Whether you have a full-blown family ministry in place or you’re just getting started, Shift gives you a practical, workable plan
that equips parents to be faith influencers in their homes–and you won’t have to reconfigure your entire ministry to make it happen! Shift gets you in gear with tools that make better use of seven rites of passage your church is most likely already celebrating…already marking as families move through their faith journey together.

One home at a time, you can move a fledgling family ministry effort to one that’s firing on all 6 cylinders! This is a family ministry approach that’s attainable and sustainable.



Every path has a destination. I want to take parents down the path of intentional spiritual parenting. The destination is a new generation
of children emerging as adults who know how to love God and love people. This new generation will also know how to equip their own children to do the same. The Legacy Path is a book meant to change the culture by moving our children and grandchildren toward life God s way instead of life portrayed as right in the eyes of the world. The reader will find many practical steps explained allowing the destination to be reached.
