For parents

In Deuteronomy 6:4-8, God challenges parents to “impress” upon their children to love and honor God above all. This means much more than dropping them off at youth group on Sunday morning—it means parents have the unique privilege and challenge of sharing Christ with their children and teaching them what it means to live a life honoring Him. God’s design for parents, even above Student Community, is to be the primary disciplers of teenagers. We want to come along side you in your striving to accomplish that.

I am honored to partner with you in disciplining our students. My wife Joy and I have 3 children. We have been serving in full-time youth ministry for over 16 years now and loving it! My hope in our Student Ministry is to develop fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. One of our most effective ways of accomplishing this is to partner with you in prayer for our students. I invite you to join us as we seek to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

For more information about joining us in prayer or if you have other questions please email me at msvatek@gracechapel.org.
