Using the Remote to Channel Jesus
50 Movie Clips for Ministry
Young people are more connected to technology than most adults in ministry and have a better understanding of what is possible than youth of a generation ago. To reach them, youth ministry leaders must be willing to go where teens are. This resource is designed for adults in ministry who wish to reach young people through film and television in order to engage them in meaningful conversations, activities, or prayer using the remote control as their guide.
Including movies with A-I, A-II, and A-III ratings from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as ratings of G, PG, or PG-13 from the Motion Picture Association of America, Using the Remote to Channel Jesus features 50 suggested five-to-eight-minute clips that help adult leaders to use this medium to interact with youth today. This book features session suggestions on tying clips to conversation-starters, activities, and prayer, and a special index helps you tie the movie clips to themes of your choice. What more can we say but . . .
Enjoy the show!
