There are many philosophies and strategies that drive youth ministry today. To most people, they are variations on a single goal: to make faithful disciples of young people. However, digging deeper into various programs, books, and concepts reveals substantive differences among the approaches. In this multiview work, a diverse group of leaders presents five major views on youth ministry.
Greg Stier presents the Gospel Advancing Ministry Model.
Fernando Arzola presents the Ecclesial Model of Youth Ministry.
Ron Hunter presents the Family Focused Youth Ministry Model.
Brian Cosby presents the Reformed Youth Ministry Model.
Chap Clark presents the Adoption Model of Youth Ministry.
Using critical insight, thoughtful assessment, and respectful dialogue, this book helps readers explore these five varying approaches to youth ministry, and challenges them to wrestle through and develop their own distinctive approach.
