How do I plan a retreat? What are the common big mistakes I need to be careful to avoid? And how do I do all this without burning out?

Author Jeremy Steele remembers exactly what it felt like being new to youth ministry. In this book he answers real questions posed by beginning youth ministers and addresses all the nuts-and-bolts of everything from counseling a teen to preparing a budget.
