IN PRISM'S BOOK BAG: Efrem Smith's RAISING UP YOUNG HEROES – Tips for developing a revolutionary youth ministry (InterVarsity Press)

You already know that youth ministry is about much more than Sunday night Bible study and lock-ins. It's about changing the lives of youth and empowering young heroes to change their world. In this book Efrem Smith provides you with a model for holistic ministry that addresses all the needs of youth – body, soul and spirit.

 

Powerful stories from Smith's urban multiethnic context shape the content of RAISING UP YOUNG HEROES. He shows how the fashion, music and lifestyle of the hip-hop culture are permeating youth culture and how you can enter that culture to help your youth meet Jesus.

 

But the principles that are the foundation of RAISING UP YOUNG HEROES are designed to serve the whole body of Christ. So whatever your own youth group context, you can benefit from the Smith's rich storehouse of experience and his huge heart for today's youth.
