This research investigates the issues pertaining to mentoring at-risk youth within the local church through the use of small groups. A case study of a local church's youth ministry was studied for effectiveness in this area. This particular youth ministry was successful in recruiting and developing volunteer mentors for successful at-risk youth mentoring. It struggled in bringing at-risk youth into the church from the community centers, and connecting with at-risk youth's parents. Any person concerned with or involved with mentoring, youth, or at-risk youth would benefit from reading this thesis.
