list of ministers who minister to part member families

Missionaries asked for a list of ministers who minister to part member families or families with unbaptized children. Has anyone created such a list in MLS or LCR?

I no longer have access, but I used to be able to generate such a report by using a "spouse is not a member" filter. Keep in mind that this will completely miss any who are showing as single but have married someone who is not a member of the church - fairly common with less active young adults. Then you would have to identify who the ministers of those families - that may be a manual process...
I never tried unbaptized children, but if they are over 8 and members of record, that would be an easy list to generate. Again, I am not sure if you can print a list of un-baptized children and who their ministers are. I have been out of the Clerk role for over a year so don't know what the current LCR capabilities are.
In the old days (Pre-LCR), I think I could have generated both reports with MLS, but it seems that some of the MLS report functionality has been removed if I'm understanding other posts in the forum. Perhaps someone with more recent experience will chime in. If the Ministering assignments are no longer in MLS you certainly could not generate any automatic report from MLS that includes the minister assignments.
