The Skinny on Communication by White and Wallace
Everything you do and say sends a message to the people around you. So what message are you sending to the teenagers in your youth group—and to their parents and to other people connected to your ministry?
It’s impossible to meet teenagers’ foundational needs without effective communication. And the more effectively you communicate, the better you can give your students exactly what they’re seeking and needing.
The Skinny on Communication isn’t about formulas or a five-step plan that will solve your communication problems as a youth worker. But it will guide you through specific principles that can move you closer toward
mastering this vital skill.
You’ll explore practical ideas for communicating effectively with teenagers, parents, and other partners in your ministry—and you’ll see how all of these practices can be rooted in Christ-like love.
Prepare to be challenged, and allow yourself to be surprised. And along the way, re-examine your assumptions and seek a fresh perspective on communicating effectively as a youth worker.
