We believe that no matter what, a student’s family (not their church) will always be the biggest influence in their lives. So, doesn’t it make sense for us to partner with the most powerful, influential people in our students’ lives? We use the term “partner” for a reason - because parents and the church need each other. We need to team up with parents because they’re ultimately the biggest influence on their own kids’ spirituality, and parents need to team up with the local church because their kids need to see faith in Jesus and missional living modeled from a whole community of believers! We need each other!
First, we want you to know we welcome your PRESENCE. Our Student Ministries maintains an “open door” policy toward parents. You are welcome to visit one of our programs at any time. We want you to see for yourself what your student is experiencing week to week.
Second, we value your INPUT. Feel free to share your input, concerns, questions, comments, and observations with our staff. We want to partner with you in any way we can.
Third, we encourage your INVOLVEMENT. We are ALWAYS on the lookout for parents who have a special place in their heart for students and are open to joining our Student Ministries Adult Volunteer Staff. The Adult Volunteer Staff helps run events, leads life groups, organize snacks and ministry opportunities, chaperone trips, and more.
