Publishers Description

"Wes is young, enthusiastic, and perhaps a little idealistic about his new position as the youth pastor of the largest church in his denomination. Running into the ministry at full-steam with the best of plans and intentions, Wes soon learns that all the idealism and plans can t prepare him for the struggles he s facing. When Doug, the star quarterback, stops coming to youth group, Wes is faced with questions and frustration from the parents and church leaders. When he tries to win Doug back, Wes becomes even more confused when he learns that Doug began attending the youth group at the smaller church in town. Britt is a seasoned youth worker who has been at the smaller church in town for too many years to count. Doug ends up at Britt s youth group, and soon after, Wes comes to Britt for insight. Only months before, Wes thought little of Britt because of his small youth group, but now he comes to Britt for help. In this creative fable, you ll be invited into the ongoing conversations between Wes and Britt as they explore what it takes to have an effective youth ministry. You ll watch as they discover what it takes for students to have a long-term, transformative faith. As Wes changes the way he does ministry, you might find yourself with a new perspective as well.""

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great read  Sep 7, 2009
This is a great funny, quick read but you will find yourself re-reading it again and again. What a great format for talking about the next frontier in youth ministry. The best part is, you can start applying the principles right away with your kids and leaders.
A Tale Worth Reading  Aug 31, 2009
A Tale of Two Youth Workers is a short novel with a message. A parable, if you will. The message is that bigger and louder probably aren't the best way to help teenagers find a long term relationship with Jesus.

The story centers around Wes, a young youth pastor who has just been hired by a large, successful church to head their large, successful youth ministry. After being at the church for a few months, Wes has encounters with two people that will change the way he does his job. The first is Doug, an influential teenager in his youth group, and the son of a prominent family in the church. The other is Britt, an older youth pastor at a smaller church in town.

When Doug abandons church because of doubts and then defects to Britt's youth group, it sends Wes into crisis mode. He has to know what made Doug choose Britt's youth group over his own. Britt agrees to share his ministry tips with Wes over the course of a few meetings at the local coffee shop.

Britt's secret to reaching questioning and doubting teens? Let them question and doubt. Britt states that part of the reason that youth ministries have no long term success is that so often youth pastors and parents coerce teens into saying all the right answers instead of listening to their concerns and guiding them to Jesus. The solution is to step back and be a guide, and let Jesus do the rest.

This book is a great vehicle to discuss the failures and success of youth ministry. The fact that it is an entertaining story just makes it even better.
great book, fun to read  Aug 27, 2009
wow! what an excellent little book, written as a fable, about faith development. not only should every youth worker (and parent of a teen) read this book, it really has implications for anyone interested in faith development. a quick read, and very well written.
