About this session
This session focuses on two areas in which the integration of faith is applied “on-mission” for God within the family domain. Those areas are discipleship within the home (both in children and in adults) and to impact in surrounding community (in Christian witness and in service to others). The main point of this session is that family life is to be lived on Gospel mission both within the nuclear family and among those the family touches.
