Reaching Young People contains ten inspirational stories to help churches and youth workers think about new ways of mission and ministry to young people. The book aims to help churches who are only involved in basic youth work to see what else they might do to reach more young people in their community. After each story, there is a set of guidelines, suggestions and ideas to help churches apply principles to their own context.
