Youth Ministry in a Technological Age
The many and continual advances in technology can be both exciting and daunting; exciting because of the multitude of opportunities at our grasp yet daunting when faced with the prospect of keeping up with and/or affording them. This holds true in youth ministry where, as youth workers, we serve a population that seems to be innately in tune with technology and what it offers. We’re all technological users but much of our adult expertise pales before the intuitive use of our students. What do we do? Youth Ministry in a Technological Age seeks to offer a window into understanding and using technology in youth ministry that is grounded theologically. In this book, researchers and people involved in youth ministry share insights and make recommendations concerning how we approach and use technology in youth ministry, always recognizing our need to be faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
