In today’s day and age there are more pieces of the puzzle that parents and guardians need to know about where their youth is going, what their youth is doing, and with whom is their youth spending their time with. We understand this need and would like to support you with the difficulty of getting all of the answers to your questions. Never hesitate to contact Josh or any member of the church leadership team with concerns, questions, or requests.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite parents and guardians to come be like wall paper in any of our teaching events. Observe for yourselves what and how your student is learning. Please talk with your youth before visiting so they are not surprised by your visit. We encourage you to ask your youth about what they are hearing at youth events. We will also be encouraging them to continue the discussions we begin at events once they are home with you and their siblings.
While your youth is participating in a Living Hope Community Church youth event, their well-being is one of our greatest concerns. First and foremost we strive to offer a safe place for them to listen, speak their own ideas, and interact with other students and caring adults.
We will do our best to have a 7 to 1, youth to adult ratio at all youth events. Adult youth workers will be responsible for welcoming, encouraging, and supervising your youth while they are participating in youth events.
Screening Adult Workers
All of our youth ministry workers who interact directly with your youth go through a screening process. To the best of our knowledge every single Living Hope Community Church youth ministry worker can be trusted. We will not allow a potentially harmful adult to serve with the youth ministry.
We have two main rules at all youth events: have fun well and listen well. We believe there is an appropriate time for both. We will instruct every youth thoroughly of these expectations so there won’t be confusion. If a youth refuses to follow the rules after three warnings in a row we will lovingly ask them to go home from the event so the environment remains safe for the rest of the youth who would like to participate.
Any destructive behavior involving a youth on or off church property will be kindly shared with their parent, either by the youth involved or by an adult youth ministry worker, because the youth in the ministry are considered by law to be minors.
The website and Facebook pages are the best places to get all of the latest information on upcoming events, current studies, and youth ministry news. If you would ever like more information, don't hesitate to contact Josh.
