Publisher's Summary

In this audiobook, Mark DeVries explores the "revolving door" dilemma of youth ministry. Based on his own experience as a youth minister and on his work with churches in crisis, the author pinpoints problems that cause division and burnout. Then, he provides the practical tools and structures needed to lay a strong foundation for ministry - one that isn't built solely on a person. Narrated by the author, this audiobook offers a guide to creating a ministry that is sustainable.

Changed the way I do Ministry!

Any youth minister who struggles with the strategy of youth ministry and details of sustainability this book is for you. Very practical and very inspiring! Can’t wait to put it all into practice!

Great book, Very Poor Audio Quality

Where does Sustainable Youth Ministry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very good! It called out patterns I have seen for years but couldn't put a finger on. A must read for senior pastors (and certainly for search committees and elders/board leaders).

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The audio quality was so poor. It sounds more like a podcast. There are times when the reader pulls away from the mic and you can almost hear that he is in a big empty room with just him and a microphone. The book is truly incredible; I was sad to see that the audio resources were so under funded.

There is so much to take in but as Mark DeVries points out, in order to develop a sustainable Youth Ministry we have to get involved in the details! I am immensely grateful for the nuggets contained in this book and pray that we not only hear the advice with great enthusiasm but that we work the process and put into action the systems necessary to develop a sustainable, thriving Youth Ministry in our churches too.
