Item Description...
This much needed book presents the findings of the most exhaustive study of Protestant youth ministers in America ever attempted. It is an exploration of the hopes, frustrations, needs, and effectiveness of youth ministers, with invaluable insight about the state of the professions of youth ministry.

Publishers Description
A first-of-its-kind study of Protestant youth ministers reveals the hopes, frustrations, and effectiveness of today's youth workers.Of the 7,000 youth workers assembled in 1996 under Atlanta's Georgia Dome, a sample of 2,130 full-time youth ministers from dozens of Protestant denominations and parachurch organizations answered a battery of exhaustive, deliberate questions covering: What they liked best about youth ministryWhat particularly pleased them in their work with youthWhat they found most encouraging or discouragingTheir biggest obstacle to an effective youth ministryTheir biggest concern in youth ministryTheir answers revealed a dedicated group of professionals, concerned a out the students in their ministries, but troubled with a variety of perplexing issues. And their answers form the backbone of Youth Ministry That Transforms, a comprehensive analysis of this groundbreaking study (funded by the Lilly Endowment) focusing on the hopes, frustrations, and effectiveness of today's youth workers.Spearheaded by Merton Strommen--one of America's most exemplary and influential thinkers and authors in youth and family ministry--the research-writing team is joined by Karen E. Jones and Dave Rahn of Huntington (Indiana) College's Link Institute for Faithful and Effective Youth Ministry, and acknowledged leader in the task of undergirding youth ministry with a research base. These three deliver thorough analysis and sound interpretation regarding the state of youth ministry at the dawn of the 21st century.Youth Ministry That Transforms belongs on the desks and in the classrooms of all who are concerned with this developing profession, including denominational and parachurch leadership, professors, youth ministry students, and thoughtful youth workers themselves. It is also an insightful resource for any who want to understand youth ministers and their profession: senior pastors, executive pastors, and other individuals and committees charged with hiring and supervising youth workers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent read  Nov 19, 2008
Is church just for old folks? How do we invite and engage our youth? How can we compete with all the bling and glitz in the world, aimed at drawing our children in to the darkness? Painful, heart-wrenching questions.
God has always made provision for the way to a better life and future for for us and our children. This is one of the 'must read' books/tools to guide and engage, love and empower our youth as we relay the most important message ever written - 'God loves you', and what that really means for now, and for eternity.
