									                                       Parent’s Meeting Agenda

Parent’s meetings are essential if a youth ministry intends to develop a partnership between parents
and youth leaders. Parent’s meetings should a regular occurrence (once quarterly or two times per year
is ideal.) At each parent meeting plan for the meeting to start on time and end on time. Provide
refreshments, a reward or drawing of some sort ($50 off the next youth retreat/trip, or an IPOD or a gift
certificate to a popular youth clothing store.)

I’ve included below a potential agenda. The “topical” section should be something that is general unless
you are bringing in an expert. I would suggest that if you’re bringing in a parent’s ministry speaker, that
you do that separate from your regularly scheduled parent meeting.
