Stats don’t lie
Here at UCAYouth we enjoy the privilege of having time to read. We’ve covered lots of ministry books in the library segment of Work Experience Podcast, but we also enjoy the opportunity to review the latest research from across the world. Below are a few pieces we’ve found enormously helpful, and we’d recommend you have a look at them.
If you’d like to discuss how these can shape your local ministries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
