Creating a dynamic youth ministry is a goal shared by most parishes. But what are the necessary qualities and attitudes for effectively supporting dynamic youth ministry? What practices and activities help young people grow spiritually and reinforce their Catholic identity? Thanks to a nationwide research project that explored the attitudes and practices of parishes with dynamic youth ministry, we now have answers to those questions. This book summarizes of the project's findings and makes recommendations for other parishes based on those findings. Effective Practices of Dynamic Youth Ministry affirms some current parish attitudes and practices and challenges others. The findings are illustrated with the actual words and stories of the youth, adult leaders, and parish staff who took part in interviews. By providing a realistic and inspiring picture of dynamic youth ministry, this book is a rich resource for parishes to use in evaluating and improving their ministry with youth.
