Experienced climbers wouldn't think of scaling Mount Everest without the assistance of Sherpas. The same can be said of teens and their faith journeys---they need experienced guides. In this practical handbook you'll learn how to teach teens to integrate faith, worship, and everyday life; and carry their faith beyond the church walls. 111 pages, softcover from Beacon Hill.
Relating faith to teenagers is tough. You know that Christianity is more than a laundry list of do’s and don’ts, but how should you explain this truth to the teens that you are teaching? What is the best way to guide them to personalize their faith?Worship-Centered Teaching will help you teach your teens to put faith and worship into practice in everyday life. Help them take their faith beyond the walls of the church as you guide your teenagers into the story of God. Worship-Centered Teaching provides both a theological foundation for youth ministry and practical advice for teaching spiritual growth. The authors explore faith development during adolescence as well as topics specific to the art and task of teaching, such as lesson planning, learning styles, and teaching methods.
