Family Ministry Field Guide

How Your Church Can Equip Parents to Make Disciples


Categories: ,


Scripture calls parents to train and nurture their children’s faith. How can churches best equip families to disciple their children? Family ministry expert Dr. Timothy Paul Jones gives church leaders a practical plan to equip parents to be the primary faith trainers in their children’s lives, moving beyond mere programming into genuine spiritual transformation. This resource is for leaders in the trenches­­­­—those who: see parents disengaging from their children’s spiritual development, see too many students leave for college and drop out of church, or are frustrated with programmed ministries that fail to produce results. Based on solid research, this field guide unpacks how real-life churches can narrow the gap between present reality and the biblical ideal of faith-nurturing families.
