Whether your congregation has 50, 500 or 5,000 members, you have families attending week after week who are struggling like never before with painful issues such as addiction, depression, and isolation. Often, these families feel stigmatized, which perpetuates their silence and creates a barrier to asking for help.
If you’re a pastor, youth pastor, or small group leader who feels called to help the parents and children in your church address these “real life” issues from a Christian perspective, we invite you to consider our Christian Parent Handbook (and new companion Bible Study coming the summer of 2021). Parents will be blessed by these resources that will raise their awareness and empower them to have meaningful conversations with their children.
As Vice President of a 27,000 member Christian Ministers’ Association, The National Association of Christian Ministers, we are presently seeking, as a ministerial association, to train and put these materials in the hands of all church leaders, so as to effectively train parents to be influential parents. – Rodger Niemeier
By opening new channels of communication, you will restore hope and create an atmosphere where parents can openly address the toughest issues they face, and find the practical and spiritual help they need to keep parenting.
