What are some things you've recently read that have been influential to you both personally and from a youth ministry standpoint?

    I'm just about done with "Contemplative Youth Ministry" by Mark Yaconelli. Great book on the importance of presence. Practicing the presence of Jesus and being present in the lives of students. It has really challenged my program oriented mentality and shown me the importance of just BEING with students.

    i just read searching for God knows what. it was one of the best reads i've read in some time. there is much in this book that is applicable to youth ministry and your own walk w/ christ.

    I've been lurking here for a while but I don't think I've left you a comment yet...
    I really like your blog... keep it up!

    Useful reading... Preaching to a Postmodern World by Graham Johnston. It's a bit of an eye-opener in terms of what the current generation of young people seems to be willing to listen to. I found myself identifying some of the "postmodern" frame of thinking that was presented with my own youth ministry involvement - or even just with my friends.

    It's a seriously worthwhile read if we're thinking about good/not-so-good reactions that will likely come up in the minds of our young people as we go about communicating the Gospel.

    There's a review on my blog if you're interested.

    Brian,
    I'm reading Contemplative Youth Ministry as well. I too, have been challenged by it as well as I've been given some hope in that we're on the right path. It seems to me to be a spiritual or theological aspect of Chap Clark's Hurt. While Hurt relies on sociological and psychological observations, Yaconelli's affirms our deeper more fundamental design. Together, both authors have really spoken to my desire to find ways to genuinely be present in the lives of our students.

    Jason,
    I love Donald Miller. I think he articulates so well what many of us have felt deep in our hearts. When I read him I find myself saying, "Yeah, that's what I've tried to express but just didn't know how to get it out there." I think you'll find Anne Lamotte to be very similar.

    Paul,
    thanks for your comment. I read your review. I think we all need to constantly evaluate the vehicle of the message of the gospel to our students. Though the message is eternal, how we communicate it should change as necessary.
