Learn before You Leap is a collection of 101 case studies designed to help youth workers grow. By employing a "problem centered" learning strategy, this book gives new and experienced youth workers a chance to consider and discuss the kinds of real-life situations you'll face in the ministry. This book provides opportunities to think carefully about how you'll respond to particular issues that arise in youth ministry, and sets the context for discussing these solutions with colleagues and mentors.
The case studies are divided into six sections for easy reference:
So, You Want to be a Youth Worker.
Music, Media, and the Message
Dealing with difficult issues
The Bible, Theology, and Christian Education
Recreation, Retreats and Road Trips
Worship, Prayer, and Evangelism
Each case study includes a fully developed interview worksheet on the given topic-appropriate to a formal classroom setting, an online threaded discussion, an informal youth ministry network lunch, a one-on-one internship discussion over coffee, or an individual reading.

Wisdom comes with experience, and to have foreknowledge of what is coming or could come produces the opportunity to be forearmed on how to respond. Learn Before You Leap by Kevin Turner gives youth workers the opportunity to learn through a rich variety of potential youth ministry situations diverse beyond their years of actual experience.
