Training Pastors for Family Ministry

A group of twenty pastors from different denominations gathered for a pastor’s lunch on Friday, September 20 in Winona Lake, Indiana. Dr. Josh Mulvihill lead a discussion that trained pastors to design a customizable biblical strategy for family ministry based around four key influences: parents, grandparents, age-based church programs, and education. Pastors were encouraged to reject the attractional, entertainment model and embrace the authority and sufficiency of the Bible for ministry to children and youth.
