The Center for Christian Family Ministry at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The Latest Installment of The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry (3.2) is Now Available

by Derek Brown & Timothy Paul Jones – Sep 18

We are happy to announce that the latest installment of The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry (Spring/Summer 2013) is now available.  You can access a PDF copy of the JDFM here.

Due to many positive but time-consuming changes at Southern Seminary, The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry is running a few weeks late, but I am particularly excited about the content of this issue. The focus of this issue of JDFM is intergenerational faithfulness, an issue that is every bit as crucial as equipping parents.

Specifically focused on that theme, we have two articles from Holly Allen on how churches became segmented over the past century, a feature from Josh Mulvihill on the role of grandparents, as well as two practical articles on cultivating intergenerational relationships in their local churches. Articles on portrayals of fathers in the popular media, practices of Christian parenting, and the poison of pornography specifically examine relationships within families. Rounding out and supplementing the central theme, there are features on fatherhood, youth ministry, and evangelizing your child.

As always, we invite you to send your articles and article requests to familyministry@sbts.edu! In the upcoming year, you will see issues celebrating the twentieth anniversary Mark DeVries’ Family-Based Youth Ministry and examining the Jewish backgrounds of Christian discipleship. On another note, The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry is now published in partnership with the new Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Ministry. Congratulations to Dr. Adam Greenway on taking the helm as dean of this new school!
