Book: Purpose Driven Youth Ministry, Doug Fields. Zondervan Publishing

I realize there are many books out there that will give you advise about how to do youth ministry. For me, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry made me stop and think deeply about my call to youth ministry and how that call looked. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 helped me put my thoughts onto paper, which helped me communicate my vision to our congregation and volunteers. I hope this book helps you with your ministry.


Book: The Godbearing Life, Kendra Creasy Dean and Ron Foster. Upper Room Books

What a great book! Are you looking for a way to stop the "program" ministry and focus on the youth you minister with? This will be a great resource for you. With so much emphasis on ministries to be consumer driven, Good Bearing Life brings you back to what ministry is all about Relationships, spirituality, shaping the soul, and teaching.
