Your ministry to infants provides many parents with their first exposure to your children's ministry. The care you give can build relationships that minister to families for years. Before you build relationships, however, you will need to build trust. Parents of infants need to know they can trust you with their babies.

This tool is adapted from "Experience the Wonder of Life Change," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by Otis Price. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
