Publisher's Description

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.
