Help for Youth Workers, Volunteers, and Parents on Creating Authentic Relationships
Author: Andrew Root
Publisher: Zondervan/Youth Specialties
For more than 50 years, relational or incarnational ministry has been a major focus in youth ministry. But for too long, those relationships have been used as tools—as a means to an end—where adults try to influence students to accept, know, trust, believe, or participate in something. While our motives may be good, it’s possible that by focusing on these goals, we’re not ministering the whole person. When we choose not to engage in the full life of a student, we run the risk of failing them and our ministry. In this thoughtful and insightful book, Andrew Root challenges us to reconsider our motives and begin to consider simply being with and doing life alongside teenagers with no agenda other than to love them right where they are, by place-sharing. As he shares stories of his (and others’) successes and failures in relational youth ministry, you’ll find practical ideas to help you recreate the role of relationships in your youth ministry. If you’re involved in the lives of teenagers, whether as a youth pastor, volunteer youth worker, church leader, or parent, you’ll want to read this book and work together to discover the value of place-sharing in the lives of teens. You’ll see that it’s time to tear down the old structure of relational youth ministry and start again.

DOWN FOR THE COUNT Larry Ferrell died as he lived-changing the world. As the legendary founder of the social network Headspace, which connects nearly everyone on the planet, Ferrell gave away his entire fortune on his deathbed-18 billion dollars, evenly divided between 140 randomly selected strangers. With the money came one simple condition: if any of the recipients dies, their shares are automatically redistributed to those still alive. The result? Kidnappings. ÒAccidents.Ó Murder. Slowly but surely, the 140 are dwindling, and no one-not the rich and famous socialite, not the strangely prescient guru, not the tough-as-nails reporter-is safe. But death is not the end that it might seem to be. Behind this sinister experiment is a secret that Ferrell kept from everybody, including those responsible for the 140 program-and now all the masks are about to come off. Collecting issues #7-12 of the acclaimed Vertigo series, UNFOLLOW VOL. 2: GOD IS WATCHING brings a new level of savage insight to Rob Williams and Mike DowlingÕs razor-sharp thriller, with special appearances from guest artists Marguerite Sauvage and Ryan Kelly.
