Families on Mission: Volunteering at a Local Food Bank

As a youth pastor, I am always looking for opportunities to include families in ministry. Family involvement is crucial in the spiritual growth of children. Part of that spiritual growth begins when children begin to think with a missions mindset—from inward to outward thinking.
