012: New eBook for Catholic Youth Ministers
Nick Alexander: Author
What a long journey this has been.
Ever since I had made intentions to write a book to be of help to those who work tirelessly in Catholic youth ministry, sometimes lacking support, sometimes lacking resources, sometimes just wanting a hug… I have been on a whirlwind of experiences.
But it has all come to fruition, and the result is a practical resource, that I hope would be of great help.
In it, I tackle 24 different major issues within modern Catholic youth ministry, that I hope would prove to be be extremely helpful for those in the trenches. In it, I share my thoughts about all sorts of issues, from the profound sacredness of Eucharistic Adoration to the sublime silliness of youth group games.
Drawing Upon Thirty Years of Experience
In writing this, I have drawn upon my fifteen years of experience as a youth group participant, then student leader, then worship leader and speaker, and then another fifteen years where I served as a visiting performer. In the initial fifteen years, I was mostly a youth group/young-adult group junkie, going to as many meetings as I could, taking in all the different ideas over the years. It was during that time that I also converted to Catholicism, due to the influence of the ministry of one of my college groups. In my second fifteen years, I have traveled all over the country, and even World Youth Day, where I had met many youth leaders and served their groups in many different capacities.
Free (Until December 31, 2014)
So now the book is out. And it is now free, for a short period of time. After December 31, I will take down this offer, and set it up at Amazon.
It is my hope that this book will be an invaluable resource, drawing upon my thirty years of close observance to what works, and what doesn’t work, when it comes to Catholic youth ministry. It is my hope that this resource will help inspire creative solutions to most of the youth minister’s problems today.
