• Specific ways to equip households to know God's story and to practice the Christian faith
at home and in daily life?


Equipping Households of Faith is based on research, scripture and an understanding of Baptism
that inform us that the home is the primary place for experiencing God's Story and practicing
our Christian faith. This course will help congregations build a strong and vital partnership with
households for a common mission. Children, youth and adults of all ages, and families in all
stages, will be encouraged and equipped to practice their faith in daily life.


This course was designed with the lay person in mind as well as the church professional. The presenters are people who know the research, are passionate about faith formation across the generations and engage with scripture in their own homes and congregations. The heart, mind and hands of the participant is engaged through personal stories, Biblical references, and practical ‚“how-to's."
