My goal is to continue to work WITH you in helping your teen to grow spiritually, socially and emotionally. Please find the “Parents of EDGE Student Ministry” group on Facebook—a place where we can share and collaborate! I don’t profess to be an expert in parenting, and what I do know wouldn’t classify as the type of experience that you already have. However, sometimes it is nice to get an “outside perspective “ or even a fresh look at what is working and what isn’t working in today’s culture. Culture greatly influences our teens today. We must ask ourselves, in what ways? The only way to overcome negative pressure is to understand it and have the tools to combat it. Throughout these issues, and on the Parents FB page, I plan on giving us tools to both understand the effects of youth culture on our teens, but also tools to combat it. Stay tuned!

I want to express deep thanks to all of the parents of our EDGE students for all that you contribute to this ministry. Every month (or hopefully more often than that) I will strive to maintain a PARENT’S CORNER where I will keep you up to date on current youth culture and how we can work together to help your teens grow spiritually and emotionally.
First—I want you to know that I am committed to helping your teen to develop into the person God intends them to be. However, I know that I can’t do that alone. I NEED YOU! Together we can help raise Godly teens for our next generation of leaders. Please don't ever hesitate to call or e-mail me regarding your teen. I'm always available to you.
With that said, please visit the following link, a resource for you to find information on current youth culture that affects your teen—you may even be surprised:
