Take Mile Markers for a Spin!

Mile Markers:  A Path for Nurturing Adolescent Faith is the heart and soul of my youth ministry practices and personal ministry lessons from thirteen years of leading the student ministry at Redeemer Covenant Church in Tulsa, OK.
It’s based on a scriptural roadmap for walking alongside our spiritual and biological children as they travel the long, winding road of adolescence.
If you are a youth worker who wants a more organic approach to leading adolescents on their spiritual journey, this book can help you envision and practice that kind of ministry.
If you are a parent who wants to be more intentional about leading your kids spiritually, this book has helps, reminders and ideas to guide you.
If you know a friend for whom this would be a good read, you can spread the word!
So, I invite you to take a spin with this sample chapter of Mile Markers!  My hope is that you’ll be energized and eager to learn more!
