We create ways to connect Christian parents in virtual community, in small groups, in events, and other ways.
Our fourth and final mission priority is about shifting from hearts (encouragement), heads (equipping), and hands (enabling), into help (engaging). When gears are engaged, things start to move. When we find ways to engage with Christian parents we do that to move them—to new family and life habits, better parenting choices, Christian home building plans, and lifegiving actions for their children.
Whole Heart does not have a worldwide staff that can engage personally with parents around the globe, but we’re thankful for the world wide web which allows us to engage virtually through streaming and on-demand online training and helps. We still try to meet personally with parents and moms in local events because we consider that kind of engagement important, and we want to have eye-to-eye connections with the parents we want to serve.
Engaging is the next logical step after we have given parents training, materials, and ministries. We find ways to engage with parents so we can help them move from being not only a “hearer” of the Word, but to being “an effectual doer” of the Word (James 1:22-25). When all the parental gears are engaging with the gears of God’s Word, then our children will be moved to follow Christ in their own generations, and to “put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments” (Psalm 78:7).
