Kitchen Table Youth Ministry proposes a narrative model of youth ministry in which youth are nurtured into the life of the Christian faith through stories and conversations. This book proposes practices that aim at enlivening the power of these stories to form and bond the generations, and it does so by redesigning the spaces for communal living and eating, and patterns of communication and care, specifically around the kitchen table.

Readers will gain understanding of the concept of kitchen table youth ministry through a set of practices that are easy to implement in homes and churches because they are taken from people's lives.  This book will serve youth leaders, ministry leaders, and parents by prompting them into reflection by questions and challenges posed at the end of each chapter.


Jana Struková is assistant professor of Christian Education and Formation at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas.  She earned a S.T.M. and M.A.R. in Christian Education from Lutheran Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary.
