Reviews - What do customers think about Ayudenme! Soy Lider de Adolescentes de 12 a 15! (Spanish-Help Im A Junior High Youth Worker)?
This book is a must have! Nov 30, 1999
This book is a must have for anyone involved with junior high ministry. This book is for everyone from junior high youth pastor to junior high volunteer. It has all the information you need to work with junior high youth.
Fluff Nov 30, 1999
These are one-liners that aren't funny or insightful. People who work with teen-agers shouldn't have to listen to someone else tell them what they already know by common sense.
Light cliches Nov 30, 1999
This book is just riding on the coat tails of the one that came before it. It is again a bunch of shallow advice from someone who is trying to make money off of volunteers.
Skeletal Guide to Staying Alive in Junior High Ministry Nov 30, 1999
Let's face it. Junior High Ministry is not always a picnic. But neither is it a war zone (well,at least not always!). There isn't really a whole bunch of resources out there for Junior High workers, but HELP! I'M A JUNIOR HIGH YOUTH WORKER! by Mark Oestreicher is at least a pretty decent quick help guide to the ministry.
Throughout the book, Mark is mainly giving side-line encouragement to keep going and love the kids, throwing a few helpful ideas in here and there. He approaches topics such as developments physically, socially, and spiritually in junior highers, practical teaching tips, and ways to help spur your students to LIVING their faith, not just showing up on Sundays with a dusty Bible.
I found the teaching tips to be helpful. He offers suggestions on game ideas, ways to keep attention, and a list of helpful curriculums that will NOT bore junior highers. Along the way, Mark throws in stories of his own short-comings as a youth minister and also stories from different individuals involved with youth. There are also a bunch of quotes from actual teens about their views on different aspects of being in junior high. At the end, there is a very comprehensive list of other youth ministry resources from videos to books.
While a VERY quick read (took me in all less than an hour to breeze through), Mark does give some helpful advice and encouragement to get back into the trenches and love the students I work with. Recommended.
waste of time Nov 30, 1999
I have no idea why this book got published. There are just a few words on any page and the advice is shallow and obvious. I bought copies for my youth group volunteers and every single one of them said they didn't get anything out of it. Just use the one from Doug Fields, which is virtually the same thing.
