It is not always easy raising teenagers. There are many opposing forces that can drag a
teenager away from the most important things in life, specifically Jesus. This can be difficult
for parents to deal with.
The purpose of this Parent Ministry is to encourage parents as they are the primary contact
as they raise up their children. Deuteronomy 6:5-9 outlines the role that parents are to
have in the faith development of their children:
"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 on 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" (NIV).
Twice each month, you will receive an email that touches on varying topics and issues that
you may be going through as a household. This Parent Ministry is not designed to tell you how
to parent, but to encourage you as you are raising your teenagers.
Along with these monthly emails, you as a parent will have access to a wonderful tool called
"Rites of Passage Experiences" (ROPES). Every teenager is going through physical, mental,
emotional, and spiritual changes as they grow up. These ROPES are ways for you as a parent to
deliberately pass along your faith to your teen as you engage together in celebrating milestones
that your teenager will go through each year.
