New author, Timothy Sensabaugh, shares a no holds barred approach to the real challenges a youth minister faces in his book, The Untrained Generation: What’s Wrong with Youth Ministry? ($11.99, paperback, 978-1-62419-954-7; $5.99, eBook, 978-1-62419-955-4). He shares some of his biggest mistakes as a youth pastor and what he does to overcome the conflicts and negative aspects of working with the church youth. This book takes its readers behind the scenes and helps them understand what youth ministry can be instead of a how-to on maintaining the status quo.
“Readers will be encouraged to think differently about how youth ministry can be done within their churches [and] gain a better understanding of the cultural divide between our adult and youth ministries and how they can more effectively bridge those gaps,” states the author. “[This book serves] to equip and encourage ministers to overcome the obstacles [so they can] succeed in youth ministry.”
Timothy Sensabaugh has served in youth ministry for over fifteen years as a youth pastor, evangelist and missionary. His ability to push the boundaries and re-invent youth ministry has allowed him to grow one of the largest youth groups in the United States and has made him one of the most relevant voices in today’s churches. Sensabaugh holds a B.A. in Theology and is a leading expert in the field of youth ministry and modern church development. He has been a featured speaker and made appearances for XXXChurch, 98Rock Tampa, St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Tribune and Teen Mania Ministries.
