Church + Home
The Faith at Home movement is changing church in North America and across the world. As more and more leaders realize that lasting, lifelong faith is rarely taught in Sunday school but is rather “caught” from parents, they are shifting their focus and resources to equip families for spiritual formation. Church + Home is the essential blueprint for church leaders who want to make the change count eternally.
Pastors, children’s and youth ministers and lay leaders will learn how to reestablish the home as faith’s primary incubator, to build bridges between church and home, and to envision and implement family ministry in their church, no matter its size. Most of all, they will find practical tools for weaving family ministry into the DNA of their church community. This revised and updated title from a primary leader in the Faith at Home movement includes everything a church needs to put faith back where it belongs: at home.

Take it Home
Take It Home is part of an exciting Faith at Home initiative, which seeks to help congregations develop an integrated and comprehensive approach to family ministry. If we want our children to have a faith that is “impressed on their hearts” as Deuteronomy 6 depicts, the Church must reestablish the home as the primary place where faith is nurtured, training and equipping parents to take up this vital task. To this end, Mark Holmen and David Teixiera have assembled a complete package for pastors, including a mission, vision and strategy for family ministry; thirteen reproducible and customizable Take-It-Home Event outlines; a DVD with compelling messages for senior pastors and Christian education leaders. Now churches can help parents transform spiritual formation from the one-hour drop-off each Sunday to a daily walk with Jesus and to teach families how to fit Christ into the center of their homes and into the hearts of their children.
