Help Families in Your Church Grow in Their Christian Faith!

You want families in your church to know Jesus. To glorify God in their neighborhoods. To raise faithful children. So help them get the job done...by becoming a family-friendly church!

Join veteran Christian educator Ben Freudenburg as he journeys across America to find family-friendly churches. Churches that truly care for their families...including the families of their pastors!

Discover how key churches are revolutionizing family ministry. How they're discipling parents to lead their children. Bringing families together at church, and equipping families for a home-based, church-supported ministry.

This book is a must-have for every pastor! Discover how certain programming can often short-circuit your church's ability to truly strengthen families–and what you can do about it! You'll get practical ideas and suggestions featuring profiles of real churches.

It also includes thought-provoking application worksheets that will help you apply the principles and insights to your own church.
