“With over 30 years of paid youth ministry working in churches, Bible colleges and in national/regional denominational roles, I have had the opportunity to talk with numerous youth pastors and witness countless youth ministries. Through this I have developed ways of assessing a youth ministry and developing strategies toward health and sustainability.
