Item Description...
1998 GOLD MEDALLION WINNER In Reaching a Generation for Christ, more than fifty of the country's youth experts send a resounding call that the years ahead can bring one of the most exciting and fruitful times ever for youth ministry. Never before has so much youth ministry been taking place. Yet we have barely begun to tap into all the creative, fresh ways to present the good news to this generation. The authors of this book have studied youth ministry, taught about youth ministry, and done youth ministry. Each writer shares the confidence that God is about to use a new generation of youth leaders to accomplish something new and dramatic. With sharp insights and practical suggestions, the contributors to this book help readers think through their philosophy of youth ministry, break down barriers that impede progress, and maximize their own gifts and the gifts of those who work with them. Along the way, they answer these and many other questions: * What are the primary roles of youth ministry? * How do we reach students who are uninterested in spiritual matters? * How can we find and support volunteers? * What are the issues women face in youth ministry? * How can we minister in ethnic communities? * How should we respond to popular culture? * How will youth ministry change in the next millennium? A comprehensive, compelling new book that expands upon and updates The Complete Book of Youth Ministry, this is a valuable resource for youth pastors, volunteers, leaders, and anyone who is concerned about capturing young people's hearts and minds for Christ.

Publishers Description
Things have changed. The Truth has not. The 1950's are gone forever. The days of the Sunday school attendance award and the much-loved Sunday school picnic have faded into oblivion. Yet some youth ministries still operate as if today's kids are living in a vacuum, unaffected by the changing morals of today's society. How can we reach these kids with the truth of the gospel?
More than fifty of America's youth experts give advice and encouragement to those who long to see this generation know the love of Christ. They help readers think through their philosophies of youth ministry, break down barriers that impede progress, and maximize their own gifts and the gifts of those who work with them. They answer tough questions such as: How can leaders build a relational youth ministry? How can we find and support volunteers? What are the issues women face in youth ministry? How do we minister in ethnic communities? How should we respond to popular culture? How can we help hurting adolescents? You can have a vibrant youth ministry even in these uncertain times. You can reach this generation for Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reaching A Generation For Christ  Aug 12, 2003
I think this book is very good. It has helped me as a worker in youth ministry and also my thesis that I had to write for Bible College. I have read other books on youth ministry but have never saw any like this. It shows you most problems that would rise in ministry,and it also gives good guidance for a leader in this ministry. Every youth worker should have one in their library.
The Definitive Work on Youth Ministry for the 21st Century  Sep 4, 1999
Senter and Dunn have done a fabulous job compiling data from a number of key youth pastors. The insights I gained from this book were fantastic. Dunn's explanation of the millennial generation's needs, and how to reach them is fantastic. Great reading. This book is a must for youth pastor's everywhere.
Excellent Handbook for Youth Pastors -- Great Resource  Sep 16, 1998
I ran across this book in the campus bookstore when picking up some other books for class. After glancing through it I was intrigued. Practical advice, theory that was useful, models laid out so you could see how they worked out on a day to day basis. I found myself taking notes and getting ideas for things I could put into practice.
Thorough introduction to the evangelical Youth Ministry  Jul 20, 1998
Senter provides one of the few treatments of Youth Ministry that is can serve as an college/seminary textbook and still provides practical insights for practicing clergy. Unlike several other popular titles, Senter takes the time to develop a biblical, sociological, and historical framework for youth ministry. He also provides the best overview of the various models for youth ministry that have been popular among evangelicals for the past half-century. Some may find the depth of the book overwhelming in places. It also suffers from weaknesses typical of using a variety of authors to contribude individual chapters, in that not all chapters are equally valuable. Overall the book should serve as a standard text well beyond the turn of the century for those serious about understanding and practicing effective youth ministry.
