Partnering with the home for children’s spiritual formation should be the highest priority for our ministries. This is not something new. Our calling to partnership began when Deuteronomy 6 was penned long ago. So, where do we actually begin?

The programming part of our ministries often comes easy, that’s the fun part. The partnering piece, however, can be overwhelming and slow going, but is so inspiring!

Deuteronomy 6 is our guide that defines, explains, and makes a clear case that partnering with parents should be our mantra.

Hear from Melissa MacDonald as she illuminates new light on this great book and passage.
