As a leader, volunteer, or church worker, your job is to remind youth that they’re loved by Jesus and by their congregation. At its core, youth ministry is about connecting childhood to adulthood and laying a strong foundation that encourages members to stay connected to the church throughout their lives.
To do that, you need to be encouraged too. That’s where this book comes in. In it, you’ll read chapters written by people who know what it’s like to serve teens and their Savior, and you’ll find guidance, encouragement, and advice on leading a youth ministry that supports young adults in their faith for life.
Mark Kiessling is Director of LCMS Youth Ministry. He works closely with the LCMS Youth Gathering and supports the leadership, service, resourcing, and networking functions of LCMS Youth Ministry.
