Dispatch Box #3 - 7 Family Ministry Essentials

Yes, INCM's Dispatch boxes provide great resources which you can put to use in your children's ministry, but it also provides resources to help you keep your children's ministry on-track. This is why in Box #3 you'll find 7 Family Ministry Essentials, because when it comes to Children's Ministry, it is easy to get distracted and side-tracked from what matters most.
