Note from the Author

Something I’ve learned over the years is the need for have a ‘long view’ of youth ministry. To do that well, I need to be strategic about how and where I serve. Which is why, last summer, I committed to what I call The Summer of Crazy: Two weeks of high school camp, a week of junior high camp, junior high guy’s trip, and a bunch of other events. This was the best, and most physically draining, decision I’ve probably ever made in youth ministry. <P> To read more about why I chose “The Summer of Crazy” and the amazing benefits I’ve seen from that sleepless season, check out Volunteer Youth Ministry: The Roadmap to Effective Leadership.

Since 1994 I've been doing youth ministry at times as a youth pastor, but mostly as a volunteer. While I'm passionate about doing youth ministry, I also care about passing on what I've learned to other youth workers. Check out my book Volunteer Youth Ministry, A Roadmap For Effective Leadership (Foreword by Doug Fields). It's full of nuggets of wisdom, don't do this and don't let this happen to you stories. You'll gain a lot from reading it and have some fun while you do.

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!
