Urban youth workers don’t have a lot of resources to call their own. Not too many specialized tools. Barely a survival guide in sight.
Which is why this book was created. Help! I’m an Urban Youth Worker! is an information-rich oasis for those who’re reaching kids where the streets are alive. Where the sights, sounds, and stimuli are plentiful. Where the action is.
Inside you’ll get valuable tips on--
* Starting your own urban youth ministry--even if resources are few
* Helping your ministry thrive alongside the influences and dangers of the streets
* Grappling with the greater intensity of challenges city kids face (poverty, violence, pregnancy and STDs, crumbling schools, low self-esteem, lack of male role models, limited futures)
* Seeing beyond colors, nationalities, and behaviors . . . until you see Jesus in every one of your kids--and much, much more!
Help! I’m an Urban Youth Worker! is an invaluable resource for volunteer and paid leaders, Sunday school teachers, seminary students, pastors, recreation directors--all adults who work with kids in urban environments.

If Ginger Sinsabaugh can survive urban youth ministry, anyone can. Not letting her lack of rhythm or small town roots stop her, Ginger got involved in urban ministry in the early eighties when she moved to Chicago for a job in advertising. Though writing jingles paid the rent, Ginger knew that there was more to life than Snap! Crackle! Pop! So in 1996, she cut back her advertising hours to devote more time to urban ministry and create ministry materials with an "urban flavor". Currently, Ginger works with SLAM! (saving lives in athletic ministry), which works hand in hand with Moody Bible Institute to reach teens in Chicago’s Cabrini Green Project as well as other high risk neighborhoods. Ginger and her husband, Jeff, live near Chicago’s Wrigley Field, where they enjoy discovering new forms of candy.
