There is a repeated mistake happening in church practices all across the world. The mistake is in not inviting, equipping, and expecting parents and other adults to play a vital role in the faith formation of their children and the young people in their congregation. The results of repeatedly making this mistake have been disastrous in that young people have left congregational life in droves. This book addresses the need to elevate the role of the home and offers suggestions for recovering the life of the home as an essential ingredient to the ministry of congregations and the larger church.

This is the first book in a vibrant faith development series. Parents play the most important role in the vibrant faith formation of their children. Yet, many congregations fail to equip parents and other caring adults, with the tools they need to nurture and grow the faith of the young people in their churches. The author traces how this "Great Omission" has happened and what we can do to challenge our youth to live lives of faith and service. This is a wonderful resource for congregational leaders, parents, grandparents, and adults who seek a vibrant faith in Jesus Christ for themselves and their children. It is an excellent guide to use for congregational leadership study and strategic planning.
