If you want to help encourage an authentic faith that lasts for life it is critical that you partner with parents! Parents are our friends in youth ministry and one of the most important things you can do as a small group leader to encourage authentic faith in your students is to partner with their parents!
Just a shout out to www.parentministry.net who have helped me tremendously as I have worked to partner with parents, if you are a youth pastor, check out: www.parentministry.net
