Equipping Families to

In Your Adult Children
Does your church have a plan to equip parents and grandparents in their God-given mission to help their children follow God? Join Jenna Hallock (Family Time Training) and Scott Turansky (National Center for Biblical Parenting) as they discuss essential ingredients for your church’s ministry to parents as well as key principles to help parents navigate the COVID pandemic.
The COVID crisis has brought unusual trauma into our families and churches. Each family will return from this challenging season with different experiences and perspectives. Join Prof. Ben Freudenberg (Concordia Center for the Family) and Glenn Gritzon (Congregation Family Services) as they explore how we can lead our churches toward unity and help our families experience healing.
For church leaders it is all too common for us to neglect our own families while we are overwhelmed with caring for others. Join Prof. Ben Freudenberg (Concordia Center for the Family) and Dr. Rob Rienow (Visionary Family Ministries) as they discuss essential principles and practices for family ministry, beginning in our own homes and then overflowing to our congregations.
The COVID pandemic has created upheaval for our families, churches, and nations. It is a time when God is calling His people to re-examine their priorities. Join Pastor Todd Biermann and Prof. Ben Freudenberg for a critical conversation on how we can help families establish their foundation on Christ and live out their faith with biblical priorities. This is a vital time for families to follow Jesus and shine for Him in our world.
Many churches have a heart to help hurting marriages and families but don’t know where to start. Join Prof. Ben Freudenberg (Concordia Center for the Family) and Dr. Rob Rienow (Visionary Family Ministries) as they discuss practical strategies for how your church can help families grow in worshipping God together at home, building stronger relationships with one another, and sharing the good news of Jesus in their neighborhoods.
God calls parents and grandparents to serve as the primary spiritual leaders for their children. Sadly, spiritual training is often delegated to the church. Join Jenna Hallock (Family Time Training) and Dr. Rob Rienow (Visionary Family Ministries) for a vital conversation on how your church can help parents and grandparents spiritually connect with their children at home. You will come away with specific approaches for helping families create engaging, fun, and meaningful time together in God’s Word, prayer, and worship.
What has family ministry in the church looked like for the past 30 years? How is COVID changing our vision and understanding of family ministry? Join Dr. Roger Theimer (Kids Kount Publishing) and Jenna Hallock (Family Time Training) for this vital conversation on how our churches can partner more effectively with the home for the advance of the Gospel.
59% of twenty-somethings have stopped attending Christian churches
The church in the United States is facing a crisis. George Barna’s research from 2013 indicates that 59% of twenty-somethings have stopped attending Christian churches, even though they were active at church during their teen years. Through our own research in churches around the country we have found that 2 out of 3 of our empty-nest parents have at least one child not walking with the Lord.
But the Holy Spirit is on the move and God is around the world, turning the hearts of parents to their children, and the hearts of children back to their parents. God is inspiring fathers to become the loving spiritual leaders of their families and renewing in mothers the priority of their ministry at home. God is bringing hope to hopeless marriages and bringing prodigal children home!
