Connecting with parents is the first effort in partnering with parents in student ministry, which is why the connection process is so instrumental. Student ministry leaders have to find ways to connect with parents in small daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly steps. And the greatest way to connect is to communicate with them through your student ministry website.
So we researched the best student ministries across the country who have great parent sections on their student ministry website. Here were the top 4 we came across:
(4) Student Ministry at Newspring Church — Wichita, KS: https://www.newspring.org/where-you-fit-in/high-school/parents/
(3) Middle School Ministry at North Point Community Church — Alpharetta, GA: https://transitstudents.org/2010/11/parents/
(2) Student Ministry at Eastern Hills Church — Buffalo, NY — https://www.easternhillschurch.org/648523.ihtml
(1) Student Ministry at Fellowship Bible Church — Nashville, TN — https://www.fellowshipnashville.org/students/parents/
The great thing about these 4 website is that they do three things: inform, equip and encourage parents.
So do you have a parent section on your student ministry website? and did we miss any other great student ministry website that do a great job connecting with parents?
