Review: Youth Ministry Ideas And Ministry Tips Ebook

January 11th, 2010


By Tim Schmoyer I've been working on an e-book project for a while now and I'm excited to finally release it to the online youth ministry community. My free e-book, 130 Youth Ministry Tips and Ideas, is based on the past two years of blogging here at “Life In Student Ministry.”

Who this e-book is for?
This e-book was written for the small church, youth leader who volunteers his or her time, has a huge heart for students, but has very little training and even feels a little lost in this whole youth ministry thing. It's
also for the new, youth pastor who is just starting out in his or her first, youth ministry position and needs some pointers to help get started and tips to avoid common mistakes. However, that said, there
are still plenty of ideas here that will benefit even the veteran, youth worker.


The inspiration for this e-book
My grandmother-in-law follows much of what I write concerning youth ministry at “Life In Student Ministry” and is always eager to pass it along to her church’s youth ministry volunteer team. Several times she
asked me to pull all of my content together in a book and sell it. Although I will never sell the e-book as I am a strong supporter of the open source community, I finally heeded her advice and attempted
to compile many of the youth ministry tips and ideas from “Life In Student Ministry” into one place. Youth Specialties also has a list of tips for youth workers that inspired some of these ideas.

This e-book is completely free and will always be distributed free of charge. Please download it and pass it around to your heart's content.
