MAXlife Parent Resources
The middle school years can be tough not only for your teen, but for you as a parent. Friendships, dating, a pursuit of independence, social media, school pressures, faith and spiritual questions... so many challenging parenting obstacles all jam packed in such a few short years. But, oh how important those years are! At MAXlife, it’s not our desire to take your place as the spiritual leader of your teen. It’s our desire to partner with you as you lead your teen to grow in their faith and live their lives for God.
You have dreams and goals for your teen, and we want to champion those goals with you. Below is a snapshot of actions your teen can take in an effort to grow in their character and faith.
Families of middle schoolers, we've got you covered!
We may not be able to meet in person, but are you still down to hang out? Join us on Instagram Live and feel free to invite your friends...there are infinite open seats. We're also providing online resources you will not want your family to miss out on. Give us a follow on all of our social media below, sign up for our weekly emails and we'll do the rest. It's that easy! Don't forget to get the devos sent to you every week by texting "MAXLIFE" to 86677.

The Meck app
Download the Meck app at any app store. Under the “Kids and Students” you’ll find resources to listen to MAXlife weekly messages, find follow-up questions and suggested Bible readings for each message, see a list of MAXlife events and find discipleship resources. You’ll also be able to access all other Meck resources for other Meck ministries through the Meck app. Listening to the messages on the app is not a reason to miss MAXlife.
