As the world's youth population continues to grow and interact globally, youth ministry is developing in equal fashion. Local fellowship and growth is mingled with international blogging, texting, and electronic socializing. Global youth ministry presents enormous opportunities, but it also requires careful leadership education and preparation. Seeking to write a definitive yet succinct textbook on the challenges and requirements of international ministry, authors Terry Linhart and Dave Livermore invited twenty-three prominent youth ministry leaders from around the world to contribute chapters. The overarching purpose was to focus on essential topics, and to inform readers on the various theological, theoretical, sociocultural, and historical issues that shape international youth ministry. Global Youth Ministry uses diverse voices from mainline, evangelical, and Catholic ministries to bridge international and denominational divisions and ensure there's no agenda from a particular theological or political niche. The result is a useful and versatile text that both challenges and educates ministry students with a heart for missions and a spiritual empathy for youth around the world.
