In his book What I Wish My Youth Leader Knew About Youth Ministry, Mike Nappa reported that among the teenagers he surveyed, the quality they were looking for most in a youth leader was someone who was following and loving Jesus Christ themselves. More than a cool youth pastor or tech-savvy youth pastor, more than a great teacher or someone who can lead entertaining programs, teenagers reported that they first wanted leaders who were actually living out their faith themselves. It’s not that there aren’t dry seasons. There’s no single right formula for staying anchored in our own faith.

Age-segregated youth ministry, trained youth ministers and programs to draw and entertain youth are a new invention in.

Age-segregated youth ministry, trained youth ministers and programs to draw and entertain youth are a new invention in the history of the church, Brown said. Modern youth ministry is also inherently destructive in its impact. It divides the church by creating generational division and multiple cultures instead of a unified 'body,'" he maintained. Unfortunately, churches have contributed to the breakdown of the family, the center claims.

  • Knights from Bernin
This book is written in easy to understand language, and offers good advice for the new or veteran youth leader. It would be excellent material for youth pastors as well as their staff leaders, whether paid or volunteer.
  • Adrierdin
This book contains countless statistics about what teenagers really think about the youth ministries in their churches. Mike doesn't just give you some facts and figures, he tells you what that means for your ministry and drops in some ideas on how to make a teen-friendly ministry.

I really enjoyed reading the youth quotes along the edges of the page and the "Personal Reflections" question section at the end of each chapter.

Reading this book is like picking the brains of your teenagers for what they REALLY think. Just because they're nodding doesn't mean they're impacted by your sermon...ever seen a teenager with a caffine high?

The numbers and percentages are organized by age and gender, instead of grouping all your grade levels together. There's a big difference between seventh graders and tenth graders who want to spend more time in worship. The survey also included youth leaders, and this book compares the two. For example, 75% of youth leaders think kids want mostly praise songs during worship time, but only 49% of the kids want to sing primarily praise.

This is a book I would love for all the youth ministers I know to read.

Now if we could only get one on adult's opinions of "big church"...
