A couple months ago I was asked to write a post for a blog tour where various pastors (children/youth/family/lead), authors, bloggers, and regular old moms and dad were asked to write a post simply answering the question: What is family ministry?
I was talking with my buddy Trevor (a family life pastor, blogger, and tweeter) about the fact that we were both writing our posts at the end of the blog tour. We wondered if we’d have anything “new” to say. Well…when it comes to defining family ministry…I’m not sure I do.
But having spent six years as a youth pastor and the last 16 traveling to speak at heaps of churches, I may have narrowed down the list of challenges to family ministry to two big ones:
Kids from families who know Jesus.
And kids from families who don’t.
Yep. That about covers it. Let’s break it down a bit.
