The Skinny on Discipleship: A Big Youth Ministry Topic in a Single Little Book

Group Publishing, Inc.

Life-shaping discipleship isn’t a random event. It’s an intentional adventure, and teenagers need someone who’s walking with them on the journey and helping them grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Jesus modeled this for us through relationship with his closest disciples. He spent time with them, shared life with them, taught them to obey, shared experiences with them, gave them direction, and promised to be with them. This is what we are called to as youth workers—the model for us to follow. The Skinny on Discipleship will become a practical guide in your role as a disciple-maker. You’ll discover innovative insights and powerful encouragement for knowing Jesus, loving him, and placing him at the center of your life—and then helping teenagers along on that same journey. When it comes to discipleship, there are no shortcuts, there’s no handbook for teenagers, and there’s no timeline on what it will take to help each teenager draw closer to Jesus. But you can follow the model of Jesus, rely on the truth that he’s with you, and remember that ultimately he loves teenagers even more than you do.
