Parent Corner:

  • We have just finished our study on Forgotten God by Francis Chan. We believe this was an eye-opening study that has brought to the surface our need to be more dependent on the Holy Spirit. We encourage you to have follow up conversations with your student in regards to the Spirit and what they have learned.
  • Yesterday we began our study on Radical by David Platt. This study brings to the light our need to be bold in our pursuit of Christ. The need to live as He lived in this broken world. We have intentionally paired Radical with Forgotten God so students are able to analyze the Holy Spirit first (Forgotten God) then see where it leads them (Radical).
  • A few questions that you could ask your students this week following our first study:
    • What does it mean to live radically for Christ?
    • Do you feel like the Holy Spirit is calling you to be active in any way in your school/home?
    • What are some ways that you feel that Brentwood Hills Student Ministry could encourage living more boldly for Christ?


  • 30 Day Dad Challenge  from AllProDad.com - 30 ways, in 30 days, to be the best dad you can be. For each day of the month, find the corresponding number and follow the tip.
