Publisher's Summary

If you long to reach kids and see their lives changed by God, this updated, comprehensive guide shows you how. Purpose Driven® Youth Ministry will do for youth ministry what Rick Warren's Gold Medallion award - winning The Purpose Driven Church is doing for pastoral ministry. It's an indispensable guide to creating and maintaining youth ministry for the long run. It will help you create a solid spiritual team that builds the foundations of the Christian faith into the hearts and lives of young people. Forged around the fundamental purposes of evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, ministry, and worship, Purpose Driven® Youth Ministry uses the experiences of Saddleback Church to illustrate what a healthy Youth ministry can be.
Nine transferable principles help you:

Connect with the power of God for passionate, committed leadership

Identify your potential audience

Create programs that reach your audience and fulfill God's purposes

Implement processes that move students to maturity

Enhance your ministry with clearly defined values

Team up with parents to involve the whole family

Find volunteers and develop them into participating leaders

Persevere through tough times and thrive in an ever-changing environment.Balancing both theory and practice, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry can be applied to any church setting, regardless of size, denomination, facilities, resources, and existing leadership.

Leaders are learners...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Certainly... don't let the date of this book cause you to miss the practical education within. I have used this student ministry system with groups ranging from 15 students in the 90's to over 300 students in the 00's. This system will help you develop a healthy, balanced student ministry no matter the size of your church. While the application of this book in 2017 has changed, the structure of a healthy ministry has not.

Any additional comments?

Read it and read it again (or listen and listen again).
