The staff and volunteers make life a little richer for parents of Willow Creek’s children and students

“As parents, we worry about those roller coaster teen years. We all know how goofy our teen sons or daughters can be—it’s in their job description! Yet, these volunteers and staff members choose to invest in our kids, and it makes raising a teen that much easier. Take advantage of it, parents!”
Scott Rubin, Director of Student Ministries  at Willow South Barrington

Teenagers are looking for purpose, challenge, and direction

“They are surprisingly open and attentive to the Holy Spirit’s guidance in their lives. And when parents partner with Willow’s student ministries, the impact on kids’ lives is exponentially deeper.”
Scott Rubin, Director of Student Ministries  at Willow South Barrington

“Parents think their teens only listen to peers, but it’s not true. I hear it all the time from our students: ‘I was really impacted by what my mom or dad said.’ Our job in student ministries is to partner with parents and watch God work in their kids’ lives.”
Scott Woods, Community Life Director of Student Impact, at Willow South Barrington

We believe your kids can change this world—and we want to partner with you in bringing out their God-given gifts and talents.
