Give this out to all my youth volunteers and they really enjoy it. Easy to read, but full of great information

Instantly helpful!

This little book is insightful, valuable and practical. It's a quick read, and filled with useful suggestions born of Doug Fields' "in the trenches" experience. Whether you are a youth ministry veteran or newcomer, leader or volunteer, you will find something you can apply and make a difference in your group! Leslie, a youth leader from Alabama

Excellent nugget, but not a treatise

Perfect book to hand out to your youth ministry volunteers, and to go over and discuss. It's a small book, with one bit advice per page. It's not long on words - this thing is not a book about youth ministry, or how to do youth ministry. It's a short, quickie book of reminders to adults of how to interact and be in relationship with young people. So don't get this if you are looking for a how-to book, but definitely get it for something to give to the team, and also for yourself to look over from time to time and be reminded of some relational things you might have forgotten about, etc.It's also usable in pretty much every church - whether conservative or liberal, evaneglical, charismatic, or mainline, since it isn't about teaching doctrine, but about how to be with young poeple (and not go insane, and not drive them insane).I am quite impressed with it, and certainly think that all youth ministers and youth ministry volunteers should have a copy. Very helpful.

Essential Guide for Youth Workers

What an amazing book! I read this book on my lunch break at work. If you are just getting started in youth ministry, this is a good introduction. It is a brief overview of what youth ministry involves. Mr. Fields also provides good insight for the most experienced youth workers. All too often, youth workers are over worked and under appreciated. This book reminds you of why you do what you do in youth ministry.While I highly recommend this book, I will add that it is not filled with in depth information. It is just an overview, a spark to re-ignite the flame in youth workers.

Excellent Gift For Volunteer Youth Workers

Great book with easy, practical advice for your volunteers. Helps give them a sense of ownership and empowers them to choose something they are comfortable with and run with it. We gave it to all of our volunteers last year for Christmas and I received many positive responses about it. It was great to see them put the stuff into practice. We also used it during our monthly volunteer staff meetings to spark ideas and discussion. Invest in your volunteers and get them this'll pay off a hundred fold.
