Review:

 
   A God-send for you!

        Laura Cooley of St. Paul's Church, Patchogue, NY writes...

  Not the Same Old Done-it-before Youth Meetings is a God-send!! You have laid out in an organized and easy-to-read fashion so many wonderful ideas and activity plans that we will never again feel uncomfortable when getting ready for our next Christian Youth Group meeting. I am new to the role of Youth Group leader and your book gives me confidence that we can indeed succeed with God's help.


"I have had the good fortune of knowing Tim Ferguson for at least a decade. He has the passion to reach young people, which is so key to any successful youth leader. He is deeply committed to relating to and caring for the youth that come into his program and his genuine concern and love have enabled him to be extraordinarily effective "Tim is amazingly creative, coming up with themes and ideas for communicating the gospel to youth that are fresh, fun and above all do the job. He is collaboratively creative, working collectively with both the youth and his other leaders in generating these ideas and themes"
 

Youth leaders of the caliber of Tim Ferguson are a rare and precious gift. Over the years his passion, creativity, integrity and leadership gifts have inspired me to be a better leader not only to youth but to those with whom I serve in ministry."
 
Rev. Kennedy McGowan , First Presbyterian Church, Hollywood, Florida

The ideas here work... Every one has been 'teen-tested.'


Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings is a practical, eminently usable handbook by someone who has devoted himself heart and soul to working with youth. The practicality of the book is its most important feature.

The ideas here work. I know that because I've seen them work.
They shouldn't work, of course. After all, everybody knows today's teens aren't interested in anything serious. Today's teens are ruled entirely by hormones. You can't capture the interest of a teenager today unless you come at them via the Internet or text messaging. Right? Well, if those are the kinds of teens you have in your youth group, then the ideas in this book may not work so well. It's not a book of magic spells that will transform a hoodlum into a choirboy. But if you've got teens like the ones I know - good kids who maybe have short attention spans sometimes, but who also care deeply about the world and about right and wrong -then this book is a treasure house of ideas.

And it's not just a random bunch of ideas. It shows you how a gifted and experienced youth leader plans an entire program. Not everything here will work with every group, of course. Every group is different, and every youth leader has different strengths. But even if you can't use every activity, some of the ideas may inspire you to create your own, adapted to the needs of your particular group.

 One of the most useful features is the detailed Appendix, featuring actual skit scripts, questionnaires, etc. Again, this is extremely practical. (One minor quibble: it would have been useful if the Table of Contents included a list of everything in the Appendix.)

I recommend Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings both for youth leaders who are seeking new ideas, and for anyone who is interested in the thought processes behind the planning of a successful youth program... Frank Tangredi
