Effective ministry to youth today is more than pizza feeds and ski-trips says Wendell J. Loewen. More than ever people who work with youth in congregations are seeking ways to look beneath programs to understand the consumerism and alienation in postmodern youth culture and then respond with mature understandings of God's call.
Beyond Me is written accessibly and practically for all who are working and training to work in youth ministry, whether as youth ministers or as lay leaders. Rich in personal stories and practical examples, Loewen helps youth workers know what postmodern youth ministry looks like, but without simply giving another model to copy without thinking it through.

About the Author:

Wendell J. Loewen is a graduate of Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary, and did his doctoral studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. His writing has appeared in Direction and Christian Leader.

Review:

People involved in youth ministry today are attempting to shift away from a fragmented, isolated, consumer, and spectator philosophy of Christian nurture. Wendell Loewen has given us the pivotal guide for such change. He provides hope and strategy that is theologically solid, congregationally owned, and doable. --Chap Clark, Professor of Youth, Family, and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary
