As ministry leaders continue to look at the research, one thing is clear: What happens at home is more impactful than what happens at church. Not that the church doesn’t matter; it just means we need to look at what we do at church differently. Spiritual convictions, for better or worse, will most always pass from parent to child and not pastor to child. Yet, many churches are still following a model of ministry that places the spiritual growth of kids and teens primarily on the shoulders of the ministry leaders and not on the parents.
This book is an attempt to develop a fresh, simple model of ministry that shifts our thinking from believing church is the primary source of spiritual growth to knowing that the home is the place lasting discipleship occurs. In other words, parents aren’t hindering our ministry; rather, we just might be hindering their ministry! Join the journey as we discover a new way of developing disciples for Jesus!
