'We have something prophetic, practical and powerful to say to young people,' explains Martin Saunders. 'We need to tell them that they are valuable and valued, both by us, and infinitely more by the real and living God. God loves young people; the world often rejects them. Which side of that equation do you think we should be on?'
Are you eager to see children and young people in your church once again? Martin explains how and where to start. He outlines how to recruit and train volunteers, and what you should do during your first term; how you encourage young people to lead; how you build for the long-term – and what to do when you run out of steam! He also encourages youth leaders to adopt strong spiritual disciplines, and solicit prayer support. Whether you are starting from scratch, or seeking to breathe fresh life into a struggling ministry, Martin’s combination of hands-on experience and thoughtful reflection will prove both practical and visionary.
