Mike Yaconelli composes his thoughts and passions regarding the nine core realities of youth ministry: veracity (youth ministry must expose students to the life-giving truth of Jesus Christ), authenticity (authentic youth workers will draw young people to Jesus Christ), audacity (youth ministry must push students, parents, and the church outside their comfort zones), sanctuary (youth ministry must provide a safe place for students), diversity (youth ministry must challenge young people to embrace diversity), humility (youth ministry should be clothed in humility), intimacy (our relationship with Jesus is our youth ministry), mystery (youth ministry must foster mystery, rediscover astonishment, and leave room for unanswered questions), and creativity (youth ministry must free students and youth workers to discover and express their God-given creativity). As an added resource, each member of the CORE? seminar team, including authors and speakers such as Laurie Polich, Efrem Smith, Marv Penner, Duffy Robbins, contributes sidebars throughout the book responding to Mike's thoughts.

Mike Yaconelli

Mike Yaconelli was the founder of Youth Specialties. He spent 43 years of his life in ministry to youth, and 20 years as a pastor of a small church in Yreka, California (in recent years, Mike called it "the slowest growing church in America"). Mike and his wife, Karla, split their time between Yreka and San Diego. Mike speaks on the Heart of Youth Ministry training video, wrote The Disciple Experiment: A Faith-In-Action Student Journal and dozens of other youth ministry books. Mike was also the author of Dangerous Wonder: The Adventure of Childlike Faith, and Messy Spirituality: God's Annoying Love for Imperfect People, which are both available in book stores or online from Youth Specialties.

Before Mike passed away in October of 2003, he wrote two more books for Youth Specialties: The CORE Realities of Youth Ministry and Devotion. His fingerprints are all over Youth Specialties and this websiteyou can't miss his presence here!
