If you long to reach kids and see their lives changed by God, this updated, comprehensive guide shows you how. Purpose Driven Youth Ministry will do for youth ministry what Rick Warren's Gold Medallion award–winning The Purpose Driven Church is doing for pastoral ministry. It's an indispensable guide to creating and maintaining youth ministry for the long run. It will help you create a solid spiritual team that builds the foundations of the Christian faith into the hearts and lives of young people. Forged around the fundamental purposes of evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, ministry, and worship, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry uses the experiences of Saddleback Church to illustrate what a healthy youth ministry can be. Nine transferable principles help you: 

Connect with the power of God for passionate, committed leadership 

Define the purpose of your ministry and communicate it effectively 

Identify your potential audience 

Create programs that reach your audience and fulfill God's purposes 

Implement processes that move students to maturity 

Enhance your ministry with clearly defined values 

Team up with parents to involve the whole family 

Find volunteers and develop them into participating leaders 

Persevere through tough times and thrive in an ever-changing environment. 

Balancing both theory and practice, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry can be applied to any church setting, regardless of size, denomination, facilities, resources, and existing leadership. Purpose Driven Youth Ministry will help you develop a ministry that equips students rather than a ministry that coordinates events. Doug Fields says: “My goal for this book is to coach you through a plan to build a healthy youth ministry that isn’t dependent on one great youth leader and won’t be destroyed when the youth worker leaves the church. It's not a book on how to grow your youth ministry with six easy steps; it's about identifying, establishing, and building health into your church's youth ministry.”

    " fulfills it's purpose good, but does not address the concerns of the smaller local church. "

    " It was probably pride that kept me from picking up something titled "purpose driven anything", but it's actually helpful. Not life changing, not especially Biblically thoughtful, but, with a grain of salt, useful. "
