The most powerful force in a young person's life is his or her family. The importance of this is pointed out in the writing of the Torah in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, where believers are mandated to pass their family legacies to the next generations. The newest trend in youth ministry today is a very healthy move toward family based ministry, a mindset that helps the Church act as a support system, while placing discipleship and training back into the hands of family.  Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry will help youth workers understand their unique role in helping families succeed, and will give an overview strategy of family based youth ministry, as well as practical ideas on implementing this awesome ministry in your church.

User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

The book is short and has a lot of application. I would read other family ministry books before this, but its a good read especially the beginning. The second half of the book is just a quick skim. Read full review
