But at times, you may feel ill equipped to lead, or you may not even be sure of the direction the ministry is headed. Chances are, your youth pastor has a great vision for the ministry. But too often the staff meetings you attend end up more like a list of announcements about upcoming events than a time of real growth and sharpening. This unique, research-based training resource addresses the needs of you and every other adult on your youth ministry team. As you engage in a different discussion each month, you'll discover how to take both the ministry and students deeper by exploring: * Your ministry's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats * Integrating students into the life of the church * Effective family ministry * Holistic ministry * Giving and receiving mentoring * Getting the rest you need * Deep justice * Helping kids who are hurting * Giving your kids a faith that lasts Essential Leadership will strengthen your youth ministry team and make a deeper impact on the lives of teenagers.'
