God has entrusted you with children for a reason! The biblical purpose of parenting is to do all in our power to impress the hearts of our children with a love for God. The souls of our children are our most important Great Commission calling. We have created Visionary Parenting, along with a wide variety of other family resources, to encourage and equip you for this mission.
Be sure to check out the free mp3 parenting seminars and downloadable family worship guides (below).

God calls parents to take the lead in passing faith to their children at home. This begins with the practice of family worship. In Deuteronomy 6:7, in response to the Great Commandment, God calls His people to “talk about [the word of God] when you sit at home.” For centuries this has been called family worship – the time the family gathers together for prayer, Bible reading, sharing, and spiritual growth with one another. God calls parents and grandparents to lead family worship, and therefore He calls churches to help inspire them, encourage them, and equip them to be successful. To that end, we provide Family Worship Guides to help families discover the joy and power of family worship. These guides are available as free pdf downloads below.
