Youth ministry volunteers serve the teens in their ministry as well as the youth ministry leader of the church. Drawing from her 25 years as a youth volunteer, Danette Matty wants to equip, encourage and empower others like her in this essential role. You will glean practical tips and insights to work with teens, parents, and church leaders and you will see the lasting impact of your service. 183 pages, softcover.
You aren't the lead youth worker at your church? That doesn't mean you can't powerfully influence the lives of teenagers!
Thanks to her 25 years of experience as a youth ministry volunteer, Danette Matty thoroughly knows your world: part-time hours, full-time passion--and no-time pay. But she also knows that you're an integral part of God's work in the lives of students and in your church's ministry to teenagers.
This book will help you discover how to maintain your spiritual vitality, lead from the middle, serve through all the seasons of life, and do what you do best. You'll also gain insights into working well with teenagers, parents, church leaders, and other volunteers.
Danette's goal in 99 Thoughts for Volunteers is to encourage and equip you--the volunteer whose commitment, hard work, and dedication are essential to a healthy youth ministry. She's eager to deflate the "just a volunteer" mentality and inflate the truth of the primo skills and qualities that you as a volunteer bring to the team!
Danette Matty has been a volunteer youth leader since big hair was in. She is a freelance writer and speaker, part of Groups National Training team, and director of Christs Place Leadership College, a leadership development program for emerging adults.
