This book has been written to help leaders grow effective Christian youth ministry from start to finish. Reading this £10 (approx. US$13.25), nearly 400-page book gives you over 27 years of experience. It's packed with loads of how-tos, from writing a Bible talk to leading a small group, dealing with conflict to working with parents and the wider church - all shared with lots of STORIES involving God's great power and shaving foam. It also has key values for youth ministry to remind us what's important.
