We’ve had the honor of receiving some great feedback on Small(er) Church Youth Ministry: No Staff, No Money, No Problem. We’d love to hear from you.
Brad and Stephanie have a sweet affection for smaller churches – the churches most of us serve. But the book is more than a love letter. These pages offer practical systems, structures and vision that will help smaller congregations move from “We have these challenges, so we can’t…” to “We have these advantages, so we can…”
On a side note (this doesn’t fit into a neat, short endorsement), the thing I love about this book are the little notes that can only come from years of experience helping normal-sized churches succeed. This line is typical of what I’m talking about:
“Create a column called INCOME. If this money comes from your pocket, STOP! As long as you are funding the ministry, the congregation won’t.” Seriously, there’s a story behind that advice.

Small(er) Church Youth Ministry is a handbook for any congregation that has felt periodically paralyzed by their size, thinking, “Because we’re a small church, we can’t…” or “We just don’t have enough ______.” Brad and Stephanie have earned the wisdom they write about through their work alongside countless small congregations. This book will be a gift to today’s church.Mark Devries,Founder, Ministry ArchitectsAuthor of Sustainable Youth Ministry and Family-Based Youth Ministry
