Maximize Your Student’s Church Experience
More and more children and teenagers are becoming involved in church. They find that youth ministries are a safe place to make friends and have fun–and a wonderful way to find spiritual support and insight in a confusing world.
But if you’re a parent of a student in a youth ministry, you may have some questions:
·What actually goes on in group meetings?
·How trustworthy are the leaders?
·How can I be more informed, or more involved?
·What if I disagree with a leader?
·How can I support the leaders more effectively?
·How can I help make my student’s experience with church as powerful and positive as possible?
In After You Drop Them Off, youth leader and author Jeramy Clark provides trustworthy answers to your questions, along with practical suggestions, biblical support, and “real-life” parents’ comments and stories.
