Good Kids, Big Events & Matching T-Shirts invites youth leaders into a game-changing conversation. It helps them create and sustain a ministry to youth that is fueled by an effective, contagious relationship with God and others. Writer and youth worker David Hertweck makes great discoveries with fellow youth leaders while moving through three pivotal points:
Are youth becoming fluent in the gospel?
Are youth Spirit-dependent?
Do youth have biblical community?
Hertweck, a veteran youth worker, explains that if those who work in student ministry celebrate some wins while unintentionally missing the big picture—new life in Christ—students will believe the wrong things count. That could have enormous implications for how today’s kids live out their faith now and as adults.
When youth leaders choose to refocus on these values, they are heeding Jesus’ command to make disciples. The teens in their groups will thrive both now and later.
Whether you’re new to youth ministry or a veteran, you’ll find something here that will encourage and inspire you to better youth ministry.Mark Matlock
Good Kids doesn’t promise easy answers... it delivers on biblical ones.Jeanne Mayo
L eadership isn’t the task of simply providing answers. Often, it’s about reframing questions. That’s exactly what David does in a heartfelt way in Good Kids.Doug Fields
T he challenge isn’t easy. We might not like what we find. But as David says, students’ lives are at stake. We can’t afford not to take this challenge and change this conversationScotty Gibbons
