Our vision and values

 

Our vision is to see families up and down the nation equipped to confidently parent their children into a vibrant, two-way relationship with God, and to see children and teens flourish within their families, in their churches and in their communities.

Our values

We believe God has shared with us in the Bible a simple plan for us to encourage our children into a vibrant, two-way relationship with God:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
Deuteronomy 6:5-9

We believe that God has perfectly positioned parents and carers to show their children the reality of a day-to-day life with God.

We believe faith is discovered, modelled and learned in the everyday, and it is important to us to share the imperfect, messy, realness of parenting and this will be reflected in our content and the images we use.

We believe each family and each child’s journey of faith is unique and there is no one right way to do parenting for faith – so we want to create a community of non-experts supporting and encouraging each other.

We believe stories are important and we want to encourage parents to think and give them opportunities to explore what Parenting for Faith looks like for their families.

We believe that parents are the primary disciplers of their children but they don’t disciple in isolation. Children exist within a wider community of faith and we can’t separate out all the influences on a child’s life so we are committed to resourcing and equipping all levels of that community.

In everything we do, we want to:

·        honour parents’ role as the primary discipler of and expert in their children

·        ensure that parents feel confident, equipped and resourced
