A youth pastor-whether paid or unpaid, full-time or part-time, right out of college or right out of retirement-has a big job to do. Actually, anyone who accepts God's call to help young people grow as disciples of Christ has several big jobs to do. The youth minister must be a teacher who can communicate the essentials of the faith; a friend who can listen to and be present with young people; a prophet who challenges teens to live lives of justice and righteousness; and an administrator who can manage the day-to-day logistics of youth ministry.

Youth Pastor: The Theology and Practice of Youth Ministry provides a biblical and theological grounding for the many jobs a youth minister does, explains what each of these jobs entails, and helps youth pastors identify where their gifts lie and where they still need to grow. Whether you are a first-time youth minister or a seasoned youth ministry veteran, Youth Pastor gives you valuable tools for evaluating your ministry and vocation. It also serves as an excellent text for undergraduate courses in youth ministry.

Luther Seminary youth & family professor Andrew Root explores the origins of a dominant ministry model for evangelicals, showing how American culture has influenced our understanding of the incarnation. Root recasts relational ministry as an opportunity not to influence the influencers but to stand with and for those in need. True relational youth ministry shaped by the incarnation is a commitment to enter into the suffering of all, to offer all those in high school or junior high the solidarity of the church.

Being Disciples of Jesus in a Dot.com World: A Theological Survival Guide for Youth, Adults, and Other Confused ChristiansBeing Disciples of Jesus in a Dot.com World: A Theological Survival Guide for Youth, Adults, and Other Confused Christians

Becoming a 'steward of the mysteries of God' (1 Cor. 4:1) is not difficult, it simply takes everything that you have. Navigating postmodernism, the cheapening of holy things, and the deconstruction of community, the authors make discipleship out to be a true vocation, not just a pastime. Making theology accessible is no easy task, but through examples from the media, study questions, and group suggestions - all delivered with a conversational tone - Foote and Thornburg have put together a primer on taking a serious step forward in faith.
