We value you and the position that God has given you in spiritually discipling your teenager. As a student ministry, we are here to partner with you in discipling your student. We offer several programs and activities for your student to know Christ as their Lord and Savior, grow to love Him and His Word, and share His story of redemption daily. The Parkway Studentz Ministry is here as a reinforcing resource to what God is already doing through your family and the life of your student.
We want to be more strategic in growing this partnership in a variety of ways. Please pray about how God can use you in the following ways to partner with us as we seek to reach, baptize, and disciple more students for Jesus:
Prayer - Please pray for our different programs and activities. Everything we do is purposeful in reaching, growing, connecting, and sending students in Jesusʼ name. Pray for God to move and stir in the lives of students during these purposeful programs and events. We have a parent prayer group that meets in the prayer room during our TWO:four program on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month. Prayer is foundational to all that we do and we need you praying for us and our students.
Preparation - About 4 times a year we will be having targeted training and discussion times for parents. This will not be your typical “parent meeting.” We are calling these “Parent Sessions.” During this time, we will have a short training directed toward discipleship, parenting, student culture, etc. Then we will have open discussion and dialogue about some of the things that you as parents are facing in your families. This will be a great time of training and connecting for parents and we are excited to see what God does through these sessions.
Participation - One of the biggest ways you can partner with us is by serving with us! We are always looking for parents to serve by helping us out with Bible studies, TWO:four, activities, retreats, IWC, M-FUGE, and more. Statistics show us that if a student does not have at least 3-5 signiﬁcant adult relationships (outside of their parents and student pastor) by the time they graduate high school, it is more likely that they will stop being involved with a local church once they graduate. Students crave signiﬁcant adult relationships in their lives and by serving with us, God can use you in a mighty way to change a studentʼs life.
We hope you will consider partnering with us by praying, preparing, and participating with us and be a part of what God is doing in and through the Parkway Studentz Ministry!
