This booklet is not just for youth workers. When a book on youth work comes out the temptation can be to simply pass it to those who work with young people. However this booklet is for church leaders and youth workers. If a church values the young people in its family and community this is a book for all who shape church to read.
The latest Grove Booklet written by our Director, James Vaughton is now published. You can buy a copy here or if you are involved in youth work or leading a church in Wiltshire click here, fill out the form and we will send you a free copy (for first 20 who email). The booklet is based on his research about how we intentionally shape our churches to more effectively disciple young people.
James spent several months talking to youth workers, young people and parents about the discipleship and considering how a church feels and what a church does that disciples young people well. In a time when the formation of faith in young people is a growing conundrum this booklet offers some incite and practical ideas about what can be done to pass on faith to young people who grow up connected with a church community but may find it hard to connect with God.
