Youth Ministry Mission Trip FREEBIE: Helping Parents Connect

helping-parents-connectAll programs and trips have short comings in youth ministry and one of them for student mission trips is that parents are not involved. Mission trips are better when parents work hand and hand with youth workers. In Helping Parents Connect, Doug Franklin outlines how parents can be involved in their students’ mission trips before, during, and after the trip. This tool is designed to get you involved from the beginning and to help parents grow with your kids through this experience.

Part 4: FREE Training Video: Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry – Dealing with Angry Parents

I remember the first time a parent called and yelled at me.  No I mean literally,  came through the phone and almost strangled me.  It threw me off guard and I had no real idea on how to respond.  This video walks us through the process of how to deal well with that angry parent and how to reach out to them with integrity.

Here’s our final video this week. To check out the rest of these videos and more, go to our


 

Talking to Angry Parents Discussion Notes

  • How can your team get involved with talking to parents when they get angry?

Part 3: FREE Training Videos: Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry – Conversations…

Our post today involves two videos.  For some of us having a conversation with parents is easy.  However,  if you have students who come and their parents do not attend your church,  have you thought about how to start a relationship with parents?  Sure “cold” communication is easy.  Send an email, or have a passing conversation asking a parent for something gets us what we need.  However, if we are genuinely having a “partnering” mentality we are opening the conversation to ask the parent what THEY need.  Even if these conversation ideas seem simple to you, take the time to share them with your team.  I have found,  training my team,  is often reminding them of simplicity they already know.

Take the time to wrestle with ideas of how to open dialogue with EVERY parent in your group.  While both videos start the same, they do have a slightly different piece of information. Watch them with your team and use them as a training opportunity. It’s our gift free to you!


 

Here’s the second video: 


First Conversations WIth Parent Discussion Notes (click here)
  • Who is one parent you have never talked with you could reach out to this week?
  • How are some ways your whole team can start talking to parents in your group?
  • How can you have an attitude of partnering with all parents?  How could that happen?

FREE Training Video – Part 2: Partnering with Parents in Youth Ministry

In our previous post, I gave my first thoughts in thinking about youth ministry paradigm differently when partnering with parents. Today, we look at what it truly means to care about the family as God cares about the family… After the video is a downloadable worksheet for you and / or your team to work through. There’s also some questions below the video too.

What Lance Armstrong Can Teach Students In Your Youth Ministry: A Free Lesson Outline

Are any of us really that shocked about Lance Armstrong’s admission to Oprah and the world? But what can we teach students from this? Is it that no leader, sports personality, or authority figure can be honest these days? Frankly, I think that is what many of our students are learning in this current generation…

So, how can we take this latest admission and turn it around for our the students in our ministries? Below are some thoughts and perhaps a starting place for us. Feel free to add to the conversation at the end of this post. You might even want to use this as an outline for a message?
