In just two short words the D6 Conference is about “Family Ministry.” When you take a look at Scripture, it’s difficult to separate God’s plan for discipleship from Family Ministry (and by Family Ministry we mean, churches equipping parents to partner in discipling their own kids). As commanded in Deuteronomy 6 (D6), it is God’s “plan A” that the family is a discipleship center where faith is passed from generation to generation. The D6 Conference helps churches develop and sustain an integrated discipleship strategy that combines the relationship and influence of the church and the home.
The D6 Conference is fully devoted to Family Ministry. Other common terms to Family Ministry are Church+Home, Generational Discipleship, Faith@Home, Equipping Parents, NextGen Discipleship, Spiritual Formation, etc. So, if D6 is about equipping families, why the Abide theme at D6 2012? For quite some time, leaders have been asking:
Is it possible that the greatest obstacle parents have to overcome in leading their own
kids spiritually is a mediocre relationship with Christ and an anemic understanding of His
Is it possible that you as a leader are spending enormous investments of time building your NextGen discipleship strategy, but are failing to Abide in Christ personally?
D6 is about Family Ministry. Family Ministry is about Discipleship. And the essence of the discipleship relationship can be summed up in one word: Abide. If we stay connected to the True Vine, and if the parents to whom we minister stay connected to the True Vine, we will bear much fruit. That’s what discipleship is all about! Passing our faith in Christ to the NextGen so they can reach the nations with the gospel.
This year, during the Main Event, we are covering topics like:
- The impact technology is having on this generation . . . and how we can minister through it
- NEW! Introducing how Young Adult Ministry fits into the D6 conversation
- The impact pornography is having on kids and students . . . and how to minister
- Real-life Family Ministry models from churches who are living it: Integrating kids ministry, student ministry, young adult ministry and adult discipleship
- The concentric circles of Family Ministry: you as a leader, your spouse, your family, the church, the nations
- Discipling men and fathers to live and lead their families with courage
- Taking time to Abide in Christ personally (for you as a leader, and the parents you lead)
- Orphan care, adoption, and inspiring families to live with compassion
