Happy New Year! We can’t wait to get started on a new year of ministry with you and your teenager.
Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: RETREAT
Next month, we’re planning a weekend retreat designed to help your kid connect with God and with their small group. Get the details on our website!
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: MISSION EXPERIENCE
This summer, we’re taking teenagers on a mission experience! Make sure your kid is registered before the deadline.
INFLUENCER: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON WISDOM
Whether it’s Instagram, YouTube, TV, or movies, we are constantly surrounded by “influencers.” But in reality, we are all influencers because we all influence others in some way, whether we mean to or not. We’re all already influencers, but the question is, “What kind of influencers will we be?” In this 4-week series, we’ll learn from a few key influencers in the Bible about what real influencers are like. They’re humble (not arrogant), chase good (not evil), live small (and dream big), and tell God’s story (not just their own).
Do you ever have one of those days when you wonder, “Is this really working? Am I making a difference in my kid’s life? Is anything I’m saying sinking in?” Of course you do. And the answer is yes. Even on the difficult days, you are influencing your kid in profound ways. Don’t forget it!
If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #6 from your Parents section.
Ever noticed how impulsive, risky, and (let’s face it) kind of dumb teenagers can be sometimes? Yeah, so have we. That’s why we love the book (or audiobook) Born to Be Wild: Why Teens Take Risks and How We Can Keep Them Safe. This book is incredible. Grab a copy.
