4 Views on Pastoring Lgbtq Teenagers: Effective Ministry to Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, and Questioning Students Among Us
What do I do when a teenager comes out to me? How do I respond in a way that's helpful rather than creating additional problems?4 Views on Pastoring LGBTQ Teenagers is a frank and compassionate conversation with four in-the-trenches youth workers who have wrestled with these questions and strengthened their ministries as a result. In fact, it's out of real-life experience with gay, bi, cisgender, trans, queer, or questioning teens in their own youth groups that these youth workers are able to offer up their approaches-approaches which are then not theoretical at all, but practical and born of relational, everyday ministry.Will you find all the answers in this book? No. Look elsewhere for theological debate; look elsewhere for pat, one-size-fits-all methodologies. Youth ministry is often messy and complex, but it's a divine calling to connect every youth with Jesus: straight, gay, bi, cisgender, trans, queer, or questioning.
