I’d like to share with you what I’ve been sharing with the youth shepherds and your parents recently. And that is this: there is incredible strength in youth ministry when the church partners with the parents. Not only does this partnership bring strength, it is a MUST if we really want to build a God-honoring youth ministry at SBC.
Adolescence – what all of you are going through right now – is not an easy thing to deal with. Believe me, I’ve been there. I know how many of you feel right now. Some of you may feel misunderstood by your parents and so there tends to be a lot of conflict. Others of you are confused about your own identity and it’s not always easy to communicate this. Being a teenager, especially in today’s world, can be a pretty tough thing!
That is why it is so important that you are part of this youth group. There is strength in numbers and it sure does help a lot when you can go through life with others around you. Your shepherds and I are there to help you along and give you Godly guidance as you go through life’s changes. But don’t forget that your parents are the ones who love and care for you the most! Maybe they don’t understand everything about you, but if there’s one thing they do know, it’s that you mean the world to them. That’s why youth ministry here at SBC is going to be all about the partnership between myself, your shepherds, and your parents. Our goal is to make sure that each of you becomes spiritually mature, loving God and loving others. From here on out, we’re going to be doing much more together, so get used to it!
