Thriving in Youth Ministry

By Robert J. McCarty



Since the first printing of Survival in Youth Ministry in 1994, Catholic youth ministry as a profession has moved from surviving to thriving! In the second edition of Bob McCarty's popular book, now titled Thriving in Youth Ministry, McCarty candidly exposes the sources of tension, conflict, and frustration that youth ministers encounter in their work.

Thriving in Youth Ministry explores problematic characteristics and conditions of youth ministry and offers strategies and practices that McCarty, and others, use not only to survive youth ministry but to enhance it. This book is a must-have for those in the field who are looking to maintain the enthusiasm, excitement, energy, and sense of call to the work of youth ministry.

Religion Teacher's Journal, September, 2005

Youth ministers will find in this workbook a practical approach to the personal and professional issue they face in carrying out their ministry. The reading and reflection materials are excellent and provide strategies and practices invaluable for any youth minister, especially those just beginning or who want a "refresher." An ideal resource.
