Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Book  Sep 25, 2005
This book was purchased as a text book for a graduate course at Campbell Divinity School. It's a great book for the course in which it was offered. I would recommend this book for any church leader interested in the family ministry of their church.
The first book a youth and family minister should read  Oct 10, 2002
Ben Freudenburg has established himself as one of the most respected Christian Education directors of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. His glimse into home-based Christian education, as opposed to the conventional church-based Christian education, has changed many individuals views on how the church reaches out through traditional Christian education methods. This book presents a wonderful philosophical basis for beginning the shift to a home-based Christian education system. Check it out.
Family focus for the Church.  Feb 8, 2002
The Family Friendly Church is the chronicle of personal discovery by Ben Freudenburg. The discovery may seem simple but it is an area missed by many churches. How about yours? Ministry to children and families with young children is often overlooked and undervalued.

Often when a church grows or adds staff, the first position to be filled is the youth pastor. Unfortunately this is a plan that follows traditional practice and not conventional understanding. One must look no further than current statistics to determine this.

According to the Barna research group, children are the most available to receiving and accepting the Good News. If you are spending the majority of your church's momentum, manpower, and resource on something other than children, you may be unwisely using your talents. Children are the future and most likely the best way to reach the adult population in your community.

The Family Friendly Church will offer suggestions and simple resources to reach families with children. Employ your leaders and families in the process of building a strong Family Friendly Church.

Family First  Jan 15, 2000
Should the Christian family support the church and be church-centered, or should the church support the family and be family-centered? The Family Friendly Church, by Freudenburg and Lawrence argues that to reach the needs of Boomers and their families a shift needs to take place from a church-centered family to a family-centered church. By facilitating ministry with the families, not to them, the church accomplishes its mission and develops strong families.
Must read for all in ministry!!!  Oct 3, 1999
This book is a must read for all in ministry, full-time, part-time or volunteer. Freudenburg's sabbatical experience led him to understand the needs of his family (him) and the need for the church to enable,allow and train parents to be the source of their childrens faith and practice of faith. This book will challenge your thinking about ministry and life in ministry. It will create a paradigm shift in your churches priorities which I believe would be the most positive move you could make.

This book could easily be titled the Family Friendly Ministry. Change the word church to fit your organization and you will be challenged to a more effective and efficient ministry.
