The average small group leader spends around 40 hours a year with the kids and students they lead. Relatively speaking, that’s not a lot of time. Especially when you consider that a parent spends around 3,000 hours a year with their kid.

What if there was a way to tap into those 3,000 hours? What if you could multiply your 40 hours exponentially? What if you could not only change the trajectory of one life with your 40 hours, but the trajectory of an entire family?

You can—by investing in parents.

When you partner with parents and invest in the 3,000 hours they have with their kids, you’re doing more with less. You’re broadening your reach. You’re maximizing your efforts. And you’re potentially changing the way an entire family experiences community, thinks about the church, and, ultimately, sees God.

When Parents Win is a small group leader’s guide to partnering with parents.
