If you’ve ever been boycotted for being a girl, pumped breast milk on a church bus, gotten fat from eating too much pizza, or wondered if women really can do youth ministry (even when they get old)…

Whether you’re a single or married female in youth ministry, with or without kids…
Whether you’re a part-time, full-time, or volunteer youth worker…
If you’re serving in a tiny church or a ginormous church…
Or even if you’re a guy who wonders how he can better partner with women in youth ministry…

A Woman in Youth Ministry is for you.

This book is full of stories and rants and blessings and cone-of-silence honesty. Gina Abbas is a storyteller, a listening ear, and an honest coach. She pulls no punches and bares her deepest pain and joy. And—over and over again—Gina provides encouragement and practical help for youth ministry leaders who sometimes feel like they’re going it alone.

  1. Heather Lea Campbell

    Few tackle the task of writing a practical book on being a woman in ministry, but Gina has succeeded! Gina talks about REAL topics in a way few are bold enough to address. She also is resourced–there’s a lot of links and notes on other articles, as well as contributions from real women in ministry (like me!). I also loved the questions for reflection, and you definitely learn more about yourself as you read. Best book for women youth pastors out there–and trust me, I’ve looked!

  2. Elle Campbell

    I flew through this book. Gina has such a talent for balancing compelling stories with practical advice and insight, which is probably why she’s not only a gifted writer, but a gifted youth pastor, too. It’s not always easy to be a woman in youth ministry, but reading this book, hearing Gina’s story, hurting with her, and laughing with her, too… it was refreshing. If you’ve ever felt frustrated, misunderstood, beat up, or a little bit alone as a woman in youth ministry, grab this book. Gina gets you. And she likes you. And she’ll teach you a ton.
