Contemplative Youth Ministry



I re-read Contemplative Youth Ministry yesterday as part of a bunch of work I am doing at the moment in the whole arena of Discipleship (a collaborative project through the Department of Mission). I was struck again by what an extraordinary piece of work it is. I can't believe it is nine years old now, it is a vital, compelling and wise book on how to be with God, how to be with yourself, and how to be with young people (and in fact, anyone).

I find myself convinced you should read this if you find yourself in any of the categories below:

1. You are a Youth leader
2. You have a ministry of ANY kind
3. You are a Christian.

I'm going to be at a conference in May where Mark is speaking, very excited about the chance to be in conversation with him.


Wow, it's nine years old. That's crazy to think about. Remember reading advanced copy of that book. Such a good framework for ministry.


I couldn't believe how much time had elapsed either, unreal. It is still the book that frames so much of my work AND encourages/challenges me so much.

Good to have a look at your site Gavin, I really like the logo of the "Christ LIKE" material.
