Youth Ministry from the Inside Out

How Who You Are Shapes What You Do
  • By Mike Higgs
Book Description Flash! Ping! Whiz! Pop! Boom! Bang! Such are the sights and sounds of modern youth ministry. We look for the bigger, the louder, the brighter, and we work long and hard to make our ministry the biggest, the loudest, the brightest. But look out and listen up: God has no desire to see young people caught up in sound and fury. Nor does he want to see youth workers burn out and fade away. All the momentum surrounding youth ministry signifies nothing once youth workers disengage, letting the momentum define their purpose. Mike Higgs, reflecting on over two decades of work with youth, thinks the greatest need among youth workers is a reminder of who we are. We need to set aside the distractions of an emphasis on performance and focus instead on following God in his work in us, our students and other youth workers. When a renewed vision and mission shapes our work with youth, our ministry will become less a cacophony of strategies and targets and more a symphony of purpose and practice.
