Alongside supports both parents and youth ministry leaders and volunteers to love teenagers well. Drew Hill unpacks the challenges teenagers face and how youth leaders and parents can share the gospel with them at this crucial age. Teenagers want to be chased, and Alongside brings scripture to life and helps parents and those in youth ministry practically connect the life of Jesus to the lives of their adolescent children and friends.
Through Scripture and captivating personal stories from years of experience working in youth ministry, Hill pulls back the curtain and invites readers to step into the unfiltered world of teenagers. How do we start meaningful conversations with our teenage friends? How do we build trust across the dining room table? What would it look like to prayerfully cultivate a group of leaders or parents with a shared goal of seeing Christ transform the lives of teenagers in our communities? Gain practical application and biblical truths to highlight the complexities of relational youth ministry, address the needs real teenagers encounter in their daily lives and engage their hearts rather than just their behavior.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a pastor in Greensboro, NC and also work in in the Global Innovation and Training division of Young Life. I am married to Natalie and we have three children: Honey, Hutch, and Macy Heart.
What was your motivation behind this project? Teenagers are awesome, yet it's often challenging to build relationships with them. I wanted to write a book to help parents and those in youth ministry understand the challenges teenagers face and how we can share the gospel with them at this crucial age.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I pray that they will fall more in love with the God who walks alongside of them and that their hearts will break for teenagers to know Jesus.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I've been in youth ministry for two decades and this project re-kindled my passion to keep chasing after teenagers.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Many of them are quoted in this book: The Apostle Paul, Richard Foster, Jim Rayburn, Tim Keller, Paul Miller, Henri Nouwen, Gary Chapman, Sally Lloyd-Jones, Eugene Peterson, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, and the many adults who chased after me during my teenage years. My wife, Natalie, is the most grace-filled parent I've ever seen, so, other than Jesus, she's my greatest inspiration.
