- Practical ideas for planning a ministry
- Communicating the Gospel
- Teaching discipline, and more
It's not enough to merely teach a class—today's junior high leaders must reach into the lives of their students with effective, practical tools for following Jesus. This book lays everything out in easy, thought-out steps that will enable any youth leader to take junior high ministry to the next level. Drawing on more than 35 years of personal experience, Dave Veerman offers a wealth of solid, time-tested advice that will make reaching the often forgotten "tweenagers" not only possible, but enjoyable! End of the chapter discussion questions allow the opportunity for personal application of the concepts or for group training.
