Product Description

A practical guide to starting and maintaining a youth ministry in an urban context.

Youth ministry has its own set of unique challenges. Place that youth ministry in the midst of an urban context and it becomes even more complex. In Urban Ministry from Start to Finish, Jeffrey Wallace draws on his wealth of experience and insight to help urban youth ministers thoughtfully and intentionally develop their ministry from the ground up.

The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 addresses the big picture, vision, and foundation. Wallace includes sections such as developing the mission statement and recruiting a solid leadership and volunteer team, as well as how to develop goals, properly manage time, and create a calendar and budget. Part 2 then provides a collection of helpful practical tools that can be adapted or reproduced: permission slips, registration forms, job descriptions for leaders, and even charts explaining basic adolescent development. The included CD-ROM also contains all of these forms plus PowerPoint backgrounds, custom-themed promotional material, and editable posters, postcards, and letters.

Publisher's Description

Building a dynamic, healthy youth ministry is never easy. Pursuing that goal in an urban setting presents its own unique blend of challenges and opportunities.

Jeffrey Wallace understands those challenges and opportunities. He's been the youth pastor at an urban church in Decatur, Georgia, for more than a decade, and he's discovered that urban youth ministry isn't a sprint-it's a marathon. Success usually doesn't happen overnight; it happens over time.

Urban Ministry From Start to Finish is stuffed with ideas, insights, and innovations that will add structure, excitement, and flavor to your ministry and keep your students coming back week after week. This resource is divided into two parts:

Part 1: Strategy and Structure
This section guides you through the "big picture" questions vital to building a vibrant urban ministry. How do you construct a solid foundation? What's the vision for your ministry? Who's in your target audience? How do you build a healthy team of adult volunteers and student leaders?

Part 2: Tools and Resources
This section delivers all the forms, applications, sample job descriptions, creative examples, and other material that will save you tons of time. Use them as-is or customize them for your ministry. They're all yours.

Urban Ministry From Start to Finish will help you assemble the right structure to fit the culture of your community and church, and it will empower the right leaders to fulfill your mission and to do the work of the ministry.
