Junior High Ministry (Expanded)
Rowdy, restless, silly, out of control, moody, vulgar, disrespectful, unpredictable — this may be the junior high stereotype, writes youth ministry expert Wayne Rice. But early adolescents’ enthusiasm, loyalty, energy, candidness, and willingness to learn — these more than compensate for the well-publicized hazards of working with middle schoolers. In this edition of Junior High Ministry — updated and expanded to reflect the realities of middle school ministry at the turn of the century — the cofounder of Youth Specialties takes a comprehensive look at the early adolescent experience: – A case for junior high ministry — and what it takes to work effectively with junior highers. – New material of turn-of-the-century trends in the youth culture — and on programming for kids living in this culture. – A chapter each on the five pivotal areas of development — physical, social, intellectual, psycho-emotional, and faith — among junior highers. – Altogether new chapters on parental involvement and mentoring in the context of junior high ministry . . . all topped off with 50 creative and practical ideas — fun and games, Bible study openers, mixers, entire events — that are tailored for junior highers in Sunday school, the youth room, or your living room. Whether you’re training for youth work or a trainer of youth workers, Junior High Ministry will keep finding its dog-eared way to the top of your most used resources.

God I Never Knew$16.00Add to cart
Who is the Holy Spirit, and exactly what does He do?
Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confounding-even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godhead-the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort-the source of such confusion?
In The God I Never Knew, Robert Morris clearly explains that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship–to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. This insightful and biblically-based book moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition, and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life:
* Dwell within you
* Be your helper
* Guide you into all truth
* Comfort you
* Pray for you
* Show you things to come
* Never leave you
It’s time to experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh, new way-to meet the God you may have never known.
Includes a small group study guide!
