Cath McVey gets to talk about her two favourite things: children and mission! With experience in teaching, ministry and raising a family in Aotearoa, she shares how to support families in faith formation and develop rhythms of discipleship in the home. Enjoy a balanced perspective from someone who's done the hard yards.
