Several weeks ago I told you all about a book every youth worker must read: Ministry Mutiny, by Greg Stier. You will find that Greg lays out all the struggles and frustrations you have in ministry, including the ones you’ve felt but never identified, and then gives a plan for how we should shape our ministries. Here’s the full review.
Ministry Mutiny is a required text for those in the Youth Ministry Mentorship program because it has so many critical insights for new youth workers (of things to avoid) and for veteran youth workers (of things to change). I put together a discussion guide for the mentor team to use as they go through the book with their mentees and am now making it freely available for you.
The Ministry Mutiny discussion guide goes through each chapter in the book, asking tough questions about the ideas and principles mentioned, along with self-reflective evaluations of our own lives in ministry. Dare 2 Share may distribute this guide with Ministry Mutiny in a forthcoming second revision, but for now you can grab it free right here:
There is NO LIVE Youth Ministry Conversation today! Instead, I’m at the National Youth Workers Convention in Sacramento, CA, liveblogging the event. Go to http://www.nywc.com/live to follow the play-by-play of thoughts, ideas, videos, pictures, and more of what’s happening at the conference.
