Session 4: Starting a Grandparenting Ministry in your Church

There’s hardly a church in America that has a ministry focus on grandparenting; yet grandparents are second only to parents in their ability to influence children spiritually.  It is time to set a new course and to move the millions of Christian grandparents in America to use their influence to its fullest potential, and to see churches recognize and support their power to disciple.  Join us in this awesome new movement!!
