Community Description

Rewired: Youth Ministry in an Age of IM and MySpace
by Peggy Kendall with Foreword by Duffy Robbins

Binding: Softcover
Size: 5" x 8"

Should youth leaders venture forth into cyberspace to reach today's online teens?

Do you know where your church's teens are hanging out? It may be the mall, or the local Starbucks, but chances are even better that they're hanging out virtual style. Almost two-thirds of American teens use Instant Messenger. MySpace.com has over 55 million members, adding over 85,000 profiles each day. These two technologies have redefined how the typical teenager spends time with friends. And they have important implications for today's youth leader.

Rewired addresses the questions:

  • How do these technologies affect relationships and communication?
  • What are the pros and cons of using this technology in youth ministry?
  • What practical skills are needed to begin integrating communication and social networking technology in ministry?

    The book offers readers:

  • A summary of current research on computer-mediated-communication in reader-friendly terms
  • Real-life insight from teens who use IM and MySpace on a regular basis
  • Feedback and insight from youth pastors who use IM and MySpace in their ministry
  • Specific tips on IM and MySpace use, including getting connected, using the language, and building a profile
  • Value-added, interactive online components that will keep information fresh and current
