Some student pastors would rather have back to back to back middle school lock-ins than recruit parents to help with the student ministry. Other swear that parents are the best volunteers they have!

I fall into the second category and try to tackle why in this episode. Don’t neglect to recruit from the pool of people who are the most invested and committed to your student ministry.

    Why some student pastors don’t like to ask parents to help My journey from thinking of parents as hostile to thinking of them as fantastic helpers! What to do with parents who aren’t invested in the student ministry Making things less awkward with parents in the room Recruiting parents as small group leaders

Sound quality was not great for this episode. Sorry! The mic was not plugged in when I thought it was supposed to be.
