This article considers the discipline of Biblical exegesis and its potential as a tool for both the academic study and practical outworking of youth ministry. I argue that theological method within youth ministry does not incorporate an effective use of biblical exegesis and this is of determinant to the overalLproject of studying the context and content of youth ministry. The article presents a pattern of reading a/Young Testament' (narratives that inform a rich biblical account of the experience of youth and the part youths play in the overarching story of God). The author provides two worked examples of how biblical exegesis can provide both rigor and resources to complement data and theory drawn from the insights of practical theology. The piece ends with some reflections on the potential of exegetical work in relation to the authors own experience of practice.
