Anyone who serves teenagers today knows that more and more young people are eager to make a difference in the world. When students participate in short-term missions, service, and justice causes, parents and youth leaders hope these experiences will lead to real transformation. But research shows that our efforts don’t always stick.

If we truly want short-term work to translate into long-term change, leaders and students must spend more time before, during, and after service projects preparing for and processing their experiences. The sessions in this leader’s guide will help you create experiences that stick—both for the students you take and the communities you serve. This guidebook offers a host of practical and field-tested exercises for each phase of your experience, whether it’s a half-day local service project or a two-week trip overseas.

Participants will engage in hands-on experiences to gain new insights about themselves, their relationship with God, their teammates, and the world we’re called to love and serve. Each of these steps is a catalyst in helping students apply what they have learned in the field to their own lives back at home. Also included are ideas to help get parents and the whole church engaged in service together. A companion student journal is also available to boost the potential for personal application throughout the journey.

Review:

"I find that missions are consistently the best and the worst programs we offer in youth ministry. The potential for transformation and Kingdom impact is palpably real; but the hidden curriculums of self-actualization, pity and judgment, and tourism too often turn what could be beautiful and good into a narcissistic mush. How wonderful to have a research-based guide to avoiding the worst of what short-term missions can be, and leaning into the best."  --Mark Oestreicher, Partner, the Youth Cartel

"Short-term trips have massive potential to make long-term impact, especially when combined with thoughtful planning and preparation. Sticky Faith Service Guide offers the most practical and thorough advice on equipping teams for effective service that I've ever seen. Team leaders and participants, you don't want to miss out on the many ways that this outstanding book can help make your next trip a life-changing experience." --Peter Greer, president & CEO of HOPE International and coauthor of Mission Drift

"Sticky Faith Service Guide creates an engaging, accessible guide to maximize the transformative impact of short-term mission trips. Based on years of experience coaching youth leaders, solid theology, cross-cultural sensitivity, and rich insights into spiritual formation--this resource will deliver for groups what it promises: short-term service trips being translated into long-term change. I warmly recommend this resource as a ready-made guide for leaders and youth to make the most for the kingdom of their short term service." --Tim Dearborn, author, Short Term Missions Workbook

"What an incredible resource for churches and families. This book affirms and guides the influence of the families and ministries while giving leaders practical help to move beyond thinking "service projects" to practicing justice in a compassionate and sustainable ways. Every youth ministry and family would benefit from this read. Love it!"  --Brooklyn Lindsey, Youth Minister; Justice Advocate, The Justice Movement

"As an urban youth ministry practitioner, I have used mission trips to fortify my students in middle and high school. The challenge of maintaining a long-term lesson from a short-term trip is multi-faceted. This book and workbook provide multiple ways for youth leaders to facilitate this process before, during and after the trip. Youth leaders will embrace this material as another gift from the Sticky Faith family." --Virginia Ward, Director of Leadership and Mentored Ministry Initiatives, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
