How do they stay open about their faith in the face of potential ridicule?

"Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Hurt offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."--Walt Mueller, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

"A daring yet hopeful glance into the underworld of teen promiscuity, self-mutilation, and suicide. . . . A groundbreaking resource for parents, youth ministers, and counselors."--ForeWord

"Clark's classic book [is] highly recommended by youth workers and educators who write about teenage stress. It is foundational reading that provides valuable insight into the hurting hearts of young people."--YouthWorker Journal

Today's youth ministry world is one of excitement, depth, life change, and God-sized movement. Youth workers everywhere are gaining more and more momentum as they reach out to the students in their towns and cities. One trend continues to grow for youth workers: transition. Every youth worker goes through some sort of transition in his or her career. In Transit's goal is to equip the youth worker with a quality tool to help make that change effectively. Whether transitioning from one youth ministry context to another, from a college or seminary to a career in youth ministry, or waiting for the arrival of a new youth pastor, In Transit can help make the transition as valuable and momentum building as possible.In Transit is divided into four sections that walk through the timeline of transition for a youth worker: Part 1 focuses on the new call a youth pastor may be wrestling with; part 2 focuses on saying goodbye to the former church and hello to the new opportunity; part 3 looks at the days just after the arrival at the new church; and part 4 concludes with a glimpse into the future. In Transit will guide you to a better understanding and practice when transitioning from one ministry to another.

    There's a surging hunger among teenagers for Jesus. New research shows that they want a clearer understanding of what Jesus really said and did, and how faith in matters in their lives. In fact, that desire is so deep, it's #1 on their "wish list" for what they'd like to talk about at church.

    But are we doing that? Even though we assume that everything we do in youth ministry is about Jesus, the evidence is clear: That's not what our students say they're experiencing. So what would a youth ministry look like if it shifted toward a passionate, persistent, and permeating focus on drawing students into a closer orbit around Jesus?

    Inside the pages of Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry, you'll discover the foundation for a ministry that is Jesus-centered, along with the bricks for building it. You'll discover that not only is it possible to create this kind of ministry, it's also essential that you pursue this path.

    Eight years after his book was first published, introducing the language and structure of a new way of doing youth ministry, author and longtime Group Magazine editor Rick Lawrence has completely rewritten and revised Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry. It's packed with new insight, new research, and dozens of field-tested ideas for planting and nurturing a ministry environment that is Jesus-magnetic.

    Help satisfy teenagers' hunger for Jesus in richly nourishing and sustaining ways by shifting the orbit of your ministry.
