One of my colleagues and friends in youth ministry, John Vest, wrote this great blog post about the importance of parents in faith development in the lives of teens. There is no greater influence on faith and faith development than parents. John writes, "Faith formation and spiritual development must happen at home. It’s not even a matter of making sure that these things are reinforced at home—family homes (especially in our post-Christendom world) must become the primary locus of faith formation."
