The first step on the discipleship pathway at 180° Church is Family Dedication. This is a seminar and a ceremony that normally occurs for parents who have children between birth and one year of age. Parents, through a two-hour seminar, learn how to become primary faith trainers for their children and accept the responsibility. Resources and learning opportunities are recommended for the new parents desiring to dedicate their child to the Lord. During the ceremony, the church body commits to partner with the parents in the faith development of the child for the duration of the journey. Some topics covered are Understanding Family Dedication, The Development of Your Child, The Importance of Mom and Dad, and Ways to Bless Your Child and Build Biblical Foundations.
