Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A youth ministry classic beefs up to provide powerful help to today's youth workers. Incorporating the latest statistics, new material, and added chapters on involving parents and developing a junior high mentorship program, Junior High Youth Ministry is a detailed, highly informed and highly informative guidebook for youth workers. Relaxed, non-academic, and practical, it covers thoroughly every aspect of ministry to early adolescents. Wayne Rice sheds light on the physical, social , intellectual, psycho-emotional, and spiritual development of young people ages 11-14. And he turns theory into fun, creative, practical ways to get early teens excited about their faith. With all this plus insights into the traits of a youth worker, 50 creative ideas for junior high groups, and an index of additional resources, this updated and expanded Junior High Youth Ministry is ready to lead the way toward effective turn-of-the-century ministry.

Wayne Rice encompasses many perspectives and areas of junior high ministry. The physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and faith areas of development within a junior higher were discussed for a more complete understanding of their changing world. It was very informative and the book made some exceedingly good points that should be remembered when working with this age group.
It is a quick and easy read and very informative with the basics needed. I believe that if you want to get a quick grasp with some in depth insights on junior high ministry this would be an excellent choice.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book and will be a great resource for ANY leader/volunteer in the middle school/jr. high ministry!!! I highly recommend it. I also want to through out there that if you are the parent of a child this age this book is a must. Great tips on connecting to this age group whether you are leading in a church or guiding your pre-teen child. It will normalize "them" and reminded me how certain behaviors are stages/phases and hey are not just immature kids - they are going through a lot and desperately need loving, mature, adults who get them, not by just saying it but by living it.
