“Brilliant for volunteer leaders”

Short, punchy chapters written by practising youth workers, on the topics that your volunteer leaders want to know about.
Firmly bible centred and full of practical examples, I have bought one for each of our 14-18s leaders. Easy to read but not theologically light weight, the contents page reads like a list of things I ought to be discussing at my leaders meetings. Buy two because you'll want to give one away.


“A great book for people doing youth work within a church setting.”

This book gave much to think about when organising church youth work. It discussed the role of parents and the church and the purposes of youth work. Although some of it was relevant for independant Christian youth work this was not so focussed on in the book which was a shame. Each section has a short Bible study section to help keep focus on the reasons for doing youth work well. Even though I don't do church youth work it definitely provided food for thought and gave me some good ideas.
