It's more common in youth ministry than we want to admit—burnout and failure. Exhaustion, frustration, disappointment, and conflict bring many youth workers to a point where they either choose a new church, a new career, or someone makes that choice for them. After thirty years of youth ministry experience, Len Kageler wants to help youth workers avoid the pitfalls that are common to their calling, and give them the tools to not only survive, but also to thrive in youth ministry. Along with his own wisdom, Len offers insights gained from his 2006 survey of more than 300 burned out or fired youth workers who come from a variety of ministry contexts and denominations.


If you're new to youth ministry, or you've been at it for a while and feel like you may be on the verge of burnout, The Youth Ministry Survival Guide will help you:

deal with conflict and compromise

determine the causes of burnout (and how to avoid them!)

discover how your personality, and the personality of those you work with, affects the dynamics of your ministry experience

develop the best plan for working with senior pastors, church leadership, parents, and students, so you can...

do youth ministry in your 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond!

Don't let burnout force you out! Inside this book you'll find steps you can take to help build fences against failure, and you'll learn what it takes to survive and thrive in youth ministry.
