For more than two centuries, youth ministries have either strengthened teenagers after a special encounter with God or tried to retain them until such a moment when God shows up. Here veteran youth ministry expert Mark Senter provides the first substantial history of the phenomenon of American Protestant youth ministry. More than a history, this book highlights the evolution of adolescence and adolescent spirituality, outlines three distinct cycles in the history of youth ministry, describes the major shapers of youth ministry over the last century, and helps readers understand trends and changes in youth ministry and their connections to broader church life.

From the Back Cover:

"Youth ministry changes--and must change--in the context of changing cultures. Mark Senter has experienced much of the history of modern youth ministry as a youth pastor himself and as a professor and leading scholar in the field. In When God Shows Up, Senter has produced a book that professors, students, youth leaders, and senior pastors should study. It challenged and expanded my thinking. Senter's latest book is grist for dynamic, ministry-transforming discussion."--Dean Borgman, Charles E. Culpeper Professor of Youth Ministries, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"When God Shows Up will be a standard text in the field and will help us all stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us with a passion to reach and nurture young people."--Leonard Kageler, executive administrator, Association of Youth Ministry Educators; professor, Nyack College

"The profession of youth ministry has a debilitating case of amnesia. Senter's book is the antidote. He brings the untold stories of the past to life and draws valuable lessons for today's youth ministers. Every youth minister and youth ministry educator in America should read this book. It is the most comprehensive history of youth ministry available. Senter approaches youth ministry sympathetically from a strong faith perspective, yet also critically, aware of the importance of learning from the mistakes of the past."--Thomas E. Bergler, associate professor of ministry and missions, Huntington University; senior associate editor, The Journal of Youth Ministry

"Mark Senter has done it again! Those of us who have read and used The Coming Revolution in Youth Ministry have waited far too long for this rich addition to the field of youth ministry. When God Shows Up offers a remarkable sweep across the heritage of youth ministry, demonstrating the factors that have shaped us today. Students of youth ministry will benefit from this work for years to come. I urge all those who care about where youth ministry has been and where it is going to read this fine book."--Wesley Black, professor of student ministry, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
