Top 10: "Books for Middle Years Ministry Youth Workers”

People ask me all the time, if I have read any good books lately or what I am I reading.

I physically sit down a read, but I also have books that I listen to, as I drive places.

I try to change it up so some are youth ministry, leaders, or even a classic.

The one kind of book that continues to be hard to find is a lot of middle years specific books.   Here are few ministry, parenting and education books that I have found helpful as I work with students in the “middle years”

9. A Faith of Their Own: Understanding the Common Cry of Preteens- Folmsbee 


8. Inter-Generational Youth Ministry- Walker
