This book explores the role of the youth minister by looking at a range of metaphors, such as ‘flawed hero’, ‘visionary architect’, ‘party planner’ and ‘guardian of souls’. Each chapter takes one of these metaphors as a central theme, offers biblical and/or theological reflection on this aspect of youth ministry, explains the relevant theory and the necessary skills, uses real-life stories from practitioners to bring the metaphor to life, summarizes the key principles and values, gives questions for reflection and makes suggestions for further reading.
