Kitchen Table Youth Ministry | Inviting God to Dinner (Strukova)
Bonding over Stories
Kitchen Table Youth Ministry proposes a narrative model of youth ministry in which youth are nurtured into the life of the Christian faith through stories and conversations. This book aims to enliven our practices of sharing stories to bond the generations. It does so by redesigning the spaces for communal living and eating, and the patterns of communication and care, specifically around the kitchen table.
Practices shared in Kitchen Table Youth Ministry are easy to implement in homes and churches because they are drawn from people's lives. This book will serve youth leaders, ministry leaders, and parents by prompting them into reflection by questions and challenges posed at the end of each chapter.
