  The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU) is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. All kinds of great resources for parents are available here.

A great way to understand teens today and what they're going through. We ask all of our leaders to read this book and think it will help you too to gain a greater understanding of youth and youth culture today! Purchase it here.

It'll help you understand better why we do what we do and how we can work together.


As a youth ministry, we want to be a great partner to you and your family. Please feel free to contact us to talk about that process. We are honored to serve with you in helping your teens know God.
