There are no shortcuts in youth ministry - but there is an amazing truth in working alongside God. This book challenges us to step out of our youth work comfort zones and consider what is meant by `mission'. Is it more than just evangelism? Should we do mission for the young people or with them? Writing from a broad spectrum of experience and different perspectives, the authors talk frankly and honestly about their own experiences in youth ministry. Structured around three main sections - Mission through the local church, Beyond the church walls and Rethinking young people and mission - Young People and Mission approaches its topics candidly, grappling with subjects that include helping teenagers to share their faith, ecology and mission, living in a multi-faith society and making the most of a gap year. Challenging, practical, informative and insightful, Young People and Mission will help us to re-think the way we do mission with and to young people - inside and outside the church.
