For the last five years or so, our church has embraced the idea that we, as a church, need to partner with parents in order to make a lasting spiritual impact on students’ lives. But… we were a little stuck on how to actually put that idea into practice. We believed in it. We just weren’t sure how to translate it into our ministry context.
But we were determined to make this parent partnership thing happen so, a couple of years ago, we decided it was time to just try something.
Here’s what we came up with…
As we explain in the video, the feedback we received from this Breakfast (and from the Breakfasts we’ve had since then) really blew us away. We couldn’t believe the positive response we received, from both parents and Small Group Leaders. Parents jumped at the chance to talk to their kids’ Small Group Leaders. It refocused and reenergized our team and was the catalyst to beginning a huge wave of partnership and connection with parents.
The event itself was pretty straight-forward…
And then, for a full hour (actually, more than that – it was hard to get people to go home!) parents and Small Group Leaders just… talked. They got to know each other. They talked about their kids. They brainstormed ways they could partner together. They planned get-togethers and service projects for their students. Parents shared their concerns and struggles. Small Group Leaders gained lots of valuable information about their students that they didn’t know before. And, at the end of the morning, both parents and Small Group Leaders saw what it could be like to work together for the sake of the kids they were both trying to influence.
