Young People + Mission

A Practical Guide

Edited by Alison and David Booker


Price: £11.99
Publisher:Church House Publishing (CHP) part of Hymns Ancient & Modern
This is part one of a series of books which have been commissioned by Church House Publishing to explore the themes of the Church of England National Youth Strategy and are aimed at Youth Workers and leaders who are seeking professional qualifications in this area of work. The contributors are all experienced youth workers and give a breadth of teaching which is full of hints and tips, practical help, guidance for resources, and real life case studies. The mission field for youth is sometimes neglected and treated instead as an add-on to the work in clubs and societies. This book underpins the value of treating young people to work with God in building his kingdom here on earth and tapping the resources and skills of young people. Youngsters work not only in church environments but also in the wider world and to take their mission based belief to others is a vital area of their ministry. As a resource for teachers and workers this series should prove of great value.
