Studies show that faith lived out in the home is more influential than the Church. Unfortunately studies also show that prayer, Bible reading and faith talk are almost non-existent in most Christian families. What can be done to reestablish the home as the primary place where faith is nurtured? Start with pastors who can set the tone for the importance of family ministry throughout the church. Building Faith at Home challenges pastors to do as Mark Holmen did—change from being a pastor who gave little attention to family ministry to being a senior pastor who has made family ministry a top priority in his church. Part of an exciting Faith at Home initiative, this book offers a vision and a practical model for how to weave family ministry into the DNA of churches. Holmen gives pastors the tools they need to consider the level of their commitment to family ministry and an integrated approach that can revolutionize their approach to this vital ministry.

From the Back Cover:

While church programs and Sunday school can do much to encourage belief in today’s youth, studies have shown that the influence of a family upon a child is much stronger. In fact, mom and dad are two-to-three times more influential than any church program in passing on a lifelong faith to their children. What does this mean for our ministries to families and children? It’s time for the church to reestablish the home as the primary place where faith is nurtured. If we truly want to rescue families, we need to change our approach to family ministry. Instead of encouraging parents to drop off their kids for faith building at church, pastors need to partner with parents to equip them for faith building at home.Building Faith at Home will challenge you to do as Mark Holmen did—change from being a pastor who gave little attention to family ministry to being a senior pastor who has made family ministry a top priority in his church. Part of an exciting Faith at Home initiative, this book offers a vision and a practical model for how to weave family ministry into the DNA of your church. Holmen supplies the tools needed to consider your church’s level of commitment to family ministry and an integrated approach that can revolutionize your approach to this vital ministry no matter what size church you serve.  If you are a pastor, church or lay leader, this book is a must-read as it will help you view your ministry from a perspective that has been overlooked and underestimated.
