REVIEW: 10 Lies of Student Ministry by Michael Lukaszewski

FROM: FUSIONLIFE.ORG / BY: BEN BOLES

Lies are all around us. Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but lots of people try to sell us lies everyday. Lies that sex sells, lies that all guys want are girls that are rail thin and blonde, lies that you can only function in business and life on a Windows computer. I know terrible lies all around us. But we take for granted that being of the way, the truth and life that the father of lies can’t impact the church or our student ministries and we are dead wrong.

I stumbled across Michael’s blog one day through the website PlantersBlog.com asking for youth ministers to read and review his new book, 10 Lies of Student Ministry. Now I’m a sucker for free stuff, especially ministry books. So I took the challenge and here I am review a book that is one of those you can quickly work through and read once a year.

Michael wrote a great book that I personally think could be a great counterpart to be read-along side of Purpose Driven Youth Ministry for new student ministers or college students. I think he does a good job of debunking lies and myths of student ministry that sometimes trap us or that we allow ourselves to get caught up in trying to impress our friends, peers and senior ministers. But lets face some facts: youth groups don’t grow churches, guys in larger ministries are trying to figure out ways to make their groups smaller, if we are trying to build a large group of teens we are only stroking our own ego.
