I’m sometimes amazed how many youth ministries don’t involve parents.
“The kids don’t like having them around.”
“Parents just get in the way.”
Think about this for a moment. The students you see an hour or two each week have been raised since infancy by two (sometimes one) adults who probably have had the biggest impact on their lives… and probably still do. You can either partner with these adults—Mom and Dad—or you can try ignore this truth and further contribute to our society’s efforts to divide youth culture and adults.
Which are you? The church… or MTV?
