Equipping Parents to Help Parents

One of things that we as youth ministers often have to do is counsel parents and their teens when problems come up. We’re the “Resident Expert” in all things teen at the church, so obviously we have all the answers, right? Of course an unmarried 23 year old who up until 5 months ago lived […]

Planning a parents meeting

How to meet the parents. Wait a minute…not THAT Meet the Parents! If you are in ministry more than 2 minutes, you hopefully will have seen the importance of meeting with parents.

Planning an awesome 5th Quarter

In many parts of the country, Friday nights are local holidays. You’ll see the lights of the high school football stadiums for miles around that draw young and old. It is less about football, and more about community. Friday nights become celebrations.  One way to piggy back of the local celebration is to host a […]

Book Review – “Teaching Teenagers in a Post-Christian World”

We’ve all had that feeling after youth group – has anyone heard a word I just said? I’ve spent years teaching teens, but I wonder how much what I’ve said has actually sunk in. Author Jake Kircher addresses this very feeling in his book, “Teaching Teenagers in a Post-Christian World.” This book is presented as […]
