Contemplative Youth Ministry


Publisher: SPCK Publishing; Re-issue edition

Practising the Presence of Jesus with Young People

Contemplative Youth Ministry is rooted in Mark Yaconelli’s experience of co-directing the acclaimed Youth Ministry and Spirituality Project. Through this project, churches and youth ministers have explored contemplative prayer, discernment, spiritual direction, covenant community, spiritual practice and Sabbath-living as a way of resourcing ministries with youth. The results have been transformative, and this engaging book, richly illustrated with personal stories, provides refreshment and new ways of thinking for anyone who has grown weary or disillusioned with the vital tasks of working with and caring for young people.
