Youth in Cell Ministry
Discipling the Next Generation Now
What people are saying:
“One of the most exciting things that is happening in cell churches around the world is how thousands of young people are being discipled and also being trained as leaders! As I read the manuscript of this book, I became so fascinated with the depth in which Joel Comiskey deals with one of the most important subjects in church life: “What is the best way to truly be effective in discipling the next generation?” I can’t wait to have our main lead pastors and youth ministers devouring this book!” (Abe Huber, principal leader of the Igreja de Paz movement, Brazil).
“When Joel undertakes a cell group topic, you know you’re getting a thoroughly researched resource, filled with practical ideas and proven strategies. As a former Youth Pastor with a groups-based ministry, I can tell you that Youth In Cell Ministry is a fully loaded toolbox for any leader that is serious about discipling the next generation” (Andrew S. Mason, Founder of SmallGroupChurches.com).
“This is one of the most exciting books I have ever had in my hands. You can not lead cell ministry without empowering the members to evangelize. But the content of this book goes beyond evangelism. The biblical perspective of youth ministry is clearly articulated in this book. I love working with young people, and I believe that youth work invovles more than youth services. Youth need a much larger cause for living. Empowering them is a debt we owe to the future of the church. I have been inspired by Comiskey’s investigation. The stories here are inspiring and the dynamics are typical of all of Joel’s books. I recommend this book to all who see the potential of young people and want to disciple them in cell ministry” (Jorge Peña, founder and lead pastor at iRest, Reseda, California).
“Church is not a sail boat; it’s a war ship. Our young adults have understood that and pastor Joel realizes that God is moving through young people around the world. The church’s greatest pastors are still to be developed” (Josué Bengtson, pastor and apostle of Belem Foursquare Church, Belem, Brazil).
“Joel begins with the why and then moves into the what and how to. This progression is vital for the why is seeing youth know Jesus, become disciples of Jesus, and then to plant churches throughout the world. Joel writes, “One important goal of this book is to help readers analyze, research, and prepare to reach youth in their particular culture—to become cross-cultural missionaries where they live and work.” Because “everything rises and falls on leadership,” Joel encourages youth pastors to guard their mind, heart, and soul. Finally, wherever you or your church family are regarding youth cells, I wholeheartedly recommend this comprehensive, informative, visionary, and uplifting read” (Rob Campbell, founder and lead pastor of Cypress Creek Church, Wimberley, Texas).
“With a great Biblical underpinning and powerful, real-life testimonies, Joel Comiskey unveils a clear vision for youth cell ministry. I am inspired again with the incredible opportunity the church has to reach the next generation. I recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to not just “baby-sit” young people, but raise them up to be disciples of Jesus!” (Robert Herber, Lead Pastor, All Peoples Church, San Diego California)
“Joel has been an incredible help to our church in regards to cell ministry. I love his passion for seeing young people come to know Jesus and become disciples. I am thankful for his thoughtful leadership on the why and how of discipling youth through cell ministry. This book will show you how” (Zach Daniel, Lead Pastor, Antioch Community Church, Dallas, Texas).
