This course is a historical overview of the family from the 1st Century to the present in order to inform our ministry with families in the present day church. This understanding will explore the important foundation of a healthy marriage, evaluate the family as redeemed and not broken in God’s Big Story, and develop practical approaches to ministry with families.
