Bethel Professor Announces Book Release

Professor of Youth Ministry Terry Linhart, Ph.D., gives youth workers deep perspective and creative solutions to pressing global issues in a book recently released with colleague and co-author, David Livermore, Ph.D. Published by Zondervan, the book is called “What Can We Do? Practical Ways Your Youth Ministry Can Have a Global Conscience.”

“For quite some time, Dave and I have been helping youth groups discover creative and practical ways to move beyond the borders that often confine youth ministry, says Linhart. “As our students’ global awareness increases and they want to make a difference beyond just going on a short-term mission trip, how can we help lead them? As globalization presses in and reshapes our communities, how do we respond in a Christ-like way to the issues and problems?”

This book answers these questions and offers practical suggestions on how your ministry can respond to issues like poverty, immigration, human trafficking, HIV/AIDS and many more. You’ll help students impact the world around them, as they understand how their faith intersects with these global issues.
