I’d also think about having guest speakers come in to help the parents deal with the challenges of raising their youth in today’s world. This world is ever changing; the parents and church needs to be on the cutting edge of these changes.
Set up seminars for expecting parents. Help them come to some style of parenting that both agree to. That will fit their life style, bringing compromise from both the expecting Mother and Father. That way they will not be divided and they will stand as one. Have fathers come in and teach them their spiritual role in the household. Men need to understand that God has placed them as the head of the household not his wife. Fathers need to realize that they are more than just breadwinners; they’re to lead their families. Joshua 24:15
Now bring in your church staff. As a minister I’m sure you’ve seen or you will see that by the time the youth reach junior high they have already made up their minds on what path they’ll take. The world has been pulling on them since the first time they stepped into pre-school. Your going to need to teach your church school / kids church workers the importance of the ministry their involved in. Search out those who are truly called into the ministry and weed out those who just mean well.
Now it’s great asking for advice and as a fellow minister I believe God does speak through others to answer our questions. I don’t want to be a thread killer. If God has laid this on your heart, my advice above any other is to pray and seek the vision God has in store for your ministry. Pray until He has given it to you. God has a special vision just for your ministry unlike any other. It will be totally completely yours; it will fit your personality and ministry style. If you try to copy some one else’s ministry it will take off at first then it will die a slow agonizing death.
