Ministry Purpose

To enable the churches to fulfill their unique mission of instructing, training, enriching, and enabling men, women, and children to recognize, acknowledge, and commit to the biblical model of family and provide channels for cooperative family ministry (Ephesians 5:21-6:4).

Team Director - Monte Dean


The Family Ministry Team has served PLBA churches by equipping, encouraging, and engaging the churches and families to make disciples.

This year we offered the “What Now?” Family Conference. This was a conference that responded to the overwhelming need for clarity in our rapidly changing and often confusing culture. We need the stabilizing and energizing word of God to direct our actions toward His glory always. Our subject matter included.
