God created the institution of family as the foundation for all human life and he created families to be the primary place for faith formation. Programmatic ministry, although done well many times, is not keeping our young people connected to the faith. God never intended for the faith to be outsourced but to be lived out in the homes and in the context of family. Family Ministry Coaching is a unique way for congregations to equip, support, and strengthen the Christian home in order to help make the faith more “sticky.” Come see how, just like a personal trainer at the gym, a Family Ministry Coach becomes for them a human partner in the Gospel - someone to be a part of their “Christian village.”
