Product Description

‘Youth Work from Scratch’ offers practicing Youth Workers practical advice and instruction for establishing, revitalizing and growing a Church Youth Project.

Mark Saunders, editor of ‘Youthwork Magazine’ and experienced leader, has seen too many Churches plough finance and resources into youth work projects without clear vision and solid planning. Now Mark has written a how-to guide for new and existing projects to establish a firm, meaningful foundation that will become a spiritually healthy group.

Inside you’ll find advice and help for:
• Jumpstarting an Old Project
• Envisioning the Whole Church
• Recruitment & Training Your Volunteers
• Establishing Spiritual Disciplines & Prayer Support
• Things To Do in your First Term
• Encouraging Young Leaders
• Building for the Long Haul
• Recognizing Your Own Boundaries (When To Rest)

With both practical and spiritual help, this book is a lifeline to fresh on the job youth works. When applied with faith, enthusiasm and confidence the contents of this fantastic book could help build a successful career and a stand-out ministry that will draw young people towards Church and faith.

Many churches and Christian organizations have ploughed money and resources into youth work projects, only to see their initiatives wither and with it their confidence and enthusiasm.

With case studies and principles which address both new projects and those which require a 'jumpstart', plus specific chapters which look at how to regenerate an old project, Martin Saunders applies his considerable experience to help such youth ministries change direction for the better. He addresses a host of 'big picture' issues such as: envisioning your church; recruiting and training volunteers and different models of youth ministry as well as spiritual ones such as adopting strong spiritual disciplines and soliciting prayer support.

Practical areas are also considered: your first term; how do you encourage young people to lead; how do you build for the long-term and what to do when you run out of steam. Youthwork from Scratch is a truly unique book and a must for any church leader involved in youth ministry.
