Youth Ministry and The Family

Families don't exist to build better youth ministries; 
youth ministries exist to help families be better families.

Some Questions for Consideration for Youth/Children's Ministry Workers:
  • As you look at your calendar, are you asking families to revolve around your schedule, or are you seeking to create your calendar around families?
  • What events are you doing that are designed specifically to better connect kids with their parents?
  • Are there one or two events a year that you could tweak just a little bit and move them from events that separates parents and kids to events that actually bring them together?
  • How are you actively communicating with parents on a regular basis?
  • How are you soliciting feedback from parents?
  • How are you encouraging kids in terms of their relationships with their parents?
  • How are you equipping parents to be better parents?
