Heflin presents the work of the youth minister in five pairs of roles a youth minister must play. Each pair includes tension. Am I primarily an evangelist with lost youth or a discipler or Christian youth? Am I primarily a spiritual friend to hurting teenagers or an equipping recruiter of adults who will invest in teenagers? Of course, the answer to each question is Yes. The youth minister is all of that. The book is a great addition to the literature available for those who are called to be youth ministers.
