"It takes a village to raise a child" - Ancient Proverb

Teens gather information that help shape their identity and worldview from many different sources.  We strive to be an encouraging and positive agent of change in students lives by enabling them to CONNECT to God, REACH their friends, GROW in Christ, and SERVE just like Jesus. We hope to come alongside you; their parents as you navigate the adolescent years. We’re here for you: to encourage you, to equip you, pray with you and to challenge you in parenting your student well.

Here you’ll find resources and links to equip you with tools for improving your perspective and communication with your teen.  There are tips on how to connect with your son or daughter and how to engage them with friends who are positive influences.  

We also have books on different topics available to borrow in our office.  Contact Kari Mann for more information.    

Blessings on the journey!
