There were many great things he had to say about how as a youth ministry we can and should be helping our families invest into their kids. One of the main things I caught was the idea of how it takes about five committed adults for every one student; parents, Youth Pastor and small group leaders to name a few. But it's not enough if they are all not working together to help shape and disciple the student.
I want to let our parents know that we, Veritas and our entire church, are here to help raise our kids. I know as a dad that if I can have other committed adults teaching, encouraging and loving on my girls then they will be better off in the long run. My hope is to do some more listening and learning on how we can best invest into the youth at Veritas. You are all doing a fantastic job and I love spending time with your kids. I am looking forward to what's to come.
