JIM WIDEMAN: "These helpful resources were created by people who have actually worked in a church, and it fits alongside any curriculum you are using. Parents need to know what to do. Parent Ministry shows them year by year, step-by-step and they make your church the hero. I highly recommend it for any size church."
WILL PARENTS IN MY MINISTRY ACTUALLY USE THESE RESOURCES?
We’ve designed our resources to inspire parents to try leading their teenager spiritually. We offer parents an opportunity rather than a guilt trip when it comes to being involved in the faith development of their student. We’ve learned that parents are still trying to figure out their own relationship with God, so it’s easy for them to opt out of discussing faith with their kids. Attacking this fear with inspiration is the heart behind our resources. So, YES, we believe that parents will use these resources, and families will begin to change when they start talking about faith at home.
CAN I MAKE COPIES OF THESE RESOURCES AND HAND THEM OUT TO PARENTS IN MY CHURCH?
Yes! Actually, that is the point of all these resources. You give them to parents.
WHAT ABOUT PARENTS WHO DON'T GO TO OUR CHURCH? WILL THESE RESOURCES HELP THEM?
Many of these resources are intended to help with issues in the home like navigating technology, planning for developmental transitions, and facing the struggles that teenagers deal with. This offers very real help to these parents that build trust and relationship with parents who don’t go to your church. In fact, Parent Ministry has the potential to be one of your best outreach ministries.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A "LIFETIME LICENCE TO DISTRIBUTE IN YOUR CHURCH"?
It means that you can print these resources and hand them out to parents in your ministry. You can attach the resources to an email and send them to the parents in your church. You can show the videos on the screens in your church. You can use the material as part of your lessons or parent seminars that you offer in your church. All we ask is that if your ministry friend in another church wants to use the resources, you show them how to purchase them for their church from ministrytoparents.com.
CAN I SHARE THE RESOURCES ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
We would love for you to post these resources on your church website and share the links to that site on social media. All we ask is that posted content comes from your church's account, so that it honors our policy of keeping the content within your church’s ministry setting.
CAN I POST THE VIDEOS FROM THE BUNDLE ON YOUTUBE, VIMEO OR SOME OTHER STREAMING SERVICE?
We ask that when you download our videos for use in your church that you don’t upload them publicly on youtube or vimeo or any other streaming service. You are very encouraged to embed the videos on your church website. Just please avoid uploading videos with public access on youtube, vimeo, and other streaming services. Our customers operate with amazing integrity and we don’t have any issues with this, but if for some reason you have questions you can email email@example.com for clarification.
If you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase, we'll give you a complete refund up to 30 days after your purchase. Now, that's an awesome promise :) Think about it. You have nothing to lose.
