"Student ministry is a moving target. You have to keep pace with the culture. Teenagers today are not the same as teenagers ten, twenty, or thirty years ago." - Sound familiar? As a group, youth leaders are not big on tradition - at least that's what they say. But if you scratch the surface, you will quickly find a different story. The fact is that youth ministers are fastidious followers of tradition, doing things in study ministry today that worked for earlier generations of youth leaders. And . . . that can be very health indeed.
Some things in ministry transcend cultural changes. Most often they are timeless principles of ministry, but occasionally programs that are deeply rooted in core principles have also transcended shifts in culture. In this book Cannister sees how four foundational, transcendental principles- purpose, authenticity, transformation, and relationships - have stood the test of time and how when it seems as if the fog has settled on our ministries, these principles continue to serve as beacons of light.
