FAMILY LEGACY MAP

The Family Legacy Map is a visual representation of our family ministry strategy, which focuses on seven life stages that every family will encounter from cradle to college. It encourages parents to take the lead as primary disciple makers. The map stresses the role of the church as the equippers for parents who celebrate with the family as they progress through each life stage.

17-18 HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION

During the High School Graduation life stage, we hope to finish the Family Legacy Map strong by preparing your child for the struggles of being a believer not only at university, but also in the real world. From encountering different worldviews to dating and relationships to managing finances, your child is about to be given his or her first real taste of adulthood. Let’s help them build a strong foundation in Christ so they can succeed in college and beyond.
