A Youth Ministry Reader

I recently posted a Gospel-Centered reader, and I thought it would be helpful to post a youth ministry reader with several articles from The Gospel Coalition as well. Though I am not a youth pastor, I lead a high school small group at our church and I often have the privilege of preaching to high school students. So from time-to-time I think about youth ministry from a gospel-centered,  theologically-informed, and culturally-engaged perspective. Whether you are a pastor, youth pastor, small group leader, or a parent, I hope these articles will be helpful.
