Editorial Reviews


“Together is a call from segregation to integration. Fascinating, insightful, and practical. Baxter gives us a wake-up manifesto to all in youth ministry who want to stop segregating teens from adults in the church. Jeff Baxter has done a masterful job of communicating the powerful truth of teens and adults working together to transform the body of Christ. We need to listen, learn, and then start working toward this revolution...Together. Dr. David Olshine, Chair of Youth Ministries -- Dr. David Olshine

Together is a well-structured philosophy of why youth ministry needs to be thinking intergenerationally. As opposed to giving us a new model for ministry, Jeff Baxter goes about the work of helping the reader develop a new mindset for ministry.

With that in mind, Together considers the state of youth ministry and culture as well as a delving into adolescent development. While this information does provide a foundation for the why of intergenerational ministry, it may feel more like wading for the youth worker who is not seminary-trained. Yet, it is here that Baxter tries to help the reader understand barriers to developing an intergenerational mindset.

The last half of Together functions well on its own where Baxter develops the belief that "adolescents need to hear and experience a congruent message from a loving intergenerational body of believers who share the same convictions." He fleshes this out clearly and powerfully in the remaining chapters including the excellent illustration of The Parable of the Yepherd.

Together is not a quick read, but it would be well worth using as a guide for some honest conversations with your leadership team as you seek to develop an effective intergenerational ministry that makes sense in your context.
