I hear: Jesus calling (John 10:27) Praise God!

I wonder: as I wander.

I regret: regretting things for which I’ve been forgiven.

I sing: Old hymns a lot.

Awesome. This is the best tag I have read. I was talking to my good friend today about youth ministry while we grilled and swam in the pool (it was hot!)and I wonder what good books or sources or anything you know of on biblical and Christ-centered youth ministry. Anyway, hope you have a good day tomorrow. - Kendall

Thanks Kendall,

I been working with youth for about ten years now, and I can say that I have only ever read one youth ministry book. Something about "Youth Ministry in Small Churches." It was alright in a common sense sort of way.

I am probably not the one to ask as I would not be considered a successful youth minister by the worlds standards at least, and it's probably still up for grabs by Christian standards. I've always worked in a small church, but I have found that any of the great books such as Baxter's "reformed pastor" or any other great Christian writing is what is worth reading. I'm sure there are great youth ministry books out there, but I just try to mentor my youth by teaching them the truth and have a little fun at times while we do it. We take them bowling, to the beach, and to the mountains but we don't really need a book on how to have fun while doing that.

It's seems to me that my ability to be a good youth pastor has grown in relation to my growth in understanding scripture.

God Bless,

Thank you. I wish more youth ministers thought like that sometimes (growing as a minister as one grows in the Word).
