This capstone presents a curriculum, built upon a foundation of family systems theory, for children, youth & family ministries seeking to educate and empower parents as their child's primary faith teacher, while building up strong children who desire to serve the Lord. Beginning with five, five-minute, Sunday morning announcements to encourage parents and other adults in the congregation to prayerfully consider a ministry of serving others alongside the children and youth in the congregation, this curriculum provides families with the opportunity to participate in a congregation-wide intentional discipleship experience. This three session discipleship experience incorporates experiential family service-learning projects into a Bible study on Christian service. Each session follows the Service-Learning Cycle of pre-reflection, service, post-reflection, giving parents and other adults the tools need to create life-changing family service-learning discipleship experiences.
