PROVIDE PARENTS TIME TO RELAX WHILE FELLOWSHIPPING WITH OTHER COUPLES
Our conferences give parents a much-needed break from hectic routines, while children are being taken care of at local church children’s care centers. We strive to ease the stress of busy schedules, and to provide time off to spend as a couple. In a relaxed environment, couples can catch up on thoughts they are having about family, church, and ministry, as well as enjoy the city around them that they toil to serve! Woven throughout the conferences are seminars about various family and marriage issues. Each conference is a unique and special opportunity to spend time together and with other couples.
REVEAL THE JOY THAT IS POSSIBLE IN CHRISTIAN HOMES
Our families are called to be models of the joy that God brings us in Christ. However, we often cannot find the time to reveal this in our life. Faith & Family is working to realize the vision of families that are the “salt and light” by organizing special time on behalf of the families we serve. It’s our way of saying “thanks” to families for serving Jesus with all their might. We are excited to reveal the joy that is promised to those who raise their family to say like Joshua, “as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)
STRENGTHEN THE BIBLE-BASED FAMILY MOVEMENT
Our conviction is that God is the center of marriage originally, and that only marriages with His Son as the center can be truly rock-solid. Therefore, we encourage families to join together with us as we strengthen the “Bible-based family movement” that is building up around the nation and world. Churches and organizations are finding back this core meaning in marriage: that when we put our families under the guidance of Scripture, God can see us through the entire journey of marriage and life. In our conferences, we hope to provide a connecting point to this movement.
GIVE COUPLES A CHANCE TO CONNECT WITH LOCAL CHAPTER COUNSELORS
At conferences, couples have a chance to meet with their chapter counselors and discuss issues at length. In a comfortable environment, counselors can share about biblical truths that guide family building and marriages. This exchange of wisdom is at the heart of the foundation – passing down biblical principles for today’s families.
