Includes key research findings, true stories, quizzes, checklists, and practical tools that congregations can use to become more effective. Even the most experienced pastor and church leader will find new ways to strengthen their families - and their church.A poll of 1,005 parents in the United States, which was released in November 2002 by Search Institute and YMCA of the USA, found five key findings:1) Most parents surveyed are going it alone.2) Many parents interviewed lack a strong relationship with a spouse or a partner.3) A majority of parents surveyed feel successful as parents most of the time.4) Most parents polled face ongoing challenges.5) Many things these parents say would help them as parents are easy thing others can do.When churches use these research findings, they will find that not only will these strategies benefit families but they also will benefit their church.Embracing Parents challenges pastors and other church leaders to expand their vision, to become proactive in meeting the needs of families, and to provide a key place where parents and their children can grow.
-Publisher

Many churches already involve parents and families, but most are falling short. Many focus on their inability to get parents and families involved, often failing to build on the strengths they already have to meet families' needs. The Roehlkepartains take a broader approach to family ministry. Based on recent research, their book challenges pastors and other church leaders to expand their vision, become proactive in meeting the needs of families, and help the church be a place where parents and their children can grow. The authors provide key research findings, true stories, quizzes, checklists, and practical tools that congregations can use to become more effective. Even the most experienced pastor and church leader will find new ways to strengthen their families--and their churches.
