In this episode, Alice is joined by Davis Lacey, a former youth pastor who now leads a young church plant in Ellijay, GA (Autumn Ridge Community Church). Drawing from personal experience, Davis shares how churches which take intergenerational integration seriously are great assets for family discipleship and growing faith in teenagers – even if those churches don’t have formal “youth groups.” Then, he and Alice dive into this week’s questions, including, “Should I force my child to go to youth group?”, “Is it OK for my child to attend another church’s youth group?”, “How can I support my child’s youth leaders while respecting my child’s space?”, and more.
