The book is turned in and The Youth Cartel has the ball. I’m really trying to be cool, but I keep amping myself up with each little step. Here’s the back cover teaser for the book:
Masterpiece. That’s how Paul the Apostle describes us in his letter to the church in Ephesus. We are God’s masterpiece. Most people never hear that one phrase. Even fewer will believe it. Masterpiece: The Art of Discipling Youth uncovers the process of revealing a teenager as the masterpiece Christ created them to be. It doesn’t approach discipleship with a blank slate, sketching with small groups or painting with programs. Instead, it focuses on revealing the art that is already under the surface of every young person. It removes the grime of life and restores the vibrancy of the true colors underneath.
This book is for youth workers who are tired of canned meetings geared towards the masses. Veteran youth worker Paul Martin shares his process for recognizing individual youth as what they are: God’s masterpiece.
Yeah, I’m way to pumped to be cool about this.
