The Importance of Parents in Youth Ministry

In the past 10 years or so, there has been a healthy reevaluation of how churches do youth ministry. Increasingly, the focus has turned to the importance of parents in the spiritual discipleship of their children. In this helpful seven-minute video posted at The Gospel Coalition, three youth ministers discuss the topic β€œDon’t Outsource Your Kids to Youth Group.” An interesting statistic noted at the beginning of the video states: “Seventy percent of kids who go through youth ministry will not continue with the church after high school.”
