Today, kids desperately need our support as they get their balance in this challenging world. On a daily basis, they struggle in a world that makes them second-guess everything about themselves, including their looks, technology, relationships, and young personalities.

Through her own experience, author Cassie Moore shows how to gently lift kids up when they fall to their knees, wobbly and unsure that they can stand. She explains the importance of cheering kids on—reminding them that no matter what happens, they have a loving God who walks with them through the ups and downs of life. 

Whether you’re a volunteer or a professional youth worker, Authentic Youth Ministry will encourage you to understand yourself better as a leader, work more confidently with your students, and embrace the privilege of seeing kids, parents, and entire families grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.

Get your FREE downloadable study guide to use Authentic Youth Ministry as a valuable training piece for volunteers no matter their level of experience. 

For anyone looking to dive into the world of Youth Ministry, this book gives you an honest look into the challenges, joys, and God-inspired moments that you will encounter. Cassie mixes personal stories and struggles with practical advice on how to engage in spiritual formation in the lives of today’s youth. As someone who has spent the last 11 years in youth ministry, I can attest that this book will help encourage and refocus those that have been in the “trenches” and give guidance for those who just raised their hand at the last church meeting to volunteer to be the adult in charge of the youth on their next retreat!

In Authentic Youth Ministry, Cassie Moore draws on her experience as  DCE in youth ministry to provide a realistic and optimistic view of the critical importance of youth ministry.  Volunteer youth workers and those just starting out into ministry will gain helpful and practical insights that will help orient their own approach to youth ministry. For those of us veterans, Cassie provides a helpful reminder for why we love what we do.

With refreshing sincerity, Cassie not only reframes leadership for ministry to teenagers, but provides an insightful list of practical helps for both the volunteer and professional youth worker alike. Authentic Youth Ministry is filled with stories from childhood, the teenager years, and ministry life . . . you can’t help but to see yourself in its pages and leave with a renewed sense of God’s call to serve young people.
