Teenagers Matter

Mark Cannister


Description: Bringing together the latest ideas and research on adolescence, a veteran practitioner champions student ministry as integral to the life of the church.

More Information

Teenagers matter! When they are valued, they bring life to nearly every sector of society, including the church. Although student ministry has come a long way in the last century, few churches have made it a high priority.

Veteran practitioner Mark Cannister brings together the latest ideas and research on adolescence to champion student ministry as integral to the life of the church. He shows how connecting teenagers into the church's larger intergenerational community enriches the entire congregation, casting a prophetic vision for what the church can become when it truly values its young people.

This comprehensive yet accessible addition to the award-winning Youth, Family, and Culture series has been field tested and written in close consultation with youth pastors. It outlines the resources necessary for a vital student ministry and includes sidebars and discussion questions.
