Partnering with families


We are passionate about helping encourage, resource, and champion families as the primary disciple makers in their homes. As part of our process, we’ve developed a roadmap for families to help unpack our discipleship strategy in coming alongside families for the sake of the gospel among the next generation.
Our discipleship process for the next generation progresses through age-appropriate ministries that we simply refer to as “Phases.” Within each Phase, our goal is to identify the overarching goal for the child, events and programs that help us get there, and key Spiritual Markers we are praying would come into fruition. You’ll also find recommended resourcing for families within each Phase that we’ll keep updated on a monthly basis.

We can’t wait to see how God moves
in the lives of our families this year.
