Family Ministry

What is Family Ministry

The Family Equipping Ministry Model begins with this biblical assumption: God has called parents to serve as primary disciple-makers in their children’s lives (Deut. 6:4-9; 11:18-21; Psa. 78:5; Eph. 6:4). The Family Equipping Ministry Model is not simply one more add-on to your present ministries. Family-equipping ministry is a process of realigning a congregation’s proclamation and practices so that parents—especially fathers—are acknowledged, trained, and held accountable as persons primarily responsible for their children’s discipleship. The Family Equipping Ministry Model does not do away with youth ministers or children’s ministers. Instead, this model reorients every ministry to partner with parents in the task of discipleship.
