Practical Wisdom for Youth Group Parents 

Dr. Walter Surdacki (Lipscomb Professor of Bible) and Dr. David Fraze
Leafwood Publishers, 2022

Practical Wisdom for Parents is not a book about how to make your teens sit down and have a family devotional. Instead, this book will help you and your teen thrive and flourish during these important years.

The authors give numerous practical suggestions on how you can work alongside and support those leading your youth ministry, including a variety of ways you can support and be involved in your teen's youth ministry experience. Many of their ideas are “behind the scenes” that don’t require you to teach a class or lead a devotional. However, your partnership role with your youth ministry leadership will be clearly articulated throughout.

Surdacki teaches various youth ministry and practical ministry courses at Lipscomb. He has served in full time ministry for more than 16 years.
