Why Visionary Families?  We believe that God has a plan for each and every person.  We also believe that God has designed the family to be the primary vehicle for spiritual growth in a young person’s life.  But where does one start?  The goal of this summit is to present parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and even prospective parents, with specific and practical ways to lead their families on a faith path patterned after God’s preferred vision for the family.  Get it?  Visionary families purposefully choose to follow God’s preferred vision.  If you are an adult with a vested interest in the spiritual life of a young person, this one day summit is for you.  

Walk-ins WELCOME! 

If you have specific questions you may contact our church office at 219.696.7591.  We look forward to unwrapping God’s preferred vision of families with you.
