Roland Martinson on What Really Works in Youth Ministry

Contrary to past assumptions about youth ministry that assumed a charismatic "pied piper" was needed to galvanize a youth ministry, Roland Martinson notes that a network of adult leaders who can provide concurrent age level youth ministry and intergenerational youth ministry is needed; theology - not just technique - is critical; and the first steps to effective youth ministry is to help a congregation's pastor "understand how God is at work in the first third of life and how ministry in the first third of life is deeply theological."
