Melts myths surrounding youth ministry, revitalising a passion for the work. There are seven myths that have grown up in and around ministry to young people and they are dampening the passion that is needed to excel in youth ministry. Not everyone will have been taken in by every myth, but once these myths have been melted it will give youth leaders an opportunity to reappraise their priorities and rethink the way they 'do' youth ministry. Using a combination of biblical truth, real-life example, and comments from a variety of youth leaders themselves, Nigel James identifies each of the seven myths, explains why they can be damaging, and establishes the correct thinking on the specific issue raised. Myths melted are: You can really make a difference in your one hour a week Size isn't important We don't preach, we just sow seeds You have to ask them what they want Young people lack commitment Young people are the future of the church We're not in the entertainment business Not everyone will have been taken in by all the myths, but no-one will be immune. The melting of these myths will lead to a change of mindset and focus towards ministry.;Passionate about youth ministry? You will be after reading this.
