Family Ministries

familyministrywebGod created the family to be the foundational element of society. Scripture clearly presents the relationships and roles God desires in our families and our sincere desire at Buford is that each family will know and practice all that God has shared with us. God has delegated the responsibility for raising children to fathers and mothers (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Ephesians 6:4; II Timothy 1:3-5). While our church family can and should have a major influence for good, God will ultimately hold our parents accountable (Malachi 2:15).

Our family and youth ministry supports parents and engages families. Serving others, growing spiritually and connecting socially are our primary focus. We have deacons leading and members actively involved in specific ministries including the following:

  • Young Families Opportunities for our parents and families to grow spiritually and socially through service
  • Young Children (K-4th Grade) Helping our primary school children develop relationships with each other and God
  • Junior LeadersAcquainting our K-2 students with what it means to serve each other and our community
  • Teens Ministry focusing on our Middle and High School students led by our full-time Youth Minister (Also referred to as "BYG" - Buford Youth Group)
  • Leadership Development Developing practical leadership skills for Kingdom service in our young people using the Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes Program
