Stress is an inescapable part of youth ministry. But when that stress takes over your life, when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel anymore, when that stress forces you into a constant survival mode, it’s time to take action. Constant stress is not the new normal.

You’re not called to survive in youth ministry. You’re called to thrive.

The Effective Youth Worker shows you how. It will challenge your perspective on stress and help you find a sustainable rhythm for your personal life and your role in youth ministry, whether you’re a volunteer or on staff.

The first part of the book will inspire you to focus on the most important things in your life and in your ministry. It will help you develop a clear vision for who you want to be and what you want to achieve, both in life and in your ministry.

The second part of the book shares dozens of practical tools and strategies to become more effective in reaching your goals and more efficient in what you spend your time on. These valuable tips will shave hours off your workweek and help eliminate big time wasters, thus creating margin to spend more time on what really matters, for instance your family, friends, and your relationship with God.

It’s time to thrive!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
