The Family Project

As God’s people are transformed by a better understanding of His plan for the family, we’ll be better able to show His love for humanity.

Through churches, small home groups, and other venues, The Family Project, a project of Focus on the Family, will equip Christians to:

  • Truly understand the significance of God’s great plan for humanity through the family.
  • Live with purpose and an eternal perspective.
  • Model God’s redemptive design for family to neighbors, peers, coworkers, and, ultimately, culture.
