For Churches

What is Family Time and how can I start equipping and encouraging families in my church?

The greatest gift you can give to the families in your church is to take 4 hours per week {just 1/10 of your time if you’re a full-time employee} and begin equipping, educating, and encouraging your families to do home discipleship.

At Family Time, we believe that church leadership is the greatest advocate for parents and children learning together at home! You can encourage them, provide resources, and be a source of accountability week in and week out as you do life together in your church community.

We are here to support you with two primary resources: training events and the Family Time activity tool.

If you believe, like we do, that passing the faith at home is God’s design for families, and that the church and the family working together will bring glory to God by raising up the next generation of believers, then please let us partner with you! Whether you have a seemingly unlimited budget or literally no budget, we will work with you to support the families in your church.

Here’s how to get started:

1) Contact us and let us know you’re interested. We’ll set up a free, no-obligation phone call to explore the next best steps for you and your church.
2) Sign up to get our emails. We send a free activity every month, plus you’ll get product specials, quick tips, and hear about other family ministry resources.
3) Grab this month’s free activity from our home page. You don’t need to wait until next month to start using our activities. Just click and enjoy!
