Spend any time in youth ministry and elephants will show up:- the issues, struggles, and problems that youth will bring with them to retreats, youth gatherings, and relational ministry.
From mental health issues to substance abuse to sudden tragedies in the community elephants can come in all shapes and sizes. And we as ministers called to love and serve young people need to be prepared to identify and address the elephants that might be lurking in your youth room. This short, yet extremely useful, book will help you do just that.
Through insights into the teenage brain, real-life stories, and pastoral response ideas, this book will help you and your youth ministry team bring the love of Christ and the truth of His Church to every teen (even the ones with elephants in tow!).
