My New Book The Disconnect

By Doug Franklin February 4, 2011

I have a new book coming out soon dealing with the relationships between youth pastors and their senior pastors. It’s called The Disconnect. As I sat down to write this book, I’ll admit my time as a youth pastor steered much of my thinking about the subject matter. After all, it is my experiences, good and bad, which have shaped the way I’ve served other youth workers for many years. While my experiences have proved effective in the advice I gave to most youth workers, I realized it could not be the only source material I worked from to write this book. To that end, much of what you read throughout this book has come from not only my time as a youth worker, but also from others around me. Through interviews with youth pastors and senior pastors, and multiple surveys, I gathered the needed information to write this book. Many of their stories are retold in my own words throughout the pages of this book.

Check out The Disconnect when it becomes available the first week of March.
