Publisher's Description

Simple Student Ministry fine tunes the proven methods of #1 best seller Simple Church for the unique field of youth discipleship.Coauthor Eric Geiger, who contributed to the latter, takes a step forward here, neatly unpacking the key ideas of Clarity, Movement, Alignment, and Focus that will transform any over-stimulated youth program into a simpler, more results-oriented spiritual development process. Fun is still allowed, by all means, but the ultimate emphasis on maturing faith is simply essential.

The anecdotal comparisons are current and on-target (Starbucks’ well-publicized decision to retrain baristas in coffee making introduces the idea that youth leaders might also be wise to revisit the gospel essence of their ministry). And case study data gleaned from small to mega churches and parachurch ministries will give every youth leader a relatable reference point from which to begin the successful metamorphosis to Simple.

    Anyone involved in student ministry understands the frustrations that come along with the territory. There always seems to be a plethora of events and programs that compete for the time of both the leaders and the students.Is there some way to change this busyness and start truly affecting the lives of students? That is what Eric Geiger and Jeff Borton hope to accomplish with Simple Student Ministry. The authors simply hope to help student ministry leaders make a renewed commitment to the essence of the gospel (Pg. 2)making and maturing disciples. If you are looking for a new model for your student ministry, then this book is not for you. The book is not another model for student ministry; this book is about a new way to do ministry.The fact is that many student ministries wander aimlessly about hoping they are making a real difference in the lives of students. There is no real goal in mind, no purpose to the events and programs, and no clear understanding of how discipleship is being accomplished. For real discipleship to take place there must be a process. Process is what Simple Student Ministry is about. Geiger and Borton explain how to go about establishing a process of discipleship in any student ministry.This book contains some great principles that can be applied to ministries of any size and any cultural context. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to simplify their student ministry and increase the effect upon the lives of the students to which they minister. Eric Geiger and Jeff Borton do an excellent job of explaining how to make any student ministry simple in an entertaining and easy to read format.Read the full review here http://www.sbcimpact.net/2009/05/25/simple-student-ministry-a-review/

    Anyone involved in student ministry understands the frustrations that come along with the territory. There always seems to be a plethora of events and programs that compete for the time of both the leaders and the students. For the leaders, it seems like there is never anytime to stop and smell the roses. As soon as one event ends, it is time to begin planning the next one. For students, there is always the hype of the next event to try and combat the sure-to-come crash from the spiritual high they got while attending the last big event.Is there some way to change this busyness and start truly affecting the lives of students? That is what Eric Geiger and Jeff Borton hope to accomplish with Simple Student Ministry. This book builds on the same principles contained in the book Geiger coauthored with Thom S. Rainer, Simple Church. There is no new research added in this book and it is not necessary to have read Simple Church to understand what is discussed by Geiger and Borton in this book.The authors simply hope to help student ministry leaders make a renewed commitment to the essence of the gospel (Pg. 2)making and maturing disciples. If you are looking for a new model for your student ministry, then this book is not for you. The book is not another model for student ministry; this book is about a new way to do ministry.This book contains some great principles that can be applied to ministries of any size and any cultural context. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to simplify their student ministry and increase the effect upon the lives of the students to which they minister.
