WHY: The Chapel believes God designed the family to be the primary disciple-making relationship. In other words, God gave parents the privilege of nurturing faith in the next generation. That's why the Faith Map was created, as a step-by-step plan to help you be intentional as you prepare for key faith markers and foster spiritual disciplines in your child's faith journey.

WHAT: The Faith Map strategy is intended to help you devote a clear plan to intentionally pointing your child toward Christ in an age appropriate manner. We trust that you are naturally exposing your child to many of these faith practices or preparing for certain markers at specific ages and stages. Each marker below includes training, resources and ideas to help you guide your child along the way.

WHEN: You can start today regardless of your child's age or stage of development. Don't worry if you miss a marker or if you start the process with an older child. You can always go back and emphasize earlier markers. We also encourage you to reinforce these practices as your child matures rather than view them as a one-time emphasis. You'll find recommended resources and ideas for beginning each marker in your child's life and continuing as he or she matures.
