Parent Ministry

Family Ministries

The Scriptures teach that the family is God’s ordained unit for society. We strive to encourage and equip RFBC families to fulfill their God-ordained roles as fathers, mothers, and children. We are committed to help found families on Jesus Christ and to encourage healthy growth toward Christlikeness in both parents and children. Family ministries is a staff-wide commitment to prioritize and build up biblical sound familes of all shapes and sizes.

Our mission statement: Family Ministries at RFBC exists to help equip people with skills for marriage and parenting by teaching, modeling, and applying God’s Word.

By God’s grace, the pastoral staff hopes to strengthen the families at RFBC by:

  • Strengthening biblical marriages.
  • Providing premarital training and equipping.
  • Teaching classes aimed at growing in our roles as men and women, husbands and wives.
  • Providing counseling and discipleship opportunities regarding God’s plan for marriage.
  • Encouraging family fellowship opportunities.
  • Providing resources for homeschooling, supporting several programs which suppliment homeschool education, as well as facilitating children's sports and activities.  

Opportunities are available to assist and minister in many different areas. To help get "plugged in," or for more information, contact Pastor Jim Kistner at the church office, 977.1789.
