Insight 192: FaithSoaring Churches Diversify the Definition of a Household

Congregations seeking to transform realize their future is not in emphasizing only the traditional nuclear family of mother and father, sister and brother, and cat and dog plus the father only working full-time outside the home. Some studies indicate this is less than 15% of all households now and going down.

One adult households are now the majority in North America. Single person households, one adult with children households, cohabitation households, grandparents raising grandchildren households, and three-generation households are just a few examples of this diversity. How many more can you name? How is your congregation addressing this diversity?
