Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for considering pursuing the vision for the next generation with us!
The opportunities in Family Discipleship are varied enough to involve many different people with different gifts. If you have a heart for God and a desire to make Him known to the next generation, there is probably a place for you in these ministries.
