Product Description

Two-thirds of today's teens are interested in having a meaningful relationship with God, yet less than one-third of the are active in a local church. Alvin Reid--an experienced pastor and youth minister speaker--suggests that these statistics indicate that it is time to change how the church does youth ministry. Today's generation of teens is marked by teamwork, authenticity, and a "can-do" attitude. They have incredible potential and a desire to be taught how to be Christian adults. This compelling book provides an impassioned plea for the church to set their standards higher, to reinvent the fundamental ways we minister to teens and their families.

Publisher's Description

"We know how to be teenagers. We want the church] to show us how to be adults." --Kristin, aged 17

Two-thirds of today's teens are interested in having a meaningful relationship with God, yet less than one-third of them are active in a local church. Alvin Reid--an experienced pastor, professor, evangelist, and youth ministry speaker--suggests these statistics are more an indictment of the way the church does youth ministry than of the teens they try to reach.

Today's generation of teens, the Millennial generation, is marked by teamwork, authenticity, and a "can-do" attitude. They are much more than kids finishing childhood--a perspective many in the church have and that drives what often happens in youth group--they are young adults with incredible potential who need to learn how to be Christian adults. This compelling book provides an impassioned plea for the church to set a higher standard; to reinvent the fundamental ways we have ministered to teens and their families. Author is a recognized authority and sought-after speaker on youth ministryViews teens positively, but not naivelyEncourages and shows youth ministers and workers how to have a biblically successful ministryWritten with passion and expert knowledge
