"Developing the leader within you 2.0" by author John Maxwell. If you enjoy reading and want to be challenged and encouraged in your leadership this book is a worth while read.
"Your first two years in youth ministry" by Doug Fields is another great read. With helpful insight from not only Doug fields, but other youth leaders. He shares his struggles, insights and experiences. He keeps it real with examples and how it can have it's ups and downs, but it is encouraging. A great book to do as a team as it has questions and reflections at the end. The Alpha Youth team have used this for training and found it very useful.
