Anyone interested in youth ministry? Gospel Centred Youth Work and Ministry - Kindle edition by John Caldwell. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. Many approaches to Christian youth work and ministry are shaped by the philosophies of relativism and relevance. This book calls for youth work aims, values and methods which are rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Two of the most popular approaches to working with young people are Christian youth work and youth ministry. ‘Gospel-Centred Youth Work and Ministry’ is a critique of both approaches and calls for an approach to Christian youth work which is embedded in mission; faithful in presenting the gospel; empowered by the Spirit; and connected to the creeds of the church and the church of the creeds.
