We want to start with what God has to say, and God’s intention is that you, as a parent, be the primary spiritual leader of your sons and daughters. God gives practical commands to parents in the Bible:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
Our Youth can do great things. Throughout history, 12-18 year olds have done incredible things. And today, God is calling – just as in the past – to follow Him in obedience. It’s our goal to see that happen. We pray that your family will be blessed as we partner together in “speaking” this same language to your 6th-12th graders.
If at any point you have questions or concerns as you interact with this ministry, please let us know. May God bless you as you follow Him by leading your sons and daughters deeper in their faith.
