"Expert" Testimonials

"For over a year now, I've been part of the above-titled new book being developed by author Scott Aughtmon that interviews prevailing student ministry leaders from across the country on what it takes to birth a lasting ministry to teenagers."

"The book is in the final editing stages - I just read the manuscript and let me tell you, it's amazing. Contributors to the book include Mark Oestreicher from Youth Specialties, Jonathan McKee from The Source for Youth Ministry, Greg Stier of Dare 2 Share, Ben Hardman at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY... the list goes on and on. Somehow it ended up that one whole chapter shares my philosophy of ministry and strategy insights. Crazy, I know."

"Anyhow, when the book is available, I'll be sure to share the link love with you here. I consider it a priviledge to write about what God has done to impact teenagers in spite of myself."

Jonathan Herron (From his blog: http://jonathanherron.typepad.com)
Former Executive Team member at NewSpring Church (one of the 100 fastest growing churches in North America) and currently serves as Lead Pastor of a new church called Catalyst in Kent, Ohio. He's also a retreat and conference speaker through The Source Speakers Network.



"Scott Aughtmon is one of the most passionate and creative leaders I know. He challenges the way I think. His ebook is a must-read for youth leaders that want to make a difference."

Mark Batterson
Lead Pastor, National Community Church in Washington, DC (www.theaterchurch.com). Chosen by Outreach magazine as "The 25 Most Innovative Churches in America". He is the author of the popular book, "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day" (http://www.chasethelion.com). He writes a popular daily blog at http://www.evotional.com.

 

"As I read through the pre-release of this book, it was a blessing to hear from my peers, that I have held in high regard, how they would handle the same situation as I have been given."

"It was very similar to being in a dialogue seminar and people are sharing from their good experiences and their struggles on what would be the best course of action to a certain situation."

"This tool ends up being a great resource for rookies as well as veterans because of its approach; I would highly recommend it to anybody involved in youth work as both a primer and also a boost."

-Jeff Slack
Jeff currently serves as the Pastor of Student Ministries at the Crystal Cathedral (Garden Grove, CA). Jeff has worked with students close to 20 years; both as a volunteer and paid youth worker. He's been a regular contributor to Interl'inc music-based youth curriculum and was recently nominated as one of the top 20 Youth Pastors by The Church Report Magazine.


"As I read through the pre-release of this book I was amazed at how many
different answers there were to the same questions."

" I still feel strongly about the answers that I gave, but seeing all the other answers from my peers, who I respect, gave me a larger picture of youth ministry overall."

"From this book you will learn about the many ideas of youth ministry, even ones I don't personally agree with. The unique format of this book gives you a great collection of practical insights from real youth workers."

" Most, like me, are actual youth workers. I highly recommend this book for all youth ministers--those just starting out and those wise veterans. You will take away many nuggets and new insight to implement what you are doing at your local church. You will because there are so many practical insights offered."

Brenda Seefeldt
Brenda has been working in youth ministry since 1981 and still serves in her local church. Brenda's experiences, influences and deft insight birthed the youth ministry resource, Wild Frontier (http://www.wildfrontier.org), in 1990. Wild Frontier is a place for "out there" youth ministry ideas and resources. One of those ideas has been family-based youth ministry so Wild Frontier spun off all of those ideas and resources to Family-Based Youth Ministry (http://www.familybasedyouthministry.org). Brenda is also the author of many popular resources.


"Scott, stop trying to market this just to youth pastors – because this is great information for every ministry leader!"

"When I first saw this book, I had a nagging concern – would this just be another rehash of all the other stuff that’s out there for youth pastors? Frankly, the main reason I bought it was because I’d been impressed with Scott’s blog postings."

" What a delightful surprise! Reading this is like listening in to a mastermind group of youth pastors sharing how they have learned from mistakes, and how they set up ministry to be truly effective. I read the whole thing in one sitting, furiously taking notes and highlighting key ideas."

"Now here’s an important point: this book is good reading for everyone in ministry leadership roles, including lay leaders. Why? Because the primary message, and much of the content, applies – build ministry systems that carry on without you, train leaders, pour yourself into people. I am recommending this book to all the Bible teachers I coach and encourage."

"Reading Scott Aughtmon's new Ebook, '...Lasting Student Ministry' is akin to
sitting 'round a table with a band of well-weathered youth ministry veterans
as they share their various views on assembling a student ministry with real
eternal impact."


"You'll find great insights through the streams of convergence and divergence in their thinking and praxis. The combined years of youth ministry experience of the ministers Scott pulled together is in the hundreds of years. These folks have more to share than just a really good crowd-breaker involving balloons, chocolate sauce and a live gecko!"

Customer Testimonials

Packed With Useful Information

"So far it has made me start to think about what is really important with my youth like... Am I just their friend or I am teaching them the things of God? Am I teaching them to build their relationship with Him - one that will stick with them long after I am gone, or they have left to go to college?"

"Thanks for the book, I was a little skeptical about buying online, but what impressed me most was as soon as I contacted you, I recieved an email within mintues helping set up the download and the contacts to follow up that all was okay. God please you in your ministry and for having a passion for youth."

And in later email...

"A couple of other things that I have learned as I studied your book is that the youth, along with the adult leaders, need to develop a vision statement as suggested by Jonathan McKee. Also Wes Black stated that as a youth leader we need to spend time with adults to be able to stay in touch with what is going on and to inform the church about our ministry's direction. This book is packed with so much useful information that a youth pastor or leader could change a same old, same old group into a growing, outreaching youth group."

Enough Information To Help Youth Ministries At Any Size And Location

"Thank you for the follow-up. I am making a copies for my youth team
so we can go through the book and study guide."

"One thing I like a lot just from skimming through is the diversity in
the people contributing. There is definitley enough information to help
youth ministries at any size and location. Thanks for the book and I
look forward to the coming e-zine as well."

Never Bought An Ebook? That's Ok.

"I confess that I am over 40, I hate computers and I have never, ever,
ordered an ebook before
. But "How you can build a lasting Student Ministry"
looked like it had answers to some questions I was asking, so I took the
plunge and ordered it online. I got the email from Scott with instructions for downloading the book. Guess what? I couldn't get it to work."

"That didn't surprise me. My computer hates me right back. I hit "reply" on the
email and explained the problem I was having. Scott responded to my cry for
help quickly and personally and helped me thru the download process.
Personal service? That is so old school. I like it. I may even download
another ebook. Someday.

Worried About Ordering Online?
Don't worry. I'll help you if you have any problems.

"I am a youth director for Jr. and Sr. High youth groups in a small town in
Iowa. I am always looking for ways to improve our ministry to our youth. I
ordered How To Build A Lasting Student Ministry. I did not get the link, but
did receive my receipt for purchasing. There was an e-mail address for
Scott Aughtmon directing a person to e-mail if there were problems
downloading the book. I did so and received an immediate response. I had
already received the link for the book, but it was great to know that
someone is so diligent to return an e-mail when you are having a problem.

A Practical Book You Can Share With Your Whole Team For ONE Price.

"Thanks for the email. The download was smooth and easy and I loved being
able to download bonus e-books too!"

"I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but I have printed it out, given
copies to my fellow youth leaders and I will give you some feedback once I
have a look at it."

"Thank you for creating a resource for youth leaders. I was amazed at how
relevent the scenario that you featured in the introduction of the e-book
was. We have just started our youth ministry and so many resources
targetted at youth leaders fail to be practical and do not cater for those
who are starting with 12 kids (and only a few of those are regulars).
