I have written a very practical book to help those serving in student ministry. I wanted to write a book that can help those early in student ministry with everyday and every week ministry related issues. This book will help with all aspects of student ministry including teaching, budgeting, parent ministry, small group success, longevity, student leadership, etc. This book includes questions in each chapter in which the reader can think about and write in thoughts. At the end of each chapter are a list of prayer points related to the given chapter.

I have a great opportunity to mentor new youth pastors on a regular basis. I have found out that many of them have graduated from Bible College and have the book knowledge but have very little idea of how to run a student ministry in a church setting. I had many of these young youth pastors in mind as I was writing this book. I believe that this book will help those serving in student ministry to be better prepared for maximum impact on the lives of students, parents and leaders.
Intended reader:

This book was written for those interested in student ministry. The most targeted audience would be those in Bible college training for student ministry as well as those who are just getting started in student ministry.

I always thought that being a senior pastor was a step down from student ministry. That of course only the case if God has called you to be in student ministry.

I am now a senior pastor in Chicago that get to have my cake and eat it. I am also the director of a teen center reaching city teens in Chicago.

I continue to do student ministry as a senior pastor and I am thankful that I serve in both roles.

I am married to my high school girlfriend, I have two daughters, 2 dogs, 3 fish and 7 turtles.

I pray that God continues to use me in the lives of people. I truly enjoy seeing a life changed by God.

I pray that I never get tired of sharing the gospel!

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!
