For Junior High Parents
Here at MISSION we know that being a parent has its ups and downs, highlights and not-so-highlights, and can be tough from time to time. It is our desire and goal to walk alongside you as a parent to a student. We want to partner with you and help point your student to Jesus. The saying "it takes a village to raise a child" couldn't be more true. We believe that each student needs multiple adults (outside of Mom and Dad) that care for them, encourage them, pray with them, and love them for who they are. We desire to be those adults. We also believe that if a student has those adults in their lives that the likelihood that their faith is more "sticky" increases exponentially.
We have had the privilege of being a part of a program put on by Fuller Youth Institute. We are a part of what is called the "Sticky Faith Cohort". We are thinking about your students spiritual journey from the moment they enter our ministry until long after they exit our ministry. We take very seriously the condition of your students walk with the Lord and we are tackling some tough questions about what it looks like to assist your student in having an authentic faith that will stick long after they exit our High School ministry.
The Sticky Faith organization has a great book out, called "Sticky Faith" (that sounds redundant). It is a great read for all parents and a great way to begin to think about your students faith now.
