52 tweetable text messages to encourage & inspire parents.


You probably didn't go into youth ministry to focus on parents. In fact, sometimes we look at them as a hurdle to what we are trying to accomplish. Yet, there is no escaping the fact that they are an integral part of what we do and how we do it. Sometimes the best way to minister to your teens is by ministering to their parents. Allow these texts to serve as encouragement and coaching to them. Many of these are seasonal: first week of school, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mothers’ Day, etc… Like a great DYM-product… it’s done for you. This is a great deal!

1. Load them into your social media feed. It may be a Facebook group or page. It may be Twitter feed. All are Twitter-friendly at 140 characters or under. Set them up for scheduled posts throughout the school year.

2. Build a group text message on your iPhone and send them out from there. In the process, you will likely get responses back that can generate some discussion and further ministry opportunities.

3. Load them in and schedule them out on your ministry’s texting system.
