The role that parents play in the faith formation of their children is and has been historically significant. Modeling their religious beliefs as well as verbalizing them play an important part in the child's view of God. It has also been found as this paper will articulate, that participation in the church life of the congregation and service projects are also an integral part of the development of the child's faith development into the adolescent years. This paper will review the importance of the parents as the primary participants of their own child's faith destiny and give applicable results for church leaders based from the findings of the research given.
