Free Resources for Churches
Faith Fosters Texas provides numerous resources in support of churches who want to care for vulnerable children and families.
These resources and much more can be accessed by registering with Faith Fosters Texas and joining the members only section.
A partial list of resources includes:
Faith -- This short guide is directed to ministry leaders to provide a case for support in engaging in this ministry. This includes where to find needed information, next steps, and suggestions for leading your church to fulfill the James 1:27 mandate.
SERVE – A 4-session asset mapping exercise that will result in a ministry action plan. Many churches want to get involved but don’t know where to start, this is a great exercise to finding a launch point.
Family – Based off the picture given in Ecclesiastes 4 of a “cord of three strands”, this guide provides a formalized process for churches to wrap around families in their own church who have taken, or are getting ready to take placement of a child into their home.
reNEW – What about the family who has experienced loss due to a removal of a child? What is the church’s responsibility to them? This guide gives guidance to churches who wish to engage the biological family who has either experienced or is at risk of the removal of a child by DFPS. Coming in 2020.
Champions -- While ministerial staff need to be aware of and in favor of this ministry, it will require a Champion from within the church to drive the initiative internally. This guide will assist Champions as they take on operational leadership of this ministry. Coming in 2020
