"In an age where teenagers are deeply engaged in virtual communities and social networks, they∆re still feeling alone and isolated. It may sound all too simple, but the truth is that you have the opportunity to make a profound impact on the lives of students with the simple act of spending time with them, one-on-one. Whether you∆re a volunteer or the lead youth pastor, getting some students to open up and share their lives can be a challenge. In this practical book you∆ll learn the importance of connecting with students on an individual basis and get helpful ideas on how to engage a variety of students in meaningful dialogue. You∆ll explore and learn more about connecting with six different types of students, including: “ The ‘No Way÷ Kid“ The ‘Not Interested÷ Kid“ The ‘Checking Things Out Kid÷“ The ‘Stagnant÷ Kid“ The ‘Growing÷ Kid“ The ‘Looking for Ministry÷ KidConnect will walk you through the steps to lead you into relationships with students that go beyond the youth room and impact them into adulthood."
