family ministry

Discipleship at home matters. Discover resources, training and thinking about family ministry.

Parents need to be the driving force in the faith formation of their children.

So how do parents step up to disciple their children and engage them purposely? And how do pastors, teachers and others help awaken parents to this role?

Faith formation is a 24/7 process of being formed, transformed, and conformed to be like Jesus. Because it’s a lifelong pursuit, it can’t be scheduled or compartmentalized. Reducing it to a church program or a curriculum for a family to work on at home is inadequate. Faith formation should be a pulse in the happenings of everyday life.

Help parents disciple children at home by encouraging and equipping them. We want to help your church with family ministry.

Family Sunday with Dr. Lawson Murray

Invite Dr. Lawson Murray to speak at your church one Sunday morning. He will preach a sermon to strengthen family faith formation, encouraging parents and the whole congregation.

We will also provide a book table from Christian Books Canada showcasing and making available excellent family resources that we’ve recently developed.

 

I very strongly encourage you to invite Dr. Lawson Murray of Scripture Union to speak at your church.  His messages on “Family Matters” are outstanding and will really help and bless your people.
