What questions do you ask families with teens when visiting with them for the first time?
I'm planning family visits this summer with families who have children in jr. high because I'm starting a jr. high youth ministry this year. What should I ask? I already have the contact sheet--but how to word questions about what they need from the ministry? and how I can best support them?

If they have a lengthy inventory sheet of things they need from the ministry, then it becomes more like a checklist. And we all know what happens when people are convinced that the perfect church exists out there somewhere, right? So, I would share your vision and ask them to help implement it. The idea of an advocate is someone who comes alongside someone else. Make that your mindset in meeting with them.
