Youth Worker Training

Inside you will find Youth Worker Training on how to face the following underlying conditions that are plaguing the North American Christian Church.

  • Moralism
  • Therapeutic Religion
  • Modern Deism
  • Self-Absorption (meism)
  • Consumerism
  • Pluralism


Inside you will also find Curriculum to address these issues in your youth ministry, as well as a Parent’s Guide.  The following lessons seek to provide teachers with engaging and solid theological lessons to address the conditions above:

  • What’s Wrong with Being Nice?
  • Getting (un)Comfortable with God
  • The Inescapable God
  • Jesus Loves Me This I Know… But What About Everyone Else?
  • Three Little Birds and The Gospel of Enough
  • Being Courageously Christian in a Pluralistic World

Hollow Faith will add fuel to the passionate desire that a growing tribe of youth workers have toward embracing a more theologically robust and biblical focused ministry with young people in the North American Christian Church. – Mike King, President of Youthfront

After reading Hollow Faith, you will want to pass it along to your ministry volunteers and pastor.

Stephen Ingram is the “Steve Jobs of the Youth Ministry world.”  I’m hard pressed to recall anyone with the inventiveness and informed creativity of this young man.  His laboratory has been his own ministry, where the principles of this book were formed, week-in and week-out in the rough-and-tumble reality of dancing with the alligators of church work, where simple answers never work. – Mark DeVries, President of Youth Ministry Architects


Stephen Ingram serves as the Director of Student Ministries at Canterbury United Methodist Church in Birmingham, Ala. He has a BA in Religion from Samford University and a Masters of Divinity from McAfee School of Theology in Atlanta. Stephen has worked as a student minister for over 13 years and serves as a consultant with Youth Ministry Architects. He and his wife Mary Liz have three children: Mary Clare, Patrick, and Nora Grace.
