Parents and families are busier than ever--and so are you--but partnering with them is as important as ever. So how do you do that? Author Phil Bell has taken his 20 years of experience and created a playbook to help you come alongside parents.
This isn't a plan to make your ministry look like someone else's. These are proven ideas you can weave into the things you're already doing. These practical ideas work whether you're full-time, part-time, or a volunteer. And you can add them on to your own timeline.
Partnering with parents isn't about just getting them to come to you. It's about a ministry that meets in the middle--where you are and where they are--creating a stronger ministry and stronger families.
