FAMILIES

Family

If your family isn’t perfect, you are in good company. Truth be told, there are no ideal families - just real families. Have you noticed Jesus’ family tree? It contains polygamist, adulterers, prostitutes, and murders to name a few. That might make your family reunion suddenly feel a little tame. 

Here’s what’s amazing, God uses these family members and others that are scarred, scared, and sad. God has helped so many of us through struggles in order to rediscover blessing and joy. God seeks to use our families to find our identity and purpose in Jesus.

The Family Ministry wants to help provide the tools and people resources to nurture marriages, develop deep relationships and friendships, learn scriptural principals for family life, lean hard and fast on a loving God, and lead children in a relationship with Jesus. We seek to be a ministry that helps families pursue and lay these foundation building blocks.
