Parenting as a church leader
Parenting when you are also a church leader can bring up some unique situations and challenges, but there are practical things we can do to enable our families to flourish in the goldfish bowl of church life.
Our Parenting as a Church Leader course is exclusively designed for all those balancing family life with vocational ministry, whether you’re in church leadership or married to someone who is.
It’s entirely free to view, and freely accessible on our dedicated website, so you can watch at a time convenient to you.
You can also run a course (in person or online) for your church leadership team, region or denomination. Do get in touch if you’re doing this – we’d love to pray for you and support you.
