Reviews - What do customers think about Children's Ministry In The 21st Century?
This is a worthy investment Jul 15, 2008
I have used ideas from this book with my Sunday School classes. Some are extremely well thought out; for example OUR WIRED GENERATION. This is about using the technology of today to MEET our children on their turf.
One of the BEST! Mar 13, 2008
This is one of the most practical resources I own! Each chapter is relavant to children's ministry right now. Each chapter has a list of easy to use, ministry-tested ideas that you can read and implement today. This entire series by Group Publishing is a must have for staff/volunteers involved in church ministry in the 21st century.

Truly Spectacular! Oct 9, 2007
This book does an amazing job at helping us to see, beyond the obvious, how kids are growing up differently, now more than ever before; and how the church needs to be prepared to meet them where they are at, or even where they will be - or risk becoming "irrelevant" in our rapidly changing world. Then, you are given fun, practical ideas of how to put these new concepts into practice. Every person who works with kids should read this book!!!
Not just another book of theory - This book delivers the goods! Sep 2, 2007
Children's Ministry in the 21st Century is a refreshing approach to the basics of Children's Ministry for today. I've read a mountain of books that theorize and pontificate on the subject, but Craig Jutila's book delivers more than just theory. This book delivers the goods. He explains the latest trends in Childrens' Ministry then at the end of each chapter, he gives you good concrete suggestions for activities that you can implement to bring your church's children's ministry into the 21st century. Whether you have a small church or a mega church or you work with babies or preteens, you can find many activities and suggestions for your classroom, small group Bible Study, or church wide event in this easy to read and reference resource.
