Product Description

A Tale of Two Youth pastors is a creative fable that invites us into the ongoing conversations between pastors Wes and Britt as they explore what it takes to have an effective youth ministry. You'll watch as they discover what it takes for students to have a long-term, transformative faith. As Wes changes the way he does ministry, you might find yourself with a new perspective as well.

Detailed Synopsis
Wes is young, enthusiastic, and perhaps a little idealistic about his new position as the youth pastor of the largest church in his denomination. Running into the ministry at full-steam with the best of plans and intentions, Wes soon learns that all the idealism and plans can't prepare him for the struggles he's facing. When Doug, the star quarterback, stops coming to youth group, Wes is faced with questions and frustration from the parents and church leaders. When he tries to win Doug back, Wes becomes even more confused when he learns that Doug began attending the youth group at the smaller church in town. Britt is a seasoned youth worker who has been at the smaller church in town for too many years to count. Doug ends up at Britt's youth group, and soon after, Wes comes to Britt for insight. Only months before, Wes thought little of Britt because of his small youth group, but now he comes to Britt for help. In this creative fable, you'll be invited into the ongoing conversations between Wes and Britt as they explore what it takes to have an effective youth ministry. You'll watch as they discover what it takes for students to have a long-term, transformative faith.
