FREE online family ministry training for the next 4 days

D6 DaysI love what the D6 Conference guys do around this time every year: they take some of their best family ministry training sessions from last year’s conference and make it available to you for free.

As someone who’s attended the D6 Conference for the past several years, I’m not only encouraged by the family conversation that’s taking place, but also by the heart of those behind D6. They’re truly serving ministries the best way they can to help facilitate a conversation around family ministry that influences the trajectory of how we reach and serve people.

Below is a list of sessions you can watch and listen to for free for the next 4 days, May 1-4, at On Sunday, this all goes away.

My Session Recommendation

If you only have time to watch one of these, I highly suggest watching Rob Rienow’s sessions called, “A Church Philosophy for the Generations.” In it he walks through many passages about how scripture says we are to pass faith to the next generation. I probably took more notes during that session than any of the others. In fact, I think I ended up writing down almost everything he said! It’s been 6 months since I heard him give this talk at the D6 Conference and I’m still processing it.

Definitely watch it, but do it soon because on Sunday D6 Days is over.

  • Rob Rienow

    Thanks so much for this encouragement! What was most meaningful to you about the message I shared? Questions? Comments? Disagreements? Thanks again.

    • Hey Rob, it’s a really long story, but to make it short, my wife and I (Dana, I think she’s been emailing with you) have really had our value of family challenged in the past couple years. As I said in reply to your comment via Facebook on the D6 Days site (when it was up), we’d love to worship together in a corporate worship service, but most services make that very difficult and counter-productive. Kind of frustrating right now.

      • Rob Rienow

        Tim, thanks for the kind note. I do understand your frustration. In faith, I hope that the Lord brings you to a local church that mirrors the NT model of keeping everyone together for worship. Who knows, perhaps the Lord will lead you to plant a church.

        • I have so many responses to that, all of which are too long for a blog comment. lol Thanks. We’ll see where the Holy Spirit leads us.
