Product Description

When a church incorporates the life of their teens into the life of the church they bring immeasurable value, energy, and passion to the faith community. In the last century, churches have come to recognize this dynamic, but still largely do not make teen or student ministry a top priority.

In Teenagers Matter veteran youth worker Mark Cannister brings together the latest ideas and research on adolescence in order to help church leaders recognize the importance of students and to convince them to place more emphasis on this area of the church's ministry. He explores how connecting teenagers into the church's larger intergenerational community enriches the entire congregation, casting a prophetic vision for what the church can become when it truly values its young people.

This comprehensive yet accessible addition to the Youth, Family, and Culture series has been field tested and written in close consultation with youth pastors. The book outlines the resources necessary for a vital student ministry and includes sidebars and discussion questions. It will be a foundational textbook for student ministry courses and of much use to youth ministers, pastors, and other church leaders.

About the Series
The Youth, Family, and Culture series examines the broad categories involved in studying and caring for the needs of the young and is dedicated to the preparation and vocational strengthening of those who are committed to the spiritual development of adolescents.

He shows how connecting teenagers into the church's larger intergenerational community enriches the entire congregation, casting a prophetic vision for what the church can become when it truly values its young people.
