Youth Ministry on the Front Foot is a welcome addition to Youthworks’ Front Foot series. Here is a resource that I wish I’d had as a youth leader, with pithy chapters on a range of issues that confront everyone involved in youth ministry. All the chapters are written by trusted practitioners whose experience and theological acumen provide much food for thought, with principles to adopt and pitfalls to avoid. I commend this volume wholeheartedly.

I don’t take youth ministry books lightly simply because I don’t take youth ministry lightly. Building and reaching the youth of today is a herculean task that needs the clear thinking and wisdom that can only come through God’s word. This book is full of God-honouring, helpful and practical teaching for anyone serious about youth ministry. Strongly recommended.
- Ken Moser, Professor of Youth Ministry, Briercrest College and Seminary, Canada
This is a labour of love; love for Jesus and love for youth. It is an excellent resource, full of applied biblical wisdom, to stimulate and equip those who share these loves and a desire to be more effective in their own context of helping young people to know and grow in their relationship with the Lord.
