From the Publisher:
The statistics are brutally clear. One thousand teenagers a week are leaving the church. Support among young people is decaying fast. For every church that has a flourishing youth group, there are three more that have none.
Mark Ashton and Phil Moon, both experienced youth leaders, put forward a strategy for youth work which is both radical and biblical:
‘Christian youth work must be different from all other forms of youth work. It must be distinct in its aim, because Christians have a unique view of what it is to be a human being… We want to give Christians a renewed vision for young people, a new confidence in what they can do for them, how they can do it and why they should do it.’
