It doesn’t seem to make sense: Jesus tells his disciples to take a lesson from Satan himself. A scandalous idea? Yes. Essential to the Christian life? Definitely. Drawing on Jesus’s parable of the shrewd manager in Luke 16, Rick Lawrence explores Jesus’s shocking mandate to be as shrewd as Satan and as innocent as the Holy Spirit. In fact, Jesus implies, if we are going to be any good for the Kingdom of God, we’ve got to be a lot shrewder than we are now. Shrewd shows us how Jesus was naturally shrewd in every encounter he had, using leverage such as laughter, generosity, and bluntness to influence a situation for good. God calls us to be shrewd without evil intent, just as Jesus was. Because the truth is that we have no salvation outside of the holy shrewdness of a loving God. And that’s a scandalous story worth telling.

“If all I did for the next 10 years was pass along this book to hungry youth leaders, I would have a fruitful decade.” —Dave Rahn, Senior Vice President and Chief Ministry Officer for Youth For Christ “In this book, Rick calls us to run arm-in-arm with teenagers—to the epicenter of that mystery, that person, that incarnate child, that troublemaker, that up-ender, that ultimate rescuer.” —Mark Oestreicher, Partner, The Youth Cartel There’s a surging hunger among teenagers for Jesus. New research shows that they want a clearer understanding of what Jesus really said and did, and how faith in matters in their lives. In fact, that desire is so deep, it’s #1 on their “wish list” for what they’d like to talk about at church. But are we doing that? Even though we assume that everything we do in youth ministry is about Jesus, the evidence is clear:That’s not what our students say they’re experiencing. So what would a youth ministry look like if it shifted toward a passionate, persistent, and permeating focus on drawing students into a closer orbit around Jesus? Inside the pages of Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry, you’ll discover the foundation for a ministry that is Jesus-centered, along with the bricks for building it. You’ll discover that not only is it possible to create this kind of ministry, it’s also essential that you pursue this path. Eight years after his book was first published, introducing the language and structure of a new way of doing youth ministry, author and longtime Group Magazine editor Rick Lawrence has completely rewritten and revised Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry. It’s packed with new insight, new research, and dozens of field-tested ideas for planting and nurturing a ministry environment that is Jesus-magnetic. Help satisfy teenagers’ hunger for Jesus in richly nourishing and sustaining ways by shifting the orbit of your ministry.

If you’re a volunteer in youth ministry, you’ve likely wondered: “How did I get here?” No matter how you’d normally answer, one thing’s for sure: You’re “here” because Jesus nudged or maybe even dragged you here. That’s because Jesus loves you and loves teenagers, and he wants them to get what you have to give. But how do you maximize your time with them? And how can you make an impact that draws students into a closer orbit around Jesus? When you’re captured by the “real” Jesus, not the “knockoff” Jesus we often hear about in our culture, then your pursuit of him influences your kids’ pursuit of him. And when you’re all-in with the real Jesus, you have lasting impact in your interactions with students. This guide for volunteers is a condensed version of Rick Lawrence’s wildly successful book Jesus-Centered Youth Ministry. It delivers a laser-sharp focus on why we need a renewed focus on Jesus in youth ministry, and gives you practical, sustainable ways to put JCYM ideas into practice. You’ll encounter page after page of field-tested ideas for crafting and nurturing a Jesus-magnetic ministry environment. Help satisfy your teenagers’ hunger for Jesus by helping to shift the orbit of your ministry.
