It Happens is full of “True Tales from the Trenches of Youth Ministry.” We have collected stories from youth workers across the county because we want you to know that you are not alone, so that you can learn from their mistakes, and so you can be prepared when IT happens to you! This book does not contain emergency response information, but instead amidst the 30 stories in this book, you will find the stuff that happens every day, how we dealt with it, and what we learned. You’ll read about:
  • Bart Campolo’s tale of dealing with the backlash from a student’s sexting mistake
  • Hank Hilliard’s recounting of parents encouraging underage drinking
  • Karen Jones’ dilemma of whether or not to send a kid home
  • Amy Jacober’s story about being stranded in a snowstorm
  • Kelly Soifer’s account of visiting the ER with a student while at camp
  • Steve Argue’s story of the over-involved helicopter parents
  • Mark Montgomery’s cautionary tale of when volunteers date kids
  • Sally Chambers’ recounting of the youth minister witch hunt
  • Kenda Creasy Dean’s story of interviewing for a pastoral position…while pregnant
