• Mercy Hill Parent Commissioning

Why Parent Commissioning?

We believe that God has called parents to be the primary disciple-makers in their home, and Parent Commissioning is the first step of our church partnering with parents to raise up their kids to follow after Christ. The goal of Parent Commissioning is to begin a partnership between church and home. Whether you are a new parent through adoption, foster care, or birth, or a parent that’s newer to Mercy Hill, we desire to partner with you to raise your kids to follow Jesus. Through this event, we desire to celebrate the blessing of kids, explain to parents the important role they play in making disciples of their kids, and offer parents tools for the journey.

Parent Commissioning takes place a few times each year and is really a two part event. First we have a family brunch on Saturday morning with food provided by each families’ community group. At the brunch, you will hear from a pastor about the role parents play in their child’s spiritual development and how we, as a church, desire to partner with you along the way. You will also receive resources to get you started in discipling your kids. The second part takes place on Sunday as you and your children are asked to come up to the stage at the end of the 11:00am service at your campus to be prayed over by the church, as the church commissions you to disciple your kids.

Due to the commitment that the church is making to commission parents, we do have a few expectations of those who would join us for Parent Commissioning:

  • Parents must be active at Mercy Hill and involved in, or in the process of joining, a community group (If you are not yet in a group, click here to check out our page for information about jumping into a community group!)

  • Parents must register for the event online

  • Due to space limitations, each family is allotted one table for a total of 8 people at brunch

  • Parents are asked to attend both the Saturday and Sunday portions of Parent Commissioning

  • On Sunday, parents are welcome to place their kids in Mercy Hill Kids and pick them up by 11:45 AM for Parent Commissioning
