The Family Ministry program from Dallas Baptist University also approaches the family from a therapeutic perspective regarding the specific needs of certain life-stages and how to appropriately respond to family crises.


Family Ministry is a growing trend and a powerful tool in contemporary ministry. The need to strengthen, model instruction, and encourage Christian families has never been greater. Servant leaders with a heart for families will proactively explore best practices for encouraging Christian family formation through every phase of life.
