Getting Parents Involved in Youth Ministry
Show Notes

How do we get parents more involved and connected to our youth ministry?  Sometimes parents seem like strangers in a car that drop off and pick up their students for youth group.  Are you are looking to just increase communication and ministry awareness with parents?  Are you trying to get parents to be more actively involved in helping with your youth ministry on a Sunday or a midweek program day? Or maybe, as a youth director, are you are just flat out afraid of parents?? 

Today, we take a look at 8 different ways that we can increase the engagement of parents in student ministry.  Some of the topics we cover in this episode are: Having parents as small group leaders, communication with parents, having parents drive for you to events, security - medical - parking teams, donation sign ups, the golden hour of youth group and church and hosting events.  Having parental support in your ministry is game changing, so making sure that parents are actively involved in our ministry can take student participation to the next level.  Don't neglect parents - youth pastors don't just minister to youth, they should be ministering to the whole family!
