Question:I am interested in beginning a ministry at my church for families of teens to work together to do a variety of mission projects. Currently we offer a family mission trip to an orphanage in Tijuana, but would also like to begin something for parents and teens to serve together in more a variety of ways. Do you have any literature on how to get a program like this going? We are also interested in incoorporating a devotional/ Bible study for teens and parents to do together. Most of the family devotionals I have looked at seem too little kid like for teens. Thank you for any information you can pass along.
