Parent Resources

There are approximately 364 weeks from the time a student enters 6th grade until graduation, and moves on to whatever’s next. But each week in the life of a teenager is unique. They are constantly changing, going from phase to phase, season to season. And yet, we believe there is immeasurable potential tucked away in these early years of a person’s life. Rather than simply enduring these changes, we want to support you, as parents, along this timeline so you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence your student’s future.

Parent Cue Podcast

Whether you’re dealing with a teething baby or a high schooler who won’t say a single word, you can identify with the challenges of parenthood.  As a parent, you have the tremendous task of instilling your kids with a moral compass to guide them through the rest of their lives.  With such an important responsibility, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed at times.

Parent Cue is a podcast designed to help parents do family better.  By combining influences, parents, and church leaders can understand how to accomplish more for the spiritual well-being of a child than either could individually.

The Parent Cue Podcast is available for download through iTunes and other music services or at PARENT CUE PODCAST.
