Top 10 Things Parents Value About Your Children’s Ministry

The top-10 things parents value about your children’s ministry, from exclusive Children’s Ministry Magazine research.


10 Things Parents Value About Your Children’s Ministry

1. Safe and Fun Environment

Parents’ first question for kids after class or a program is “Did you have fun?” but rest assured that their #1 concern is that their child is safe in your care.

2. Spiritual Growth Opportunities

Make no mistake: Parents want their kids to grow closer to Jesus in your ministry.

3. Age-Appropriate Materials

Parents trust you to determine what that is, but they understand the importance of this.

4. Relationships With Other Kids

This is especially true in areas where kids don’t attend school together. Parents want their kids to have friends who share their values and church is a great place for that.

5. Consistency in Teachers

It’s comforting to parents to see the same faces week after week–because it makes it easier for their children.

6. Service Opportunities

Parents today highly value their children serving and growing in character by giving.

7. Family Events

In our research, this is the number one way children’s ministers define their “family ministry.”

8. Celebrating Faith Milestones

Parents appreciate training and celebration surrounding key faith milestones in their children’s life.

9. Social Events

Parents want to have fun with other families at church.

10. Parent Seminars

That’s right: #10. Meaning, they probably won’t attend that often, but they see it’s value.
