Equipping and supporting families

God has placed churches around families to support, encourage and equip them. Here you’ll find articles which will introduce you to our Parenting for Faith course as well as thinking through how to envision and equip your families to parent for faith, including those who come to your church for infant baptism or dedication.

We also have articles and resources to help you support families through the tricky stuff, from illness and death to transitions, mental health and more.
