Relationships Unfiltered is especially well designed for volunteer leadership teams with thoughtful discussion questions for each chapter. If you only have time to read through one book with your leadership team this yearthis is the one! - Youth Worker Journal
^^^^^^For half a century, relational or incarnational ministry has been a major focus in youth ministry. But for too long, those relationships have been used as a means to an end - where adults try to influence students to accept, know, trust, believe, or participate in something. While our motives may be good, it's possible that by focusing on these goals, we're not ministering the whole person. When we choose not to engage in the full life of a student, we run the risk of failing them and our ministry.


In this thoughtful and insightful book, Andrew Root challenges us to reconsider our motives and begin to consider simply being with and doing life alongside teenagers with no agenda other than to love them right where they are, by place-sharing. As he shares stories of his (and others') successes and failures in relational youth ministry, you'll find practical ideas to help you recreate the role of relationships in your youth ministry.


^ ^If you're involved in the lives of teenagers, whether as a youth pastor, volunteer youth worker, church leader, or parent, you'll want to read this book and work together to discover the value of place-sharing in the lives of teens. You'll see that it's time to tear down the old structure of relational youth ministry and start again.


^^ It's time to tear down the old structure of relational youth ministry and start again. Explore the idea of place-sharing and find practical ideas to help you recreate the role of relationships in your ministry.


-Publisher

"Relational (or incarnational) ministry has been a part of youth ministry for more than 50 years. It's been a common belief that effective youth ministry required adults to be in deep relationship with students. But what does this actually mean? Too often, the motives for relational ministry are to influence students towards the end results we desire for them. What today's teens really need are adults who are willing to walk with them through life-the good and the bad-with no agenda other than to be with them through it all. This insightful book will help volunteers, parents, and new youth workers examine what is really meant by a relational ministry. They'll gain a deeper understanding of how the incarnation of Jesus leads us into relational youth ministry; seeing how simply "being with" young people has the power to change their lives."
