Course Overview

Both research and experience confirm an undeniable truth: the parents of teenagers have a huge impact on teenagers’ spiritual growth and commitment to Jesus. Search Institute has found that the two primary predictors of a mature faith are “talking about faith with your mother” and “talking about faith with your father.”

Simply put, when the parents of your teenagers grow spiritually, so do the students you serve. It’s smart to invest in those parents—but how? What’s the best way to include and support parents? In this course you’ll gain a fresh perspective and valuable skills for promoting the parents of your teenagers from cooks, bottle washers, and taxi drivers to effective equippers of the faith.
