emerging youth ministry recommended resources

These are not listed in any particular order. I hope you may find some of these resources beneficial in the ever-changing climate of contextual youth ministry.

I have benefitted from these organizations, curriculum, and networks both in New York and now in an international setting in France.

  1. Hey Dan! Have you read Fred Edie’s book “Book, Bath, Table, Time?” It is a sort of theological and practical exploration of youth ministry at the program I work with here at Duke. I don’t mean to write in self-promotion, but I think that Fred’s interest and attention to ancient Church practices, social location and awareness, embodiment and the arts, and the ordering of our lives as a worship may appeal to your youth ministry sensibilities. I would really be interested in your thoughts on it. peace, Alaina
