Engaging Student’s Parents & Households with Dan Istvanik | SMC Podcast | Episode 091

Feb 16, 2023 | Administration, Community, Discipleship, Evangelism, Family, Parent Ministry, Planning, Podcast, Relationships, Student Ministry, Vision & Mission, Youth Ministry

While the students in our ministry are one of our main focuses, reaching the parents or the household that the student lives with is just as important to the development of the student. How do we effectively reach out to the families of the students in our ministry? How do we reach out and get the households engaged in the student ministry at home as well as in a volunteer basis at church?

Come join the conversation as Brent sits down with Dan Istvanik, the family pastor at Avenue Christian Church in Darrien, Illinois, as they talk about the challenge of getting household involvement and how that can benefit the student and your student ministry.

We would also love to have you join the conversation if you would like to be on the show! Shoot us a message on social media (@talkstudentmin) or an email ( to get a time set for you to be on the show.
