Congregations seeking to transform innovate by addressing the needs of unique ministry opportunities. They are not just focusing on the same priorities as thousands of other congregations. They focus on priorities where they may even have strengths.

Taking care of grandchildren on a continual 24-hour basis is a challenge that is draining on grandparents. Physically, mentally, and spiritually they are impacted. What can your congregation do to address this unique ministry?
