I’m honored to have the opportunity to contribute to the 2012 Family Ministry “FAMMIN” blog tour, organized by Matt Norman, Children’s Pastor of The Rock Church in Winter Haven, FL and managing editor of the well-known children’s ministry website Kidmin1124. I’ll be one of many bloggers over the summer examining the question “What is family ministry?” My post is scheduled for Friday, August 24th.
A blog tour is an opportunity for many different people to discuss a specific topic on a pre-established schedule. The contributors Matt has lined up include many leading figures in children’s and family ministry, including Amy Dolan from last year’s Inclusion Fusion and our very popular guest blogger Mike Woods from First Baptist Orlando.
Here’s a link where you can check out some of the earlier posts from the blog tour. These posts are worth checking out. In 2011, we devoted several months to a blog series on the importance of family ministry approaches in effectively serving kids with disabilities and their families. I’m confident that church staff and volunteers who apply the principles and strategies central to the family ministry movement will be better prepared to support parents as they share their faith with their children with emotional, behavioral and developmental disorders.

For readers who aren’t tech obsessed, #fammin is the Twitter hashtag for family ministry posts.
