By Rick Chromey and Stephanie Caro
Are you in a "small" church? Well, guess what—you're the majority. With the average church in America clocking in around 75 members, there's no reason why "small" has to equal "less" when it comes to healthy, thriving youth ministry. Youth leadership training book Thriving Youth Ministry in Smaller Churches is a great resource to grow your youth ministry in a smaller church environment.
In this stereotype-busting examination of "smaller" (don't call 'em "small!") youth ministries, Rick Chromey and Stephanie Caro provide clear biblical and philosophical direction along with a host of practical ideas. After reading this youth leader resource, you'll discover strengths you didn't know you had, and realize that what you thought were obstacles were only excuses.
Today's teenagers move at the rapid pace of today's society. Because of this, Rick and Stephanie’s youth pastor resource book explores the flexibility of a smaller youth ministry and its ability to be nimble and relational—two qualities that will serve your teenagers better than a kickin' stage or a big budget.
Embrace your smallness and create a ministry teenagers will love to be a part of, no matter how many of you there are.
