These resources are helpful to both students and parents. Many of these resources have been recommended to me either by people I know and trust, or are promoted by organizations and authors that I know to have very similar values that we have at Berrien Center Bible Church. However, if you ever read anything in these resources that you think might conflict with Berrien Center’s values, then please don't hesitate to contact the Student Ministry Director and let him know.
