Family Ministry: One Disciples Another

Psalm 145:1-4
I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you,
and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall laud your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
"Family ministry is
the long, slow, hard work
of people who disciple parents and grandparents
so that they can disciple children.

It has always been people who disciple people,
and the process has always been multi-generational.

Yes, there can be helpful tools in that process.
But unless we are directly focusing
on nurturing the faith in the daily life of people
who are in turn nurturing the faith of others,
all the products in the world
won’t produce Christians
with a vibrant faith in Jesus.

Let’s help the Spirit 
create vibrant faith."

The above quotation from Vibrant Faith.
