Grandparents are one of the most valuable resources in your church!

Many powerful voices are influencing young people today, from teachers and friends to celebrities and the media. To cut through all the noise, they need wise men and women to speak truth into their lives. Equipping Grandparents was written by family ministry experts to encourage church leaders to think about a demographic that has been overlooked and under-resourced in most churches: grandparents. Contributors include Lynda Freeman, Larry Fowler, Cavin Harper, Sherry Shuman, Wayne Rice, John Coulombe, and Joanne Lundberg.

This book provides ideas and resources to help your church reach and disciple the youngest generation through grandparents. Get ready to see the lives of families changed as you help grandparents pass on their faith to their children's children.

The Legacy Coalition is an organization committed to equipping grandparents to reach and disciple grandchildren and help churches minister effectively to millions of Christian grandparents who need encouragement, training, and resources.
