If someone were to ask you, “What is
the purpose of family?” If we don’t know the purpose for which God
created our family, how can we ever expect our family to be successful? This
short book will speak to the hearts of parents and grandparents and give them
a fresh vision for the great calling and mission that God has given them to impress
the hearts of their kids with a love for God.
Foundations for Developing a Life-Changing Family Ministry By The Family Ministry Team from AMFM
What does your church believe about families?
A transformational family ministry does not start with the right programs; it
starts with the right convictions. Before a church begins the journey of “Family
Ministry” it is essential to establish the right theological foundations
and biblical principles upon which to build.
Every aspect of AMFM is dedicated to helping families become all
that God wants them to be. The Family Ministry Team, in particular, is dedicated
to helping leaders develop and implement models of family ministry in the local
church. We respond to such questions as:
How can a church effectively call and equip parents to be the primary spiritual
trainers of their children?
How can a church develop a team-based, church-wide emphasis on strengthening
families rather than creating another silo called “family ministry?”
What does it mean to think of family ministry as a strategy for discipleship,
rather than simply “helping families and marriages become healthier?”
How can a leadership team intentionally change the culture of their church
over an extended period of time so that discipleship is happening within the
family, not just the church?
Each month you will find practical tools, articles, and audio downloads on
how to strengthen your family, as well as the families within your church.
