Publisher's Description

You're looking for a youth pastor. Again. What goes wrong? Why do youth ministries crumble? And what is the cost to students, parents, volunteers and church staff? Is a sustainable youth ministry possible, even after a youth pastor leaves? Youth ministry expert Mark DeVries knows the answer is yes, because he helps build sustainable youth ministries through his coaching service called Youth Ministry Architects. So take heart: No matter what state the youth ministry at your church is in--in need of a leader and volunteers, full of battles and stress, large or small in number--it can be built to survive and to last for the long haul. Based on his own experience and on his many conversations and interviews with churches in crisis, DeVries pinpoints problems that cause division and burnout and dispels strongly held myths. He then provides the practical tools and structures pastors and church leaders need to lay a strong foundation for your ministry so that it isn't built on a person or the latest, greatest student ministry trend. His accessible guidance
  • helps senior pastors and search committees create a realistic job description for a youth pastor
  • provides tips for making wise hiring decisions
  • equips youth pastors to build a strong volunteer team
  • offers creative solutions to help youth pastors set and keep boundaries
  • gives a road map for navigating church politics
  • and more
Building a sustainable youth ministry is not easy, and it's not quick. But with commitment to the process, hard work and DeVries's guidance, you can put together a healthy youth ministry--one that fits your church and lasts for the long haul. Youth ministry can last. Here's how.

    In 2008, Mark DeVries wrote one of the best youth ministry books available in the field, Sustainable Youth Ministry. This book influenced churches all over the country with a sound theology and understanding of the workings of youth ministry. The practical tools and insights that DeVries provided have increased the effectiveness of many local church youth ministries.

    Sustainable Youth Ministry is a must read for every youth minister and pastor, and I highly recommend the book to help train parents, ministry leaders, and volunteers in the local church. I am very excited for the impact that this book will have on youth ministry.

    I ordered enough books for our entire adult committee and the ministerial staff. This book has identified the common pitfalls churches make with their youth ministries and how to structure the ministry for success. We're looking forward to implementing the program at our church and not ruining another young minister.
