About After You Drop Them Off
More and more children and teenagers are becoming involved in church. They find that youth ministries are a safe place to make friends and have fun–and a wonderful way to find spiritual support and insight in a confusing world.
But if you’re a parent of a student in a youth ministry, you may have some questions:

·How can I be more informed, or more involved?
