I just finished reading Stephen Ingram’s upcoming book, Organic Student Ministry. If you’re looking for a more contextual and localized approach to youth ministry, you’ve got to read this book. It’s as if Stephen is sitting down with you to help assess your ministry and make appropriate recommendations for real revitalization and growth.
Here’s my “official” endorsement:
Forget the growth hormones! Stephen Ingram calls everyone who cares for young people to get our hands dirty in the organic soil of student ministry. Drawing on years of experience in ministry and consulting, Stephen will help you assess the particularities of your ministry context and determine what to plant and what to prune in order to promote long-term growth and sustainability. This book is required reading for anyone seeking fresh visions for youth ministry.
