Product Description

Professor Jon Pahl examines the history of youth ministry through the lens of four twentieth-century movements: the Walther League (Lutheran), the Young Christian Workers (Catholic), Youth for Christ (evangelical), and African American congregations (Methodist, Baptist, and United Church of Christ). By chronicling the emergence and influence of these movements, Pahl enhances our understanding of their effect upon both the American church and society. Pahl also explores how youth ministry has been transformed over the years and suggests ways that youth ministry must redirect its focus in the twenty-first century.
