Even if you know you're called to youth ministry and are passionate about the students in your group, you've probably had a few of those moments when you've wondered why you're doing certain things in your ministry, or wondered why you're even doing youth ministry in the first place. If you've ever stopped to ask, 'What's the point of youth ministry?' ... In Taking Theology to Youth Ministry, Andrew Root invites you along on a journey with Nadia---a fictional youth worker who is trying to understand the 'why' behind her ministry. Her narrative, along with Root's insights, help you uncover the action of God as it pertains to your own youth ministry, and encourage you to discover how you can participate in that action. As you join this theological journey, you'll find yourself exploring how theology can and should influence the way you do youth ministry.
Andrew Root (Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary) is assistant professor of youth and family ministry at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. A former Young Life staffworker, he has served in churches and social service agencies as a youth outreach associate and a gang prevention counselor. He is the author of Revisiting Relational Youth Ministry: From a Strategic Influence to a Theology of Incarnation and Relationships Unfiltered: Help for Youth Workers, Volunteers, and Parents on Creating Authentic Relationships.
