Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop 2021 – Professor Thompson in Milford, IA
The Vocation of Raising Children in the Faith: A Family-Centered Congregational Approach
This workshop will explore helping ministries to be family-centered and church-supported in raising children in the faith. Biblical mandates give this vocation to household leaders. The Small Catechism supports and equips families for this work. More vital than ever today, we need to incorporate into the ministry of the church and day school effective ways to serve families in raising up disciples of Jesus Christ.
