Product Description

Reflecting on four-decade-long a career marked by wild social turbulence and remarkably creative and innovative ministry--including game-changing initiatives such as Youth Specialties and the Wittenburg Door--Wayne Rice, in Reinventing Youth Ministry [Again] turns his eye toward those who are to come.

What does the future of youth require of the future of youth ministry? For three-dimensional people at the greatest cusp of change in their lives, set against a backdrop of a constantly changing world, it requires youth, parents, congregations and youth workers alike to undergird the activities of their ministry with a commitment to reality--to remember that the gospel is always, ultimately, a matter of a flesh-and-blood God pouring his life into his flesh-and-blood children.

Endorsements

"This book reads like a novel, incites like a prophet, engages like a story, reports like a history, coaches like a veteran and encourages like a pastor. Wayne Rice is absolutely one of the pioneers of modern-day youth ministry. But don't read this book looking for nostalgia. The whole thrust of this amazingly honest, insightful and hopeful youth ministry critique is about looking backwards only long enough so that we don't repeat (or make new) mistakes going forward. I couldn't have written this book with the eyewitness authenticity that Wayne has written it with, but I've felt and thought much of what it says. Wayne Rice is still giving youth workers IDEAS they can use."
—Dr. Duffy Robbins, professor of youth ministry, Eastern University

"All of us in youth ministry owe a debt of gratitude to Wayne Rice. Depending on your age, Wayne's your youth ministry brother, father or grandfather. With this book, our debt just got bigger. All of us would be wise to sit at the feet of this youth ministry pioneer as he tells us the ups and downs of his own ministry story; shares the kind of deep wisdom and perspective that can only come with years of experience; and challenges us to live, think and minister with biblical integrity. Youthworkers have benefited from Wayne Rice's experience and wisdom for well over forty years. And now, we should be listening more than ever."
—Walt Mueller, president, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding, and author of Engaging the Soul of Youth Culture

"Wayne Rice is (still) one of the most authentic, honest voices speaking into the world of youth ministry. I have loved reading Reinventing Youth Ministry (Again). It is unlikely that we will reinvent youth ministry well in this generation without a clear and accurate picture of where we came from. Wayne helps us do both, with passion, intensity and his characteristic gentle wisdom."
—Mark DeVries, founder of Youth Ministry Architects and author of Sustainable Youth Ministry

    Wayne gives a great perspective of the history of youth ministry, the mistakes we have made (with the best intentions), and some of the great ideas on how to make youth ministry the work of the whole church. He has some hilarious stories about his early days of ministry.
