Publishers Description Deep Ministry in a Shallow World will show you a new way to prayerfully reflect on the questions you face in your youth ministry every day so you can find the answers that will take it to deeper places. That s because authors Chap Clark and Kara Powell have gathered significant research findings that will help shift your ministry paradigm. Did you know that: * the typical strategies we use to build relationships with kids might actually cause them to trust us less because of what this generation has endured? * recent research on communication could help us move past the witty talks and funny stories we work so hard to develop and instead actually connect the Bible to kids lives? * studies show that offering students just Jesus and not helping them at home, school, and in their neighborhoods might not help them very much at all? The authors research also led to their development of the Deep Design problem-solving process---a revolutionary model that will give you better tools than ever before to address every last issue you ll encounter in youth ministry."

Reviews - What do customers think about Deep Ministry In A Shallow World?
Awesome! Must read! Mar 2, 2007
Okay, I have to say that after the first couple of chapters I wasn't overly impressed. But once they started to apply the principle to each of the cases in subsequent chapters, it blew me away. I would say this is a MUST READ for those in youth ministry today, if you want to have a Deep Impact in the midst of most ministry examples out there that don't get past the shallow stage.
