Doug translated his passion, insight, and vision for his beloved rookies into what you re now reading, Your Fist Two Years in Youth Ministry hands-down the most comprehensive companion to not only surviving, but also thriving, during the most crucial phase of youth ministry. Employing his renowned wisdom and humor as if you and Doug were chatting over a long, relaxing meal the author disarmingly relates stories and principles from his own successes and failures over 20-plus years in youth ministry. In the end, he offers treasure troves of practical advice, all in the hope that new youth workers can travel a smoother path and achieve real longevity in a church culture that all too often chews them and spits them out.

Ministering to parents and families . Trailblazing change . Working with volunteers . Defining a realistic job description .

What can I still learn? The first two years of youth ministry are never easy. But never fear. Doug fervently assures us: Hang on. Hope s coming
