Wayne Rice, a co-founder of Youth Specialties and author of dozens of youth titles, covers all areas of junior high students - physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and faith areas of development. He helps ministry leaders undestand this age-group and the stages they go through, so you can more effectively connect with them. It's a highly recommended resource for anyone working with pre-teen and young teen children, in the church or in your own home!
A comprehensive, expanded and updated edition of a classic work, Junior High Ministry, this is a non-academic though practical manual for approaching and implementing ministry to early adolescents.
