Seeing Hope & Potential in Every Young Person
PARENT LIFE MINISTRY SITES UNIQUELY PRACTICE LOVING RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH THE BALANCED COMBINATION OF THREE RELATIONAL MINISTRY ACTION’S:
Frequent Connections :: We enter the environment of young parents and invite them to connect with peers and loving adults through small group gatherings.
Strategic Relationships :: Through small group and individual mentoring, our ministry teams develop transformational friendships with young parents.
Special Events :: We have fun together! We share life, share meals and spend time learning, laughing and loving.
Parent Life: What & Why?
Approximately 1 million teenagers get pregnant in the United States each year. Parent Life pursues young parents, through community partnerships as well as in middle schools, highs schools and alternative schools in the metropolitan Indianapolis area. Parent Life is a relational ministry that seeks to change the lives of young parents and their children through authentic mentoring relationships with caring adults.
How does it work?
Through creative programming, Parent Life emphasizes making the “next right choice” in relationships, education, parenting and pursuing Jesus to make the most of their circumstances.
Small Groups – Meeting intentionally and regularly with a group of 6 young parents with free childcare and a meal provided
Mentoring - Meeting one-on-one to address the specific needs of one young parent
Educational Workshops/Events - Baby boutique shopping nights, guest speakers who lead parenting or life skills teaching and discussions, and spending time in activities with young parents to build relationships, model parenting and Christ-like behavior
