Gospel Centred Youth Work and Ministry: A Missional Approach to Working with Young People




'Gospel Centred Youth Work and Ministry: A Missional Approach to Working with Young People', is the working title for a book which I am currently writing.

What's it about?

Many approaches to Christian youth work and ministry sell out to the philosophies of relativism and relevance. This book calls for youth work aims, values and methods that are rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Contents

Chapter One
What’s the Point? Prioritising the primary purpose of Christian youth work and ministry
Chapter Two
Mixed Messages: What is the gospel anyway?
Chapter Three
Regeneration for a New Generation: What is conversion?
Chapter Four
The Heart of Worship: Cultural Expression or Christ Exaltation?
Chapter Five
Need for Creed: Confessional Christian Youth Work and Ministry
Chapter Six
The Making of a Missionary: Essential Qualifications and Characteristics of Christian youth work and ministry
Chapter Seven
Conclusion: Gospel Centred Youth Work and Ministry

 Evangelical Press have expressed some interest in my book proposal. Since the work is not yet complete, it is only a provisional arrangement at this point, but they do seem genuinely interested.*

While there is nothing official at this stage, EP have agreed to review the manuscript on a chapter by chapter basis (as I write each one), upon completion they will consider the manuscript as a whole. I have agreed to this proposal, so my current focus is on completing the manuscript rather than pursuing publishers with an initial proposal.

I am really encouraged by the response from EP. I also like the fact (from what I understand) that they are a non-profit publishing house who use their funds to support the work of mission. I also really like the fact that they are committed to publishing gospel centred resources.

* The manuscript is now complete and is at present being reviewed by Evangelical Press
