Rebuilding Youth Ministry: Ten Practical Strategies for Catholic Parishes

  • Description: "Christopher Wesley, director of student ministry at Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland--the Catholic parish at the center of the bestselling book Rebuilt--has doubled teen participation in his programs and tripled the number of adult volunteers who work with youth. In Rebuilding Youth Ministry, Wesley presents ten indispensable strategies for creating successful youth programs where teens feel connected, stay involved, and grow in faith. In Rebuilding Youth Ministry, Christopher Wesley coaches fellow Catholic leaders how to overcome common hurdles of ministering to young people. Wesley shares how he faced feelings of complacency, underestimated youth, and entertained rather than ministered in his own parish. Wesley built a distinctive program based on small group faith formation and sustained with the assistance of more than sixty volunteer adult mentors."
