    New Parenting App Launches – Faith Builders

    24 April 2024

     

    Sydney, AUSTRALIA — The Greater Sydney Conference’s (GSC) Family & Children’s Ministry Department proudly launched the Faith Builders parenting app during GSC Big Camp on April 25, 2024.

    “Despite the best church and school programs and resources, we are still losing between 50% and 90% of the children from our churches,” says Pastor Daron Pratt, Director of Children’s Ministry and Family Ministries for GSC. “Something needs to change. This app was developed in response to recent research that indicates children are more likely to adopt the faith of their parents. What happens at home trumps everything else. This app seeks to help parents be the best they can possibly be when it comes to passing on faith to our children.”

     

     

    The app is aimed at parents and grandparents of children aged 0-14. It includes coaching questions and practical steps based on seven elements that research shows are needed to help children grow in faith: intergenerational mentors, family memories, quality time, faithful and loving parents, awesome stories, great marriages, and family services.

    “Every morning, the app posts a notification with a question that helps parents and guardians think, ponder and be more intentional in their spiritual parenting,” says Pastor Pratt. “For those parents who want to dig deeper, further research and ideas around each of the seven elements is provided as well. If this app helps parents be at their best spiritually, then it is a winner for everyone, especially the children.”

    The app will be free to download, as it has been sponsored by GSC. It will be available on the App Store and Google Play. Search for “Faith Builders” to find it on or after April 25.
