Offer parent training experiences in the life of the church through seminars, small groups, parenting library, websites and blogs, and one-on-one discipleship and counseling.
1 • The premise in Component 2 is that, if we don't reach the parents, then we can't do an effective job with the children.
2 • Parents need help today and the Bible has much to say about relationships, emotions, and other issues that can help them as they work with their kids.
3 • Parents often need models of parenting to be effective. The church is a great place to receive teaching.
Where to go from here:
Move parents from learning about their children and youth, to learning with them, by planning special events that bring all generations together. Begin encouraging all ministry leaders to understand and welcome the value of family ministry. Teach parents how to disciple their children and youth at home.
