Accompanying Youth on Their Vocational Quests

Most youth ministry programs seem to arise from consumerist, program-driven views of ministry. Lives to Offer presents a different vision: youth ministry as a companioned walk with young people in search of vocation in its public and private dimensions.
Adolescent stories of vocation, gleaned from research encounters with youthful collaborators, pepper this innovative resource.
