As You Go

Full Product Description

This is the book that takes the next generation seriously and recognises, at last, that you can’t separate gospel and mission. Mission – and that includes student mission, is not something done by separate ‘department’ of the Church, it is the very nature of Christian discipleship.

Alvin Reid is wise enough, experienced enough and down to earth enough to set his book on building a Christ centred student ministry in the secular sphere – its’ where they live. If you need biblical proof of the sense of that, of eh 40 miracles recorded in Acts, 39 take place outside of the ‘church’ walls.

What’s needed, he proposes, are the 4-Gs: God, the gospel, a goal and a gathering. Sadly, these have been supplanted with a drive to engage students with mere events, activities and entertainment rather than encouraging them to embrace the missional life.

The author provides a pragmatic approach for refocusing your student ministry with an approach that offers a dramatic and biblical change for the contemporary church, a change you as a student leader will be seeking already and that your students need right now.

As You Go by Alvin L. Reid was published by Think in May 2013. The ISBN for As You Go is 9781612913025.

Publisher's Description

The mission of God lies at the very center of Christianity, but it has been lost in religious activity and institutionalism, particularly in student ministry. Student ministry today must shift from events and entertainment in its focus to a missional posture with a goal of raising a generation of missionaries. But what does it mean to be a missionary and live a missional life? It is just as we've been commanded in the Great Commission: we must make disciples as we go, whether at school, in our homes, or in another country. In As You Go, Alvin Reid provides a pragmatic approach to the shifting of student ministry from events, entertainment, and enthusiasm to embracing a missional life - an approach that offers a dramatic and biblical change for the contemporary church, a change many student leaders seek and students today need.

“Alvin Reid stands apart among educators as a high-energy, proactive, and experienced leader in the field of youth ministry. In As You Go, he casts a powerful light on the way forward and helps us see that youth ministry has a purposeful role in God’s mission to restore His glory. You will be highly engaged while you read this book and greatly motivated when you put it down! That’s just what we need in youth ministry today.” — Roger Glidewell, president, Global Youth Ministry.

" Dr Reid challenges the youth pastor, volunteer, pastor, parent, and teen to take a look at how they are leading and to live missionally according to Scripture. Everyone needs to pick up this book and read it. I pray this book speaks into the lives of many youth pastors and leaders and challenges all of us to lead as we go.” — Brian Mills, youth pastor, Long Hollow Baptist Church, Henderson, Tennessee; coauthor of Checkpoints.

“Alvin Reid makes a unique contribution. He calls for the blending of missional ecclesiology and Christ-centered identity in order to release a wave of well-discipled students who love the church and are dialed into God’s mission. Pastors and parents should read this book and collaborate for a future generation of diverse, culture-renewing, Christ-proclaiming missionaries who turn the world upside down. I lookforward to implementing these insights and watching the Spirit move through the next generation.” - Jonathan Dodson, founding pastor, Austin City Life Church; author ofGospel-Centered Discipleship and Unbelievable Gospel
