Boyd’s new book Equip ($16.49, paperback, 9781545602492; $8.99, E-book, 9781545602515; $26.49, hardcover, 9781545602508) shares with readers that youth ministry needs leaders who are willing to invest in four “essentials”. The Essential of Self-Development: caring for your personal spiritual fitness to be the person God has in mind; The Essential of Other-Development: recruiting, equipping, and caring for volunteer leadership; The Essential of Managing Well: establishing an operational system that is sustainable, biblical, and enjoyable; The Essential of Gospelizing: filtering and evaluating your ministry through the lens of discipleship and evangelism. Dr. Charles W. Boyd invites readers to evaluate what they do from these four essentials.
