Turn Seminar: For Parents of Teens at New Life Church

Dear Parent,
Thank you for sending you teen each week to New Life. Thank you for dropping them off and picking them up. Thank you for trusting your student to NLC worship leaders, pastors and volunteers. As a parent of four children, I understand the importance of each evening. We are grateful that you trust us to encourage, equip and challenge your son or daughter.

When I was a teenager, my father sculpted a strategy to make disciples of his four children. He possessed a core conviction that he must carry out the great commission by making disciples of his family, city, etc. As a result, I possess a similar conviction. One of the most strategic ways to equip your teenager to be a wholehearted follower of Jesus is to encourage you. Therefore, Desperation Student Ministries will be hosting a “TURN” seminar every few months to serve parents. We aim to assist you in raising remarkable teens by providing an environment for you to connect with other Christian parents, point you to great resources, provide Biblical teaching and keep you updated with the vision of Desperation Student Ministries.

The name “Turn” comes from Malachi 4:6. We hope to see God turn the hearts of parents to students and students to parents. Pastor Brady Boyd will speak at our first seminar on Saturday, May 22nd. We will also worship together and pray for the teens of our church and city. I will share on some upcoming events and groups aimed at effective evangelism and discipleship. We will start at 10am and conclude noon. Join us a little early for a light breakfast and to connect with the Student Ministry staff. Call or email Jeni Mason at 265-3149 or jmason@newlifechurch.org with any questions.

I’m excited about the days ahead. May God give us strength to raise up an army of young men and women that live as fully devoted followers of Jesus.
