Exploring family family [podcast]

LIVE Youth Ministry TalkLast Monday we had a great conversation with Matt Archer about family ministry. Two years ago his church shifted its focus a bit by combining children and youth ministry and changed his title to Family Ministry Pastor. He shares a bit about the history behind that shift, the programs they cut, and how it currently fleshes itself out in his church’s ministry.

Some of the things we talked about:

  • How to start changing the mindset in your church from children and youth ministry to family ministry
  • Why a comprehensive plan from child through adult ministry is important
  • Resources for shifting to family-based ministry
  • The story of one church’s shift from “silo” stage-of-life ministry to family-based ministry
  • Including teens and children who don’t have Christian parents or have no parents at all
  • And a lot more…
