church Youth Workers
$4.99
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.
