The Prince of Peace Families & Children Ministry exists to provide families with a Christ-centered place to receive resources, encouragement, and training to make disciples in their homes.
Our vision is for parents to be instructed, trained, encouraged, and coached to pass the Christian faith on to their children through spiritual conversations, family devotions, life connections, rite, and rituals, in a natural “as you go” manner.
