I have blogged in the past about the importance of reformed resources and reformed theology within youth ministry programs. It’s just as important to have resources with a reformed perspective for the entire congregation. Faith Alive Christian Resources has come up with a creative idea that will share reformed resources within a congregation AND raise funds for the youth group. Youth groups will earn 40% profit on all books sold through this program.
You can check out the program at youthgroupbooksale.org.
Here’s how it works:
- A youth group leader signs up online.
- The youth group receives a packet with book samples, posters, order forms, and bulletin inserts.
- Church orders are placed with Faith Alive by May 1.
- Books arrive at the church by May 15.
- The youth group delivers the books.
Book titles include:
- Daylight, by Andrew Kuyvenhoven
- Home Grown, by Karen DeBoer
- Leaving Egypt, by Chuck DeGroat
- Sixty at Sixty, by James Schaap
- Song of a Scientist, by Calvin DeWitt
- Honest to God, by James Schaap
- 150 – Finding Your Story in the Psalms, by Kevin Adams
- Living & Loving Life, by Howard Vanderwell
- The Day Metallica Came to Church, by John Van Sloten
- God Loves me Storybook Sets, by Patricia Nederveld
I think this is a pretty good idea and I figured others who scan this blog on the Network might find it helpful. Sign up at youthgroupbooksale.org or give Faith Alive Christian Resources a call.
