We believe that the influence of a family is always greater than the influence of the church. 

With that in mind, we have created an intentional strategy of connecting our small group leaders to partner with parents. We use the term "partner" for a reason -- because parents and the church need each other. FUSE and WiRED needs to team up with parents because ultimately, they're the biggest influence on a students spirituality. Parents need to team up with FUSE and WiRED because their kids need to see faith in Jesus and missional living modeled from a whole community of believers. We need each other!

We do this by requiring our small group leaders at FUSE and WiRED to introduce themselves and make themselves available for conversation. We also have a system in place for communicating with parents without voiding the trust of students. Parents- if you have not been introduced to your students small group leader, please email Louie below!

We have also set out to provide you with resources to best support your son or daughter in their relationship with Christ. You can check out these resources on the pages to the left.
