Youth eMinistry 3.0


A Manifesto of Where We’ve Been, Where We Are,
and Where We Need to Go | Mark Oestreicher
Over the past several decades there have been three
significant shifts in youth culture; each new shift
brought with it different values and priorities in the lives
of teens. Youth ministries adapted and responded to the
first two shifts, but we’re missing the boat on the third.
The result? Youth ministry isn’t addressing the realities
and needs of today’s youth culture. After nearly three
decades in youth ministry, Mark Oestreicher has lived
through a lot of those shifts himself. In recent years,
he’s found himself wondering what needs to change,
especially since so much of what we’re doing in youth
ministry today isn’t working.
In Youth Ministry 3.0, you’ll explore, along with Marko
and the voices of other youth workers, why we need
change in youth ministry. You’ll get a quick history of
youth ministry over the last 50 years. And you’ll help Join the conversation in

Middle School Ministry


A Comprehensive Guide to Working with Early Adolescents
Mark Oestreicher & Scott Rubin
You are one of the few, the proud, the brave middle school
youth workers, which means that you are a person that some
might consider a little nuts while others look at you in awe. But
no matter what anyone else thinks, you know that being in the
E<N
trenches with middle school students requires a unique set of
skills and knowledge.
Middle School Ministry is the only comprehensive guide to
?FK
ministry with young teens. In these pages you’ll find everything
you need to understand and effectively minister to middle
school students, including:
Lg[Xk\[
• The role and importance of middle school ministry
• Early adolescent development 9\jkJ\cc\
• Research on early adolescent social structures and cultural studies
• Practical ministry ideas for everything from teaching to programming to working with parents
You’ll also be able to access the wisdom of veteran middle school pastors, Mark Oestreicher and Scott
Rubin in a Q&A section and “101 Random Ideas” where Marko and Scott offer random, funny, and
creative ideas for everything from games to room decorating to travel.
If you find yourself in a room full of energetic, unpredictable middle school students, Middle School
Ministry will help you feel prepared and equipped to meet them where they are and lead them towards a
life with Jesus.

A Tale of Two Youth Workers


A Youth Ministry Fable | Eric Venable
Wes is young, enthusiastic, and perhaps a little idealistic about
his new position as the youth pastor of the largest church in his
denomination. Running into the ministry at full-steam with the best
of plans and intentions, Wes soon learns that all the idealism and
plans can’t prepare him for the struggles he’s facing.
When Doug, the star quarterback, stops coming to youth group,
Wes is faced with questions and frustration from the parents and
church leaders. When he tries to win Doug back, Wes becomes
even more confused when he learns that Doug began attending the
youth group at the smaller church in town.
Britt is a seasoned youth worker who has been at the smaller E<N
church in town for too many years to count. Doug ends up at Britt’s
youth group, and soon after, Wes comes to Britt for insight. Only
months before, Wes thought little of Britt because of his small youth
group, but now he comes to Britt for help.
?FK
In this creative fable, you’ll be invited into the ongoing
conversations between Wes and Britt as they explore what it takes Lg[Xk\[
to have an effective youth ministry. You’ll watch as they discover
what it takes for students to have a long-term, transformative faith.
As Wes changes the way he does ministry, you might find yourself 9\jkJ\cc\i
with a new perspective as well.

The (un) Official Church Staff Manual


Youth Pastor Edition | Mark Riddle
Whether they are pushed out the door or they run from the church
building screaming, youth pastors are (unfortunately) notorious
for having short-lived stays in their ministry positions. It’s often
a result of misunderstandings or miscommunications, but it’s an
epidemic that can be avoided, however, if youth pastors know
the guidelines for success in the most challenging and exciting
position in the church.
Armed with years of youth ministry experience and the spiritual
gift of sarcasm, Mark Riddle has created The (un) Official Church
Staff Manual: Youth Pastor Edition. As Mark shares a few of
his own successes and mistakes, you’ll find some of the most
important lessons you’ll learn as a youth pastor, including:
• How to brown-nose your senior pastor
E<N
• How to talk an eighth-grade girl down from a sugar high
• How to listen ?FK
• How to survive a surprise parent meeting
• How to promote a rock concert
• How to make friends in a new city Lg[Xk\[
Make sure you’ve got the tools to get the job done right in youth
ministry. This book offers life lessons that will guide you through
the most serious and the silliest parts of being a youth pastor.
