Publisher's Description

Youth ministry is one of the most rewarding professions in the world. But it also can be exhausting, overwhelming, captivating, tedious, energizing, demanding, draining, and stressful. Can you handle the pressure?

Veteran youth workers and consultants Mark DeVries and Jeff Dunn-Rankin want you to succeed-whether you're trying to land your first youth ministry role, wishing you had more love for the job you already hold, or seeking strategies to lock in your dream job.

That's why they've written The Indispensable Youth Pastor - to peel back the curtain and reveal the truths about youth ministry. They want you to understand and prepare for the unique challenges that accompany this calling. Otherwise, you're likely to be blindsided and overwhelmed by situations that a well-prepared youth worker will handle with ease.

This book provides tools that will help you stay in the game of youth ministry for as long as God has called you and insights that can literally transform the way you approach your next (or current) role.

Chapter topics include:
  • Developing a search timeline that works
  • Where to hunt for youth ministry openings
  • Why acquaintances aid your search more than friends
  • Why the Jones Memorial Carpet matters
  • Initiating change without killing your ministry
  • Helping people embrace the ministry's vision
  • Living a life that has balance and priorities
  • Learning to love the parts of your job you dislike

Don't become a statistic-another person who leaves youth ministry prematurely, burned out from ministry and the church altogether. Make yourself indispensable by following the path toward landing, loving, and locking in your dream youth ministry job.
