Our Mission (2 of 4): Equipping Christian Parents


Whole Heart is at its heart a discipleship ministry—we equip parents and children to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.

Before we became parents we were disciples, but we were also disciple makers. As single adults, we both had served on staff with a ministry that focused on evangelism and discipleship—winning others to Christ, building them up in the Word, and sending them into the world to do the same for others. As disciple makers trained by that ministry, we were equipping others for ministry for Christ.

When we became parents, we found that the ministry principles that had been instilled so deeply in us as young adults would find a new expression—our children would become our most important disciples. We realized that Christ’s Great Commission—to “make disciples of all the nations”—must begin with the nation of our home, and our children. We were grateful to have been trained by our earlier ministry to be able to make that pivot into our family.

The second priority of Whole Heart Ministries is to equip Christian parents to be disciple makers in their homes. We hear the words of Paul to his disciple, Timothy, that the Word of God works in every area of his life “so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every God work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Our desire is to find all that the Word of God has to say to us as Christian parents, and to equip other parents with that truth. We want to equip them to become disciple makers at home.
