FamilyLife Canada has been teaching, training and equipping families for over 25 years. Here’s a quick look at what we’re all about….
FamilyLife Canada exists to bring help and hope to every marriage and family. We believe….
- The family is the foundation of every community.
- A healthy marriage is the cornerstone of a strong family.
- The ultimate and lasting strength of every marriage and family is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
This is the FamilyLife Team, women and men from coast to coast committed to changing Canada and the world by strengthening families. Individual biographies can be found below. If you are interested in joining our team and this cause, please contact us for more information.
