Overview

In Rebuilding Youth Ministry, Christopher Wesley coaches fellow Catholic leaders how to overcome common hurdles of ministering to young people. Wesley shares how he faced feelings of complacency, underestimated youth, and entertained rather than ministered in his own parish. Wesley built a distinctive program based on small group faith formation and sustained with the assistance of more than sixty volunteer adult mentors.

Adopting a tone and structure similar to the bestselling books Rebuilt and Tools for Rebuilding, Wesley lays out ten strategies that helped grow participation in his high school program from nine teens to ninety and the middle school program from forty teens to eighty-five. His insider tips include: Think More Than Pizza; Think Small Groups and Mentors; Take Back Confirmation; Go Beyond the Youth Room; Accept That It's Messy; Keep Asking Questions; and Keep Growing.
