Our Team

Training the next generation to love God, love people and to maintain a vibrant, sustainable faith is a calling like none other.

 

Ministry is hard.

Parenting is harder.

Church has become complicated, culturally-questionable and is losing its stamina.

 

We’ve been there. We’ve done that.

 

We care about families and the future of our faith. It’s our privilege to support you as you live out this incredible calling. Connect with us to see how we can partner.
