Many established churches struggle to incorporate the whole family into the ministry of the church. While the need for age-segmented ministries will always exist, silos can form with age groups. Jenny Smith joins the show today to discuss how a church can equip the entire family together. Her ideas include a new way of doing a children’s sermon, how to write your own curriculum that matches the sermon, and how to integrate children and students into the ministry of the church.

Southwestern Seminary offers a variety of degree programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels.
