Youth workers befriend, help, and counsel teenagers through important years in their lives, highs and lows, successes and difficulties. Authors Matthew Murphy and Brad Windstom draw from their collective 45 years of Youth Ministry to help youth leaders be better equipped to handle the daily care of their students.
