This research project is designed for Victory Baptist Church in Weatherford, Texas, to reach young families. The purpose is to design and implement a plan that educates, equips, and engages individual church members to evangelize young families in Weatherford. The necessity of this research is evident in the face of consequences surrounding the past three years involving the pandemic and a leadership change at VBC. The intervention is mobilizing the members of VBC to reach young families. This mobilization centers around training the membership to reach young families. Using surveys and questionnaires with the membership reveals what are the thoughts and feelings of the membership. This data, combined with the data of who has been visiting VBC in the past year provides a picture of the present state. Workshops that follow will educate, equip, and engage the membership to reach young families. Finally, a post-survey and visitor data will reveal if there is any change to the data. The VBC young family initiative addressed the problem but did not solve the problem as causation of positive results could not be established.
