Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry
Authors: Jim Burns & Mark DeVries
The most powerful force in a young person’s life is his or her family – and the importance of this is pointed out in the writing of the Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9), where believers are mandated to pass their family legacies to the next generations. The newest trend in youth ministry today is a very healthy move toward family based ministry-a mindset that helps the Church act as a support system, while placing discipleship and training back into the hands of family. Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry will help youthworkers understand their unique role in helping families succeed, and will give an overview strategy of family based youth ministry, as well as practical ideas on implementing this awesome ministry in your church.
