5 Reasons NOT to Do Family Ministry by Rob Rienow

The following is a lead from Dr. Rienow’s post on his Visionary Family Ministries website. 

Many churches are jumping on the Holy Spirit powered reformation of family ministry. Unfortunately, some are exploring family ministry for the wrong reasons. Here are five reasons NOT to build a family ministry in your church.

1. The majority of children and teens growing up in our churches today are leaving the faith when they become adults. If we do a better job equipping parents, we will see more children keep the faith.

2. Marriages both within the church and within the community are in crisis. If we build a marriage ministry, we can lower the divorce rate.

3. Families are over-committed and have precious little time together. If we plan family events we can provide opportunities for them to grow together.
