Most youth ministry is simply too small. Or too time- or fad-bound. Or based on a model of some sort but without solid biblical foundations. The author is passionate about growing youth ministry that can outlive the youth worker. He deplores particularly the call for 'something' for youth. Something just won't do. Tim Gough seeks to redress the balance. He takes us on an expositional journey through the Bible as he sees it relating to youth work, pulling out purposeful themes through key stories and passages. He offers guidelines which can be used by any leader as he casts this strong, healthy biblical vision to inspire us. Here is youth leadership training for the long haul.
