The urgency to reimagine faith formation was accelerated in recent years by the global pandemic. We know now more than ever parents matter most. To have a lasting impact on the spiritual and faith formation of children, we must partner with parents. These presentations offer a vision of family faith formation and guiding principles for that ministry, supported by research. The presentation reviews six practical strategies to employ, as you design a family faith formation approach in your church community. Each is illustrated with examples from other church communities already engaged in family faith formation - offering inspiration and encouragement to you as you begin to design a transformational family ministry. As you watch the three-part video presentation consider: How can you accompany families? How can you affirm parents in their role as spiritual leaders? How can you provide families with the hope they need today?
