The Purpose of this Guide

The purpose of this guide is to provide useful resources on topics relating to Youth Ministry.  An emphasis is placed on helping students from different cultures find information relevant to their world experiences.

In addition to aiding students in their search for books and articles, this guide is broken down into three groups of resources:

  1. General resources on Youth Ministry
  2. Resources on theological and social challenges in various cultural contexts.
  3. Resources on childhood development and health.

Using these resources together will help students form their own understanding of youth ministry in various contexts.

Upcoming Synod of Bishops (Oct. 2018)

Announced in January, the theme chosen by Pope Francis for the upcoming XV General Assembly of the Ordinary Synod of Bishops will focus on young people, their journeys towards maturity, and the accompanying role of the Church.
