From the church that brought you Purpose Driven Life and Purpose Driven Church is this book that gives you a plan to build a healthy youth ministry. There are nine components to the Purpose Driven Youth ministry model: perseverance, participating leaders, parents, planned values, process, programs, potential audience, purpose, and the power of God. This model for ministry is not based on one great youth leader and is not destroyed if that leader leaves the church.
Doug Fields has been in youth ministry for more than two decades and has been the Pastor to Students at Saddleback Church in Southern California since 1992. He is the author of over 30 books and holds an M.Div. From Fuller Theological Seminary.
