As a youth leader, do you really know what you are getting yourself into? Do you understand that the ministry you have signed up for is often a thankless job? Are you aware that as you literally pour out your heart and life for teenagers in your youth ministry, some of the very same kids you are working so hard to love are going to choose to walk away from God? Has anyone ever sat down and told you that youth ministry is one of the most emotional undertakings anyone could ever sign up for? Well, it's true. But have no fear, because in actuality, the good about youth ministry far outweighs the bad.
Based upon the real-life experiences of over a decade of youth ministry, Green is a book that everyone in youth ministry should read. Green deals with the many emotional aspects of working with teenagers—things that you probably wouldn't find out unless you had spent time in the youth ministry trenches yourself.
In Green, author Rodney W. Wardwell II connects with youth pastors, bi-vocational lay leaders, and anyone who might take on the incredible responsibility of pouring into teens by sharing dynamic personal stories and relevant principles that will prepare youth leaders for the emotions of youth ministry and help to eclipse the prospect of burnout. After reading Green, you will understand that, even through all of the challenges of ministry, God has given you a purpose and a calling to reach your students.
