after reading the book asian american youth ministry and meeting with a local san diego youth worker, daniel so, i posted these observations. now, daniel (who is clearly one of those rare youth workers who’s a good thinker also) has posted a 3-part response. it’s really fascinating stuff; very worth reading:
part 1, daniel talks about the problem of asian american youth workers not staying in youth ministry long term (for a variety of reasons).
part 2, daniel talks about abdication of the youth ministry in asian american churches, and the need to develop student leadership.
part 3, daniel talks about the isolation most asian american youth ministries experience from the adults in the church (uh, clearly relevant for all youth workers!)
