Helpful Tool May 9, 2004
A great supplement to the book by the same author. If you're leading a group of youth leaders through this material, why not have each person buy a copy and everyone be on the same page? It just makes life easier and is a great resource for later reference.
Very helpful Oct 22, 2002
This product helped me better understand the book. Along with the video, this put flesh on the book. If you read this without the video or the book, it won't make sense. Don't buy this alone! It goes with a video. I love Doug Fields' stuff. It's always practical and helpful.
SOMETHING MISSING! Aug 29, 2002
I was very eager to get started reading the book, I was so lost when I opened this book, the directions of the book, and the areas that had to be filled in didnot make since to me. I also didn't understand the pages that had the word video written on them. Was I to look at a video tape to answer some of the questions?
A Great Training Resource May 29, 2001
I have used this training guide in my ministry and I am here to say that it really works. The training kit comes with an interactive video featuring Doug Fields. It is a great discussion starter for your youth team. The book guides the participants through the different concepts of a PDYM. The questions for discussion help to lead your minstry team to discover why they do the things they do in minstry. It lays out the proinciples of PDYM clearly and concisly. I recommend this kit to anyone who wants to train a youth leadership team in the church in the best way they can. The kit is just one step down from having Doug Fields come and explain the model in person. No youth pastor should be without it!
Youth Ministry with Purpose! Apr 16, 2001
If you are ministering to youth, this resource will be excellent - that is if you want to see your youths grow in the Lord. Doug Field's does an excellent job in sharing his own proven strategy in doing the youth ministry. This resource will help you to get a sound foundation in doing youth ministry. You'll learn to... 1) connect with the power of God for passionate, 2) committed leaders, 3) define the purpose of your ministry conmmunicate it effectively, 4)identify your potential audience, 5) Implement processes that reach your audience and fulfill God's purpose and more. This resource will help you develop a ministry that equips students rather than a ministry that coordinates events. Even if you don't use all the principles Doug Teaches in this series, you'll find enough in here to keep you excited and passionate for God's people for a long time. I say, "Check out the product and go make a difference for Jesus!"
