Edge Core Handbook
Survival of the Fittest
They pound their fists against the door and press their faces on the glass. You step backward and recompose yourself. Do you have enough supplies? Are you prepared for the onslaught of what is about to come? You pull out your Edge Core Handbook and confidently nod – after all, those aren’t zombies outside the doors; they are middle school youth.
Middle school youth ministry is critical in our world, today. We must reach and pass on the faith to youth in junior high in a way we never have before. But, middle school can be scary. From the tangential conversations in small group to the seemingly boundless supply of energy, there are a lot of things that can send a great Core Member running for cover. The Edge Core Handbook provides tools, tips, and tricks to make your Edge Core Members thrive in ministry rather than simply spend each week trying to survive.
