Reggie Joiner Parents Baby Steps
Last week I got to spend 24 hours with the great leadership team of reThink in Atlanta, Georgia. I first met Reggie Joiner last fall and we had a great connection.
With Reggies team, we had a great discussion about how to best engage with parents. The reality is that parents are the primary influence on their kids far more influential than church leaders. And yet the last thing parents need is to be motivated by a sense of guilt or a long to do list of all the behaviors they should be doing that feels overwhelming. It feels overwhelming because it is overwhelming.
Reggie gave me the new book he co-authored with Carey Nieuwhof called Parenting Beyond Your Capacity. I love their definition of spiritual leadership for parents: Spiritual leadership means parents assume the primary responsibility to help their kids take the next step in their pursuit of a relationship with God.
Its one step forward.
That reminds me of an invitation at our church that weve extended help one person who doesnt know Jesus yet take one step closer to Him.
I love that focus on one step forward. Its so do-able and motivating, while not being overwhelming.
