Youth ministry : a multi-faceted approach

Posted on 6 March 2014 Gavin Glenn

'Young people are not our leaders of tomorrow, they are our leaders of today. It is a great responsibility, privilege and joy to be involved in youth work and be a small part of helping young lives blossom and flourish. I hope that this book will help encourage those involved in youth ministry to recognize the wonderful contribution they can make, and do make, on a daily basis to the lives of others.'

John Sentainu, Archbishop of York


'Using rich metaphors for the many different roles that youth workers play, this book distils the wisdom and experience of practitioners and offers it as a resource for the Church. There's so much here to inspire you, equip you and above all to make you think about what you do in youth work and why. An excellent book that should be on every youth worker's reading list.'

Jenny Baker; Director of the Sophia Network


'Whether they are serving as employees or volunteers, there is much here that practitioners will be able to identify with, and use to improve and build on their own practice. Each chapter offers searching questions and some key tools to help in this process. All contributors have been able to create a text that is compelling, challenging and insightful.'

Peter Ball, National Youth Adviser, Education Division, Church House


‘I challenge any youth minister not to find a resonance with at least one of the fresh metaphors contained in this book, and be encouraged in their work into a new and deeper level of practice. It will inspire youth teams, reassure individuals within them and facilitate shalom in the lives of young people.'

Alastair Jones, Youth Worker Development Manager; ALOVE UK,
The Salvation Army for a New Generation

'A wonderful book. Take both the wisdom and advice given and contextualize them. The benefits to your own youth ministry will be immeasurable.'

Gavin Calver, National Director of British Youth for Christ
