Editorial Reviews

YouthWorker Journal, May/June, 2005

Though specifically written for those working in the Catholic Church, this book provides ideas and principles that apply in all churches, East shares the result of research within the Catholic Church, but principles like "It takes a willing parish to build an effective youth ministry" and "Relationship building is essential to effective youth ministry" make it a great read for all youth workers. Quotes from students augment the findings, but the heart that motivates this resource helps bring clarity and makes the book feel easy to apply. Buy it and give it to your board members; it's very well done.
