INVOLVE YOUTH energizes young people for service.Rather than merely entertain or bore into deadness, INVOLVE YOUTH seeks
to do what the name itself proclaims – to “involve” young people.Service is the highest form of
involvement for a follower of Jesus Christ.
Basic youth ministry—that's what you'll find in this spiral-bound publication. If you're starting a youth ministry or wanting to revive it, this will provide you with the basic building blocks. If you're wanting to provide training for youth leaders, draw on these six chapters as presentations.
With a foundation of relationships, you'll also find out how to make your programs count so that you reach the target. You do have a target, don't you? If not, this will help you identify a worthwhile target for youth ministry. You'll also develop basic skills like understanding the dynamics of working with people as individuals as well as with groups, plus the critical ability to lead discussions. This useful youth ministry tool also includes 10 relational Bible studies.
Many people feel frustrated and powerless to do anything about the many young people who seem to be leaving the church. Some wring their hands, others make guesses at the number leaving, and still others study it and study it. Mission Lifeguard take a pro-active approach by reaching out to missing young people. The metaphor of a lifeguard recuing those drowning captures the seriousness of the problem as well as the actions needed.
This 94-page manual spells out in 10 chapters how individuals and churches can move into action with prayer, persistence, and Holy Spirit power to reach out to those who are missing. Find out about "Spotters" and "Lifeguards" and learn a new form of CPR (C=Connect; P=Praise; R=Release).

A role-playing game to develop and clarify values. The game goes in three stages:
1. Who? Role the colored dice to discover the role you will play, such as young adult female, unpopular teen, athlete, a mother, brother. senior citizen, etc.
2. Where? Role the two dice and add the numbers to identify the setting where you will role-play. The numbers with their corresponding descriptions can be found on the side of the box. These include at a concert, in a restaurant, stuck in an elevator, at a varsity game, in a church lobby, etc.
3. What? Pick one of the Challenge Cards or one of the Christian Challenge Cards and read the topic of your discussion. Each topic pits the two participants on opposite sides of an issue. By role-playing, the participants aren't making these arguments or statements personnally, but simply through the lengs of the role they are playing. Or is it that simple?
Play the game with two people in front of others, or divide everyone into 2somes and have everyone role-play the same situation simultaneously.
