Pass the Legacy Premise : 4

There is an urgency to inform and equip “grown” parents to prayerfully reach out to their children & grandchildren.

Perhaps at no other time in history has a call to spiritual leadership from parents and grandparents been as critical as it is today?! (Cavin Harper, intro to Lillian Penner’s Grandparenting with a Purpose).  Even though we live in the “sunny South”, the heartland of the Bible belt, we are in a world that is hostile to the truths of scriptures.  There is a sense of urgency to cast the above visions to grown parents and grandparents in order to keep the hearts and minds of the next generations safe and in the loving care of our Heavenly Father.  It is the mission of “Pass the Legacy” to wake up parents and grandparents to the critical need for them to stand strong in their faith, become courageous prayer warriors and to pass a legacy of faithfulness to the next generations.
