A Necessary Shift in Family Ministry

Family ministry. Bottom line is this - family ministry first and foremost is about influencing parents to be the primary spiritual leaders of their children.

Parents are definitely the biggest influence in children's lives.

If you want to influence children, then you must first influence their biggest influencer...their parents.

Most of us, have poured ourselves into equipping parents by providing them discipleship tools and resources.

But there is a crucial factor that I believe needs to given attention to by children's ministry leaders. And that is training parents. Specifically in two areas - marriage and parenting.

Let's start with marriage. For far too long, we have skipped over this vital factor.

One of the biggest factors in seeing kids grow up to love Jesus is the health of their parent's marriage.

For far too long, we have left that part of training and equipping in the hands of adult ministry...men's ministry...women's ministry.
