Family Conference 2017

Date: 21 - 22 July 2017
Price: R200

Something for every kind of family.

This is a family conference not a marriage conference. Its goal is to strengthen and build into the lives of homes and families whatever shape they are. The ministry will speak to the blended family, the single parent family, the divorced family, the family in crisis and more. It will include parenting, sexuality, marriage, intimacy, relating to siblings, extended family and financial health. This is a conference for everyone wanting to invest in their family and strengthen the core and foundation of God’s plan for our culture. It will only be a night and morning of valuable input that you cannot afford to miss.
