Mark Holmen & Dave Teixeira - Take It Home: Inspiration and Events to Help Parents Spiritually Transform Their Children
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 â€œimpressed on their heartsâ€ 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; and a Faith at Home interactive website. 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.
