Is it time to rethink the way we do youth ministry? What can we learn from Christ himself? In this provocative new book, Steve Griffiths argues that for far too long youth ministry has relied on an incarnational model. As a result, youth ministers have felt the need to spend large amounts of time hanging out with young people in order to ?earn the right’ to share the gospel. But, Steve Griffiths argues, this is not how Jesus himself ministered to others. Rather, Christ operated with a model of kairos time ? his encounters with people were brief but eternally significant. Youth ministers need to rethink and broaden their Christology in order to work more effectively. Models for Youth Ministry will show them how.
