Step 3: Help Parents LeadSTEP 3: HELP PARENTS LEAD (Ministry to Parents Roadmap)

If you’ve read our last three blog posts, you know that we’ve been writing about the Ministry to Parents Road Map. The road map outlines the 4 steps to building a ministry to parents at your church (see below).

  1. BUILD A PARENT MINISTRY PLAN 
  2. ENCOURAGE PARENTS 
  3. HELP PARENTS LEAD
  4. CARE FOR YOUR SOUL

Each step along this journey will help you and your church multiply your ministry efforts by leveraging the powerful influence of parents. For today’s blog post we’re going to focus on: STEP 3: HELP PARENTS LEAD.

Parents are the most significant spiritual influence in the lives of their kids, and the students you serve spend the majority of their time at home with their parents. So we pose the question:

What if Churches trained parents in how to disciple their kids?

Parents are often told they should lead their kids, but they are afraid or feel ill-equipped. What if parents were given the tools to do the job? If so, then the greatest influencers who spend the most time around our students become the primary source of spiritual encouragement.

Think of the possibilities. We get excited just dreaming about it!

To help Directors and Ministers start and strengthen a parent ministry, we offer content to help parents lead kids in four areas:

  • RELATIONSHIP
  • BIBLICAL TEACHING
  • WHOLE-HEARTED LIVING
  • PRAYER

We believe it takes four steps to build a ministry to parents in your church. Click HERE to see the last and final step.

As always, it is our pleasure to partner with you.
