Make Believe: 5 Things Great Student Pastors Choose to Believe

Ben Crawshaw

Eventually, we lose the ability to make believe.

As we grow up, we’re told to get our heads out of the clouds and to use our brains. But isn’t imagination the very thing that has catapulted us to do great things? It’s put humans in the air, under the sea, and on the moon. It’s led to the invention of guacamole and shoes that last longer and the printing press. Imagination is one of the things that makes us more like God.

Yet the harsh reality of life (and student ministry) has squelched the ability of many student pastors to dream and imagine. That’s where this book comes in. It reminds student pastors of what’s still possible.

In Make Believe: 5 Things Great Student Pastors Choose to Believe, Ben Crawshaw and Kevin Ragsdale unearth five ideas that combine faith and imagination plus practical steps to help leaders turn those beliefs into behaviors with the goal of reinvigorating student pastors’ hearts and ministries.

Imagine it. Do it. Then make yourself believe it. Are you ready to make believe?
