Product Description

Missional Youth Ministry offers a new paradigm for youth ministry. Using blog entries and responses, authors Brian Kirk and Jacob Thorne invite readers into a conversational, engaging, and compelling discussion about why program-based, entertainment-focused ministries fail to develop young people into life-long participants in the mission of the church. They also propose a new way forward. For all those working 'in the trenches' of youth ministry who long to offer teens a deeper, more substantial, more active role as members of the body of Christ, Missional Youth Ministry is a practical and theologically-sound guide for building a ministry grounded in prayer, worship, community, education, mission, and spirituality.

Publisher's Description

For decades, youth ministries have consisted of programs and activities designed to attract young people to church and keep them occupied until they're ready to 'join' the church. Missional Youth Ministry imagines a new paradigm – a faith-building ministry grounded in prayer, worship, community, education and spirituality that changes the focus from gathering teenagers to scattering disciples.
