Sustainable Youth Ministry: The Study Guide

Sustainable Youth Ministry: The Study Guide

Created by Abram Kielsmeier-Jones with Mark DeVries, The Sustainable Youth Ministry Study Guide is a companion to Sustainable Youth Ministry, authored by Mark DeVries in 2008. It is a thirteen chapter, downloadable, PDF book.


Each chapter begins with selected texts of Scripture (“Bible Reading”) for the team to engage with together, followed by a “Chapter at a Glance,” the chapter sub-headings from the book.  “The Bottom Line” summarizes the chapter and its key concepts, including a quote from the chapter found to be provocative or deeply significant in some way.

The “Questions for Group Discussion” seek to balance engaging reflection with the challenge to take action on specific implementation steps.  Finally, each chapter contains a “Closing Prayer” section to tie the session together.
