“Readers and Writers” Episode 3 with Cameron Cole

July 6, 2017

One of the primary failures of youth ministry is that the gospel is reduced to justification. —Cameron Cole



 

Cameron ColeUnlocking the Bible continues to release weekly episodes of Readers and Writers with Colin Smith, a podcast recorded live at The Gospel Coalition’s 2017 National Conference.

Our third guest is Cameron Cole, who shares about his writing, youth ministry philosophy, and newest book from Crossway, Gospel-Centered Youth Ministry: A Practical Guide. Here’s a summary of the book’s content:

Youth ministry is an essential part of most evangelical churches. And yet, there is a surprising lack of resources written specifically for youth workers focused on viewing all aspects of youth ministry through a gospel-focused lens.

Featuring contributions from a host of experienced youth workers from a wide variety of churches, this how-to manual offers guidance related to every facet of youth ministry, from planning short-term mission trips to working with parents. Theologically rooted yet eminently practical, this handbook will equip youth leaders to effectively shepherd the young people under their care—training them to live faithfully in their homes, churches, and schools.

Listen to Pastor Colin’s interview with Cameron! (You can also subscribe to the iTunes podcast.)

You only work like one hour.” I wanted to tell my grandpa we have two worship services on Sunday morning, and they go for three hours by themselves....

Your Life Is Your Mission Field

Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner, but blessed is he who is generous to the poor. (Proverbs 14:21)  I know a guy who sold his business and went to be a missionary in Asia. While many young men were seeking success (whatever that means), he found it and left it to share...
