Each "Mentor Me" CD is an interview with a youth ministry veteran who discusses with Doug Fields the topics that are important for a growing youth worker. They talk about how to discipline students, deal with families, maintain a spiritual life, relevant legal issues, and just about everything else you'll need to know about youth ministry.
"Mentor Me" is a great way to get youth leaders solid training. And you can't beat the price since we invite you to make as many copies as you like for your leaders. Good leaders are constantly growing and learning, and since we haven't been able to add more hours into the day, this CD can provide quality youth ministry training on the go.
