God created the family and the local church with the shared mission to glorify God and spread the Gospel.

New e-Book, Now Available Free

We’re excited to share with you a new e-book we just produced with help from a number of global leaders in family discipleship. The purpose of this ebook is to invite you to join us and other church leaders around the world to develop and engage in strategic, biblical ministry to families.

Family ministry is not simply helpful or beneficial, but necessary and essential to the work of the local church. God has created two fundamental institutions to advance His Gospel and build His Kingdom in the world—the church and the family. At the heart of this movement is uniting the church and the family in the Great Commission. We created this ebook to spark prayer, thought, and conversations surrounding the urgent call for the global Christian church to give strategic efforts to building, strengthening, and equipping families for Christ. Let us know what you think!

God created the family and the local church with the shared mission to glorify God and spread the Gospel. In the Bible, God gives distinct roles and responsibilities to the Christian family and to the Christian church. When the family and the church fulfill their proper roles, the Kingdom of God advances!

This book seeks to reclaim the simple, transformational, and global mission revealed in Scripture for both the church and family. A must read for anyone passionate about church ministry, family life, and the global cause of Christ. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make it ideal for church teams to study together.
