For more than 50 years, relational or incarnational ministry has been a major focus in youth ministry. But for too long, those relationships have been used as tools - as a means to an end - as adults try to influence students to accept, know, trust, believe, or participate in something. While our motives may be good, it's possible that by focusing on these goals, we're not ministering the whole person.

When we choose not to engage in the full life of a student, we run the risk of failing them and our ministry. In Relationships Unfiltered: Help for Youth Workers, Volunteers, and Parents on Creating Authentic Relationships, author Andrew Root challenges us to reconsider our motives and to begin to consider simply being with and doing life alongside teenagers with no agenda other than to love them right where they are.

As he shares stories of his (and others') successes and failures in relational youth ministry, you'll find practical ideas to help you recreate the role of relationships in your own youth ministry. If you're involved in the lives of teenagers, whether as a youth pastor, volunteer youth worker, church leader, or parent, you'll want to read this book and work together to discover the value of place-sharing in the lives of teens. You'll see that it's time to tear down the old structure of relational youth ministry and start again.
