Grow@Home

Parent Resources


Grow@Home is a churchwide commitment to encourage spiritual growth at home. Spiritual training at home and regular attendance at Life Bible Study and Milestones at Houston’s First lay the foundation for a deep and lasting faith. The goal of NextGen Ministry is to aid families in becoming the primary disciplemakers of their children.

NextGen wants to help families of kids 18 and under to G@H through . . .

      G@H Experience

      Here’s our TOP Five list of how to start making disciples of your child:

      1. Use dinner time to pray and to talk about spiritual things.
      2. Encourage them to read their Bible (or read to them) each day and plan a weekly time to discuss what your family is learning.
      3. Ask how you can pray for them and then do!
      4. Encourage them to talk about their faith as part of their everyday experiences.
      5. Fall in love with Jesus yourself and share that experience with your son or daughter.
