What is Family Ministries?
Many of you, for the very first time, are Family Ministries (FM) coordinators for your local church. Like any other experience that is new to us, we are often somewhat fearful–we don’t want to fall flat on our faces in front of a live audience; we want to succeed.
Truth be told, you have just accepted an awesome responsibility. And if you are fearful, you’ve got a right to be. Since families are the nucleus of society and the church, helping your congregation to engage in experiences to strengthen family life, regardless of how these families are configured, is a big task. But, it is a rewarding and blessed work.
You don’t have to begin from scratch. Here are some helpful tools to get you started:
