Purpose Driven Youth Ministry: 9 Essential Foundations for Healthy Growth by Doug FieldsMy church is very small. And my youth group small as well. The few chapters did a very good job at explaining how to write a purpose statement and gave good Biblical explanations as to each part of a good purpose statement. As I was reading the beginning on this book I was inspired. I felt that my church could actually take some of this information in the book and apply it to the youth group. However, as I read on the information clearly was written for a church with a youth group with at least 50 youth, with possibly 5-10 new youth a year. Unfortunately there was no alternate version supplied or modification of the program given in the book.
It is very well written and well researched-at least at the church where this model was first used, but I find it hard to put into practise 95% of this book in a youth group of 10 kids.

They charge into the role with bags of enthusiasm and quick-start plans groups and events to please the directors church leaders. But to please the fans and the directors congregation and church leaders they have to win games with spectacular results double the youth group. They eventually run out of steam through running for so long and so fast that they become injured burnt out and have to be replaced quit, or fired.
Cancel anytime. It will help you create a solid spiritual team that builds the foundations of the Christian faith into the hearts and lives of young people. Balancing both theory and practice, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry can be applied to any church setting, regardless of size, denomination, facilities, resources, and existing leadership. Purpose-Driven Youth Ministry will help you develop a ministry that equips students rather than a ministry that coordinates events. Doug Fields says, "My goal for this book is to coach you through a plan to build a healthy youth ministry that isn't dependent on one great youth leader and won't be destroyed when the youth worker leaves the church.
