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.
Interview description: One of the most commonly asked questions in youth ministry is not, "How do I teach students," but "How do I survive emotionally, socially, and vocationally while still maintaining a healthy youth ministry?" In this interview, Helen gives insight and wisdom on many of the struggles that all youth workers deal with while managing the mystery of doing life and ministry. Some of the topics discussed include guilt, saying no, establishing healthy boundaries, and balancing the demands placed on the lives of youth workers.

As a well-known and sought-after youth ministry speaker, Helen brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to the area of Christian discipleship.
