From the Back Cover

Today's students long for a rich, meaningful faith. They want something more than a moral code and therapeutic worship that leaves them unsatisfied and uninspired. Speaker, author, and evangelism professor Alvin L. Reid reveals a key to capturing students' hearts for life: a missional youth ministry. Through practical teaching and powerful application tools, discover how giving teens a grander purpose and vision and encouraging them to see all of life as a mission field transforms their faith, their lives, and the world.

Alvin Reid, professor of evangelism and student ministry at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, is "tired of meeting young adults who tell (him) that what they remember from their youth group experience is 'invite a friend' and 'Don't have sex.'" He wants students to begin living their lives enamored with the risen Christ as ministers of his Gospel of grace and love. He wants to see young people living their Christian lives in a distinctly Christian way, as missionaries and ministers of reconciliation.

Me too! Reid offers a lot of practical wisdom for leaders and parents. He says we have spent so much time on the imperatives(the "do's", commands, law) and lost sight of the indicatives(the "Christ has done", Gospel). This leads to what Christian Smith coined Moralistic Therapeutic Deism and it fills youth rooms and pulpits all over the country, if not the world. The idea that God, an impersonal force more than a relational being, is here to make me feel better as long as I act good is as pervasive as it is perverse. Reid's advice, ditch this and focus on the Gospel.

Focus on the Gospel in its grandest presentation. The typical Roman Road Gospel presentation drops the hearer in the middle of the story, assuming that Romans 1-3 is known and understood as we kick off at Romans 3:23. Reid's point is to see the Gospel from beginning to end, the good news of God from creation to consumation and restoration. He encourages the reader to teach students the "metanarrative" of Scripture, the big story. And see that the Gospel is not the "door to Christianity" that one enters and leaves behind, but rather it is the focus of all of Christianity. Allow the student to see who God is and what He is doing and let these truths be applied to them by the Holy Spirit.

Youth pastors, workers, and volunteers today do not need to be told that current methods of youth ministry are not working. With the number of youth on the rise the amount of teens today professing to be Christian has remained the same. The church as a whole is baptizing fewer youth today than in the 1970's, while for the first time in history over 50% of the worlds population are youth.

With timeless wisdom and insight, Dr. Reid writes to the current state of youth ministry. Instead of just diagnosing the problem, he also gives a solution..creating a missionary culture in our ministries and infusing a missionary mindset into the lives of students. Our end goal is a ministry focused on creating a culture in ministry that inspires our students to see life as mission.

This book is one of the best books I've read in seminary. I would definitely recommend reading it to anyone who has a desire to see their ministry flourish. The gospel centered approach that this book takes is extremely refreshing. It has really serve to stir my affections for God and I cannot wait to put some of these things in the practice!

This is by far the best book on student ministry I've read. Reid does an excellent job of dismantling the era of entertainment youth groups and lays out an excellent battle plan for cultivating disciples of Jesus in students. If you work with students at all, grab this book.

Dr. Alvin Reid's book As You Go is an excellent book. If you work with students, this book is a must read. I am requiring my leaders to read it and am encouraging the parents of my students to read it as well.
