More Than Dodgeball - by Joshua Griffin

More Than Dodgeball - by Joshua Griffin

Ratings: (0)|Views: 5,189 |Likes:
Youth ministry is more than entertaining games, more than memorable trips, more than late-night gatherings, more than pizza parties.

Or as veteran youth worker Joshua Griffin puts it, youth ministry is More Than Dodgeball. This book is filled with insights on what it takes to build and sustain a vibrant youth group where teenagers' lives are changed and their hearts are drawn closer to Jesus Christ.

Griffin focuses his attention on four main themes: the heart and calling of the youth worker, the leadership of a student ministry, the volunteer team that serves teenagers, and big-picture ideas about healthy ministry. These aren't just random thoughts—they're practical words of wisdom rooted in his 15 years of experience as a youth pastor.

More Than Dodgeball will encourage, inspire, and drive you toward the realization that your youth group can be more than a source of entertainment, a glorified babysitting service, or "Church Lite." It can be a vibrant ministry that intentionally, significantly, and permanently impacts the lives of teenagers.
