About the book: 
7 Family Ministry Essentials: A Strategy for Culture Change in Children's and Student Ministries (David C. Cook, June 2015)

With decades of ministry experience, Michelle Anthony and Megan Marshman capture the guiding essentials of life-changing family ministry.

These seven essentials for children and student leaders emphasize:

2. Forming lifetime faith that transcends childhood beliefs 
3. Teaching Scripture as the ultimate authority of truth 
4. Understanding the role of the Holy Spirit to teach and transform

6. Making God central in every biblical narrative and daily living 
7. Participating in community with like-minded ministry leaders

7 Family Ministry Essentials will energize and equip you with the practical steps, inspirational stories, and biblical foundation you need as you lead those in your ministry.

*My Review*

I found "7 Family Ministry Essentials: A Strategy for Culture Change in Children's and Student Ministries" to be a greatly beneficial book to anyone involved with student or children's ministry. I feel that Michelle & Megan really did their research for this book.

I really liked that the chapters end with a Ministry Assessment which include ways to challenge and motivate your family ministry leaders.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a resource to improve or transform their family ministry.
