If you're a volunteer in youth ministry, you've likely wondered: How did I get here? No matter how you'd normally answer, one things for sure: You're here because Jesus nudged or maybe even dragged you here. That's because Jesus loves you and loves teenagers, and he wants them to get what you have to give. But how do you maximize your time with them? And how can you make an impact that draws students into a closer orbit around Jesus?
When you're captured by the real Jesus, not the knockoff Jesus we often hear about in our culture, then your pursuit of him influences your kids' pursuit of him. And when you're all-in with the real Jesus, you have lasting impact in your interactions with students.
This guide for volunteers is a condensed version of Rick Lawrence's wildly successful book Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry. It delivers a laser-sharp focus on why we need a renewed focus on Jesus in youth ministry, and gives you practical, sustainable ways to put JCYM ideas into practice. You'll encounter page after page of field-tested ideas for crafting and nurturing a Jesus-magnetic ministry environment.
Help satisfy your teenagers' hunger for Jesus by helping to shift the orbit of your ministry.
