OutreachEvangelism and family ministry outreach services
Family Shield understands that family ministry is a tool for effective outreach! Whether people are churched or unchurched they care about their families. Each year Family Shield hears from over 300 unchurched and unsaved individuals. Building a positive relationship with them is critical. Much of the time, FSM staff and volunteers are helping Christians learn to share their faith and minister more effectively in the home, church, and their communities. Training others to witness is part of evangelism! Many of the radio listeners are those who receive the FSM e-mail newsletter or call/write us and ask for prayer for their family members, those they are trying to witness to, and for advise and resources. FSM also receives many request for resources and advice from congregational Family Life Directors, and those who serve on the Board of Evangelism or Board of Education at their congregations.
A donor in Wisconsin told us recently that her congregation records and uses the Family Shield radio tapes on evangelism calls. They recognize that meeting needs helps them build positive relationships and gives them opportunities to share the law and Gospel. Learn more about the ministry to those who do not know Christ by listening to “Family Shield Reaches the Unchurched” on the website.
The Family Shield Counter-Cult Outreach Ministry
This area of our ministry specializes in witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons and assisting family members and friends of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons learn to witness to their loved ones. Many volunteers assist us with this area of ministry.
- Offers training seminars and workshops.
- Produces radio and cable TV programs on cults, the occult, and false religions.
- Produces, refers and connects individuals to resources and products.
- Witnesses to those involved in the Watchtower Bible and Track Society.

Many volunteers help us with this ministry. Some have loved ones that are involved in either the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. We also have many organizations on our Recommended Links that help equip people to witness to those involved in cults and the occult.
