Teenagers, parents and family relationships
Engaging parents into the spiritual lives of their teens is the number one goal of our Youth and Family Ministries.
The Youth/Teenagers of Today are entering into a new era of social media (Twitters. Facebook, Instagram, Webchat etc.), tecnologies and new chalenges.hey are spending more and more time on these than having interactions in their families. Even then, they still need love and support from parents at a time when lots of things are changingin their lives. As your child move into the teenage years, it is important that the family continues to offer the love and support to meet their core emotional needs.
For teenagers, parents and families are a source of care and emotional support. Families give teenagers practical, financial and material help. And most teenagers still want to spend time with their families, sharing ideas and having fun. Your relationship with your teenage child can still be strong through ordinary, everyday activities.
It’s normal for teenagers to be moody or seem uncommunicative at times, but they still need you – they still loves you and wants you to be involved in their life, even though at times the attitude, behaviour or body language might seem to say otherwise.
In all of our churches worldwide, we have come to believe that it is time to build up a new generation of youths; teaching, correcting, rebuking and training them into adults whom are thouroughly equipped for every good works of righteousness (2 Tim 3:16-17)
Through the Family-Youth interaction events, we hope to engage parents to be involved with both the spiritual and emotional life of our your children.
