It’s finally here! Sorry for the delay in writing, but this book project (as great as it is) has been more time-consuming than I thought.
Anyways, here is the introduction to the God is Loud book project from Chris Folmsbee and I.
This is a rough draft. Unpolished and unfinished…intentionally. The final editing has yet to be done.
Here is my hope and dream for this project. Every two weeks, I will post a new addition/chapter on this blog.
This is where you come in.
I would love to get feedback, input, thoughts, stories, links, etc….
Much of what you post will be used in the book itself in some way, shape, or form.
Some ideas will help shape our thinking and the overall direction.
Some might be used within the actual body of the text or perhaps as a sidebar, end note, or as a part of the student journal.
Already a few like-minded youth pastors from around the world have sent some wonderful writings to help compliment Chris and I.
Remember, this book is for our students, so we want to include content and ideas that can hopefully represent a wide variety of students, churches, and contexts.
If you hate what we have to say, feel free to comment as well, but they will probably not be posted.
This particular book is not for youth leader development as such (in that situation critiques and opposite opinions can be very beneficial)
Rather, as stated before, our hope is for students to grasp the mission of God and their role in partnering with God that will lead to deepened spiritual formation.
So, please help spread the word to youth leaders so we can gain more insight and help make this book as helpful and inspirational to students as possible.
Thanks for journeying with us in this process. We are excited to see what’s in store for the future, not only for this book, but for this network and friendship of youth leaders.
