Why church leaders and not go direclty to teens at schools or other youth groups???
We cannot be in every school or youth group across the Panhandle.
Youth do gather in local churches.
Pastors and youth leaders touch their lives weekly, if not daily.
So, it made sense to us to train those who can touch teens, and parents, across the Panhandle.
HHP is hosting a 2nd Pastor's training today, May 1.
What to say? What not to say?
Is it better to talk to teens alone or with their parents also?
What to do if a teen talks openly with peers aboiut bullying, stresses that may lead to poor decisions by the teen.
How can the school counselor help? What happens if the teen is admitted to the Pavilion at Northwest Hospital?
Today, we do this work not by social media but by face to face learning....the best way indeed.
