Talking All Things Family Ministry

(With Michelle Craddock, Equipping Minister)

Part 1 of the Family Ministry Series

Ministry to Parents kicks off Season Two with a new series on Family Ministry! So many ministry leaders talk about how their schedules are busy, filled with administrative tasks or building relationships with students. They don’t have the time to connect with parents or they don’t know what to do. So Elisabeth and Jeremy invited Michelle Craddock, Associate Equipping Minister at Oak Hills Church, to share her insight and experience on working full-time with parents. In this episode, you will learn practical ideas and find inspiration as Michelle shares her take on:
