Parents

The Family Ministry exists to build life long followers of Christ through multi-generational faithfulness to bring God glory.

 

How are we applying our strategy for Family Ministry?

1. Families are priority

  • God has designed the family to be the center of discipleship and evangelism (Deuteronomy 6)
  • The Biblical purpose for Parenting is to press the hearts of children with the Love of Christ
  • God created the family to be a picture of multi-generational faithfulness to bring Him glory 

2. We are aligning our discipleship efforts with our children and students

  • Life Groups and milestones will have a woven strategy from Birth to Graduation
  • Staff and committees will work together with the same goal in mind
  • We will filter everything we do with the end in mind. We want every kid and student that graduates from our church to be a life-long follower of Jesus Christ

3. Parents will be served

  • Partnering with Parents to build life long followers is key to success
  • We will do our best to equip parents to have tools and resources to disciple children
  • We will not only focus on doing a great job leading kids and students, but we will also do our best to challenge and disciple parents
