Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Designed to introduce and promote the use of case studies and strategic intentional interviews into the growing and developing of present and future youth workers, Learn Before You Leap provides an argument for the use of “problem centered learning” strategies that are common practices in the areas of the social sciences, leadership and business but not yet publicly developed or resourced in the growing field of youth ministry education.

 

Learn Before You Leap also:

  • Helps new youth workers process situations they’ll encounter through role play.
  • Enables veteran youth workers to keep sharp and mentor younger youth workers and volunteers.
  • Uses Problem Based Learning to help promote critical thinking and problem solving in the youth ministry context.
  • Discusses the value and strategies for using interviews as a ministry development tool.

 

Includes ten case studies each addressing issues common to youth ministry organized by topical focus and a fully developed interview worksheet on the given topic—appropriate to a formal class room setting, an online threaded discussion, an informal youth ministry network lunch, a one-on-one internship discussion over coffee, or an individual reading.
