John Wesley: Family Expert?

See my blog post on Nazarene Theological Seminary faculty blog 

“It is interesting just how prominent the concern for ministry to families continues to grow in local congregations these days. Several conferences and curriculums span both mainline churches and mainstream evangelical churches including Orange, D6, Faith at Home, and Vibrant Faith Ministries, just to name a few. Most of these initiatives surfaced either to support efforts to make current age-level ministries more family-friendly; to actually place families in the center of discipleship in their homes; or to foster a more comprehensive, intergenerational, ministry within the church. In the Church of the Nazarene, NTS has developed a partnership with SDMI to create Faithful Homes,  an online web resource to assist families in naming and shaping their spiritual walk.” (for more go to the NTS site)
