Publisher's Description

How can you move beyond youth group? You already know that youth ministry is about much more than Sunday night Bible study and lock-ins. It's about changing the lives of youth and empowering young heroes to change their world. In this book Efrem Smith provides you with a model for holistic ministry that addresses all the needs of youth--body, soul and spirit. Powerful stories from Smith's urban multiethnic context shape the content of Raising Up Young Heroes. He shows how the fashion, music and lifestyle of the hip-hop culture are permeating youth culture and how you can enter that culture to help your youth meet Jesus. The principles that are the foundation of Raising Up Young Heroes are designed to serve the whole body of Christ. So whatever your own youth group context, you can benefit from the Smith's rich storehouse of experience and his huge heart for today's youth.

Editorial Reviews

"Efrem Smith has committed much of his life to challenging and equipping ordinary young people to live extraordinary lives of influence. And that's what Raising Up Young Heroes is all about. It's a practical guide to helping teens become spiritual influencers--heroes for God--in their neighborhoods, schools, churches and anywhere that God has given them influence. It flows from Efrem's years of ministry experience and his passion to see young people live up to their God-given potential as kingdom builders. Come catch his contagious enthusiasm and grab hold of his powerful insights!"
"Informative, practical and relevant are the words that come to mind as I reflect on Raising Up Young Heroes. Efrem's story-telling style of sharing biblical truth and words of encouragement to today's youth worker is on point! I am appreciative of his efforts to empower adult leaders with tools to minister to multiethnic diverse youth populations."
"Raising Up Young Heroes is on point! Once you read it you'll want to get out there where teens really live and help them embark on a journey that can ultimately CHANGE THEIR WORLD. Efrem has captured a timely truth in these pages that the church desperately needs to hear. Based on biblical principles, these practical solutions will inspire, inform and equip parents, youth workers and pastors to become the revolution."
"In a youth ministry world where what normally passes for new is really recycled stuff from the 70s and 80s, Efrem Smith stands out: he's an original thinker. Sure, people have thrown around the word holistic for a while, but Efrem shows us how to implement a real-life ministry that truly is just that."
"Raising Up Young Heroes prods us to a whole new way of looking at youth ministry. Efrem's life has been all about seeing the potential of young people in a variety of ministry contexts, and he calls youth workers everywhere to stir a generation of lively young revolutionaries into action. His whole- person approach to ministry moves us beyond programs and activities into a relational approach that sees kids as fully integrated beings who can and will change their world. This is an invitation to proclaim to contemporary students a genuine gospel of the kingdom that touches every area of their lives and frees them to serve their world as God intended."

    Scratches the surface. The author has great ideas..but no substance or details to attain the idea. Many churches today are full of "Leader" with vision. They know WHAT to do, but lack the capacity to make it happen. This is another Christian author telling you what you need to do...but not how. Sad, very sad.
