Serve in Family Ministry

Training parents and children to follow Jesus as a family.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

About Family Ministry

  • Our primary goal is to equip parents to pastor their families. We do this by inviting parents to serve on Sunday mornings, providing take-home curriculum to discuss with kids throughout the week, and holding training sessions on specific parenting topics.
  • Our second goal is to welcome kids to develop their relationship with Jesus. Our role on Sunday morning is to share about gospel-centered content in a way that is developmentally appropriate for each age group of children.
  • Our third goal of family ministry at The Well is to help develop our volunteers in their faith and giftings.
