Young Families bring life to churches and neighborhoods and lead to new growth in Christian schools! Churches and schools that are growing are effectively reaching young families.
Today's issue highlights a few of the ways that we can assess our current ministry to see where there is room for growth and to explore new ways of reaching out to the young families in our community.
This issue also raises some of the "relationship decisions" which need to be made to reach new families. Relationships make us aware of opportunities and needs. We are not giving you quick fixes to reach young families, but I hope that we will raise some important questions and help you identify areas where you can prepare and build relationships.
Please send us your comments and success stories in reaching new families! When we share effective practices with each other, we are ALL stronger and more powerful!
Sneak preview: In our next issue, we will raise the issue of reaching young families with technology! If you are already effectively using tools like You-tube, Face-book, Twitter, Google, etc. to reach young parents, we would love to hear from you! We would love to present a couple of case studies of effective ministry!
Together with you in His service,
