"This book is for any youth worker who is discontented with the way the church is treating its teens. If churches have a desire to radically change the way their youth groups are run, then reading this book will point them in the right direction. It focuses on creative ways to study Scripture, new ways to do community and church service, and contemporary ways to enjoy fellowship. Teens are ready; it is up to the church to raise the bar."

Raising the Bar/Alvin L. Reid "We know how to be teenagers. We want [the church] to show us how to be adults." -Kristin, aged 17 Two-thirds of today's teens are interested in having a meaningful relationship with God, yet less than one-third of them are active in a local church. Alvin Reid-an experienced pastor, professor, evangelist, and youth ministry speaker--suggests these statistics are more an indictment of the way the church does youth ministry than of the teens they try to reach. Today's generation of teens is marked by teamwork, authenticity, and a "can-do" attitude. They are much more than kids finishing childhood-an erroneous perspective of many in the church, and one that drives what often passes for effective youth ministry. Teens are young adults with incredible potential who need to learn how to be Christian adults. This compelling book provides an impassioned plea for the church to set a higher standard; to reinvent the fundamental ways we minister to teens and their families. "[This book] is not for the faint of heart or those who are intimidated by this culture. It is written for those who are deadly serious about reaching and keeping this Digital generation. . . an unreached people group, 'a tribe apart' with their own language, values, customs and dress." -Jay Strack President, StudentLeadership.net Alvin L. Reid (Ph.D., M.Div., Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) is professor of evangelism and the Bailey Smith Chair of Evangelism at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of seven books, including Radically Unchurched, Introduction to Evangelism, and Light the Fire: Raising a Generation to Live Radically for Jesus. Ministry Resource / Youth Ministry
