Inter-Generational Youth Ministry: Why a Balanced View of Connecting the Generations Is Essential for the Church

Front Cover
Overboard Ministries, 2013 - Church work with teenagers - 248 pages
Mel Walker (veteran youth ministry specialist and author) believes that one of the leading reasons so many high school graduates are walking away from active involvement in church is because traditional youth ministry has isolated teenagers from other generations. He is convinced that it is essential for churches to proactively connect the generations -- and he has written this book to explain how to effectively and practically make those connections. This is a must-read book for pastors, youth pastors, youth workers, parents, and others interested in a long-term view of helping teenagers grow up and go on for God. Inter-Generational Youth Ministry is based on Biblical principles and contains a wealth of research and useful steps for churches anywhere. Readers will clearly see Mel's balanced approach to church ministry -- strategic youth ministry that successfully connects the generations in the church.
