The purpose of the Family Ministry is to help families in Oak Shade Baptist Church equip themselves with the skills and insights necessary to develop their personal family relationships to a point where they are successful. This success will show itself in improved interpersonal relationships among all family members, including parent-child and parent-parent interactions.
Moreover, this ministry will help all members grow together as a "church family". To meet these ends, a variety of sessions have been implemented. These sessions include training seminars for all family members (sometimes with family members separated - children in one place, parents in another), social gatherings (picnics, etc.), and informal worship services.
